Application Cover Letter
Rental application letter
It’s a good idea to add a cover letter with your application to introduce yourself to the agent/house share. It adds a personal touch to your application and provides information that is relevant to your application.
The main areas of interest to a potential house sharer or landlord is:
- You can & will consistently pay your rent
- You will look after the property
- You won’t cause issues for them or the neighbours
Answering the questions in this form will help you create a cover letter to include with your rental applications. You will be able to edit the letter to make it suit you. Remember – it’s just a guide so edit it as much as you like!
Informal application message
When looking at established share house vacancies it is a good idea to provide a brief message with information about yourself. The following questions will help guide you to create a message about you as a potential house mate.
Answering these questions will create a template you can edit & then send to people who are advertising a spare room on Facebook/Gumtree flatmates.com etc
It can be competitive when applying for rentals with so many other people applying for the same property/vacant room. How can you stand out from all the other applicants? Providing a cover letter to your application adds a personal touch. It can also highlight why you are the better applicant. But what do you write & how? We have created a form to help you write a letter that you can then edit to suit you.
