Just received this, for her 'house in nottingham!'

Hi Mel,

Thanks for your prompt reply. As regards to your request, i can place call through at the moment due to the nature of my work BUT i response to email intermittently. In case you wondering why the rent is so cheap, i am a private landlord but i don't live in the house so i am not really after high rent! All that i am after is a quality tenant that can really take good care of my house. However, i am renting the property out because i have just moved from Nottingham to Coventry where i currently live and work with Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust.

However, i am looking for a straight forward prospective tenant that could take good care of my property and all the facilities but it was unfortunate my past experience with people messing up with my time and do not turn up for viewing appointments, i need to go extra cautious about my time, efforts and reliable tenant selection, which is not wrong.

My solicitor would need some information from you to draft an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement which you will read, print and bring along when you're coming for the viewing. Details needed are:

Your full name?
Current address?
Preferred move in date?

I would like you to get back to me with these information so that i can tell you how to proceed. A prospective tenant came for viewing 8 days ago but i think she didn't have enough money for the security deposit. Please let me know if you have other options because i wouldn't want to schedule a viewing with you and get disappointed at the end of the day. Thanks for your interest.

I look forward to hearing from you.
