In case you see any sign board, they are the Realtor in charge of my house before I decided to take over by my self. I am no more working with them and don't bother to contact them because formerly i wanted to sell the house before me and my Lovely Family now decided to rent it out instead of selling it out.

Thanks for choosing my home and remain bless.
Best Regards

Hello .... how are your day going? After reviewing your application we have decided to let you live in our house.. As we have found your application very satisfactory and acceptable by me and my family.So we would want you to go through this email and get back to us on what you feel so we could proceed in renting the house to you.
We would like to send the following documents to you via FedEx SHIPPING DELIVERING COMPANY to the address you sent to us, as you already know we are not around and the tracking number will be sent to you so that you can monitor the shipment of these keys and documents to possibly occupy our house. Please once again, we are giving you this based on trust so please do not disappoint us and i promise you that, you will love the house.

We are with the under listed documents here with us and you will need to make Payment for the security deposit which $950USD for commitment (POSSIBLY WITH THE FIRST MONTH RENT PAYMENT) to enable us send the Keys and documents to the address you have provided to us, after which you could move in at your convenience... The rent starts counting when you move in, so you could go ahead with the payment straight away to make things faster,so you can have the keys and documents of the house with you and then move in at your own convenience.

Here are the contents of the document that needs to be sent.

1) Entrance and the rooms Keys
2) Paper/Permanent house form
3) The house documentary file
4) Full Description of the house
5) Payment Receipt
7) A Copy Of Signed Lease Agreement Form

So please do get back to me today so that I will let you know the next step to take concerning the payment....,so you are free to decide on how long you intend occupying it...Rent already includes utilities..I'm ready to accept either monthly or upfront mode of payment..depending on the one you're most comfortable with..Utilities include:power, water,sewer and trash...Your monthly rent already covers utilities so you do not have to pay extra charges for that..

Please note that the deposit made is fully refundable should in case you finally gain entrance to the house after receiving the keys and documents and feel unsatisfied or uncomfortable with the interior,but i am giving you a benefit of doubt that you will love everything about this lovely home. Get back to me soon as possible if you're really interested in renting and promise to keep the apartment neat.

Best Regards
