This is to acknowledge your interest to begin the application process and reserve the apartment. I am glad to know that this apartment satisfies what you are looking for. So you can have the apartment reserve now for your desire move-in date if you wish. Please note that the property is privately owned and there is no application fee for this apartment. Electricity, garbage and other bills are included in the rent, fully furnished with sheets, towels and kitchenware and can also be rented unfurnished, if you wish to bring your furniture you are free to do so. There is Washer/Dryer in the unit..

As mentioned in my previous email the apartment will now be available for viewing from March 16; this is because the current occupant's lease expires March 14th and he is expected to move out on or before the lease expiration since he is not renewing the lease, while professional cleaning will be done on the unit the next day.

However, I want you to understand that the rental market in San Mateo is competitive, so the apartment is on high demand and if you are really interested in this apartment I will advice you try and secure it now so that you do not loose it to other prospective tenants. Due to the high demand who secures it first gets the unit. To lock down the unit you will have to deposit only the first month's rent plus the refundable security deposit after completing all the relevant rental documents. The payment is to be made upon signing of the lease contract to the landlord's account as I am under no obligation to collect money from renter. Note that if you choose to lock down the unit now, and if after you have viewed the unit and you are not satisfied you can request for a REFUND which will be given to you that same instant. The terms and conditions of the contract gives you full refund if you do not want the apartment upon viewing.

Lease Plan Available:
- One Month rent with a refundable security deposit.
- 3 months upfront rent payment attract 10% discount of the total plus refundable security deposit.
- 6 months upfront payment attract discount of 10% of the total rent plus a refundable security deposit.
- Upfront payment a year lease attracts 15% discount of the total rent with a refundable security deposit.

In the meantime, I have attached the rental application form, kindly download the form, fill out all necessary fields and return to me by e-mail or fax along with a copy of your ID and as soon as I receive the filled form I shall forward the lease contract agreement for your review.

I will await your earliest response so that we can proceed with the securing of the apartment for your lease duration.

My Regards,
Frank Armstrong
