TO: Landlord's Name

FROM: Your Name

I previously informed you, in a letter dated __________, of several problems and the need for repairs at the rental property I am occupying. Since you have not taken any steps to correct the problems, it is necessary for me to take further action.

I have opened an escrow account at the following financial institution:





City, State, and Zip Code:


I have deposited $__________ from my rent into the escrow account. This shows that I was ready, willing, and able to pay the rent ontime—but for certain problems that you, the landlord, are legally responsible for fixing. Once the problems are taken care of, the escrowed rent amount will be released.

If you wish to discuss this matter further, contact me at _________________________.
