Before signing my lease soon, I’d like to ask my landlord to shorten my lease from a one year rental to a six months rental. The reason is I’m not sure I want to stay a full year in Scotland because I’m French and I would probably need to come back home during the year. I take the same flat from 2 years now, I’m a reliable tenant who has never caused any problems, and I’m preparing to rent it again a full new year. But I’m afraid it is too long for me.
Can you give me some tips or help me to write a short letter to my landlord (actually, I don’t know him or her, he’s represented by an estate agent) to ask to transform my lease from a one year term rental to a six months rental ?
Thank you for your help
