  • When you will pay the rent.

Dear Mark, I am penning down this letter to you to inform you about my inability to pay the rent of your apartment for September 2019 on time. As you are aware of my business already, with the stock markets falling drastically due to global slow down for the past few months. All my high-value stocks got curtailed, and I couldn't sell it on time to cross over by financial tide. I apologize for not being in touch with you earlier. However, I thought my hiccups would be cleared on time. Unfortunately, it doesn't happen as per my expectations. I understand the challenges of not paying the rent on time to you, which would affect your entire financial planning of the month. It is a temporary set back beyond my control, but I assure you of paying back the rent by the 21st of October 2019 without any glitches. I hope you will understand my situation and provide me three weeks to pay the rent for September 2019. I appreciate your support at this crucial juncture. Warm regards Mike
