Ms. Happy Landlord
123 Street
Suite Z
City, State, Zip Code

Dear Ms. Landlord;

This letter is to express interest on behalf of (insert name of your business), in leasing the property located at: (insert complete address including street address, unit or suite number, city, state and zip code).

(Insert name of your business) is a (insert type of business you own - LLP, partnership, sole proprietorship, etc.) that (insert brief statement about what your business does).
(Insert name of business) has been in operation since (insert start date or number of years in business). Due to exciting growth we need larger (or, additional, more suitable, etc.) facilities.
(Note: Even if you work from home do not offer this in your proposal letter. Try to avoid offering in this initial contact that you have a home-based business - it may make you sound small and unstable to a landlord.)

After carefully evaluating fair-market value I (we) propose the following terms for your consideration:
LIST ALL TERMS HERE including length of lease, renewal options, rent, added fees, type of lease, annual increases, etc. Anything you want to include or address in the lease detail in this paragraph. Be sure to include any renovations or repairs you want or need the landlord to make to the space or that you would do yourself. Ask for free rent, furniture, extra parking - anything you might need to make the space work best for your business.

I am excited at the prospect of leasing the above-mentioned space and feel that (insert name of business) would be an asset to you. If you have any questions about this proposal of leasing terms, or our business, please contact me at (insert phone number and best time call) or by email at: (insert your email address)

Thank you for taking the time to consider this offer. I look forward to a prompt and favourable reply.
Respectfully submitted,
