Dear [landlord's name]:

This letter is a request for approval for me to paint and decorate my rental unit at my own expense. I am aware such actions are not permissible in the lease; however, I believe they will add value to the rental unit. Otherwise, I will restore the unit to its previous condition upon leaving, at my expense.

My specific plans for the unit are:

Thank you,
