    Default Wish all landlords were like this

    I got a surprising phone call today from my real estate. I recently had a 12 month inspection and they were very happy with the condition I've maintained the house in, so much so that my landlord has left me a $250 cheque to say thanks for being a good tenant. I'm stunned by it and it couldn't have come at a better time with a bill due this week. I'm a sole parent not working so finding this house in the first place was pretty hard, I was lucky to get it the landlord had read my cover letter and gave me a chance. I feel like I should show my appreciation somehow but no idea how a card or something? I know his name but have never met him and don't have any contact details.

    Wow, that's amazing! It's so nice he went to that effort to make you feel appreciated.

    Good tenants are very hard to come by so I'm glad he did that for you.

    A simple thank you card would be okay, but you don't really have to. He gave you the money as a thank you for being such a good tenant, so clearly he is thrilled with you already.

    How awesome!

    He was thanking you with a rent rebate , no need to return the gesture, ask the PM to pass on your thanks though.

    We had a few landlords on our rent roll who would give a weeks rent back every Christmas to thank their tenants. Lovely gesture if you can afford to.

    My parents do stuff like this when they can, well I don't think they've ever given money but when their tenants were going through a hard time financially and still managed to pay their rent on time every week they gave them two weeks free rent at Christmas time to help. Honestly it was their way of thanking their tenants for looking after the place so well.
    You don't need to thank the landlord with anything, he has done it to help you out, just write a thank you card explaining how it made you feel and that will be enough.
