Am really interested in renting from you and i do really pets
but i don't have any at the moment. I would have loved to see it but am very far,but with pictures,I am glad. I will also like you to tell me more about you and if you have garage or parking space cos I will
have my own car come over, pls let me know the total payment of the place and more over I will send your email to my dad for him to email you later bcos he is the one that will be paying the bills but nevertheless,I will like you to send me the following details so that my Dad will issue out the payment for the place as soon as possible;

With that you can hold on the place for me till i come . I will be looking forward to your email soonest.

I will be paying you the rent then you will help me pay the apt manager this is the more reason why i asked my dad to make the payment payable to your name. I will attach my flight itinerary in the next email so that you can know the exact time and date i will arrive next week ,Also i will like to know if you can pick me up at the air port on my arrival because this is my first time of coming to the state and i don't know anybody.As regards my furniture and my car,there is plan to have them delivered to the house before my arrival so that i can settle in comfortably also i'm paying more and more for having my items with the Company (demo rage),you can understand that transiting cross Atlantic is not easy so i am making arrangement with the furniture company to deliver some furniture and the car before my arrival this week after you have gotten the rent and security deposit.I will ask you for a favour here,can i rely on you to take delivery of my furniture and the car for me when they are delivered.I will instruct the furniture company to contact you to schedule a
delivery time that will be convenient for you to receive the items for me .As you will be handling the delivery of the itemswith the rent and deposit that will be sent to you so that you can help me to make the payment when they are delivered.I will really appreciate if you can do this for me and promise to compensate you adequately for your time and efforts on my arrival in your place.
