Letter to Landlord
to Self Repair

You may have no choice but to write a letter to landlord to self repair damages to a property if you choose to stay there.

You already wrote a letter to request repairs as well as a letter informing him that you will be withholding rent and you still got no reaction.

You either decide that you will take it upon yourself to do the repairs, or they may be so serious that you do not want to stay at the property any longer - in which case you write a Letter to Landlord to Terminate Lease.

Refer to the information on our Renters Rights page to make sure you comply with the law. Our Letter to Landlord page has samples of other letters.
