By following these guidelines and using our template, you will be well on your way to securing the next flat or home of your choice. So let's get started!

Are you looking to rent a new apartment or house in the UK, but feeling overwhelmed by the competitive rental market? Finding a new home can be stressful, especially in the current market. That's why it's important to make a strong impression with your rental application. One way to do this is by writing a compelling rental application cover letter.

A cover letter for trying to secure a rental is a formal letter that introduces you to the landlord or property manager, and explains why you are the best candidate for the rental unit.

Writing a rental application cover letter can seem intimidating, especially in a market as competitive as the UK's. But don't worry! In this blog post, we provide a free template cover letter that will help you stand out from the competition and land your dream rental.
