The tenancy is the act of renting a room, apartment, or space for a given period for commercial or residential use under a given agreement between the tenant and the landlord. An approved tenant letter is a formal letter written by the owner to the tenant, indicating the acceptance and approval of the tenant rental contract by the owner. An approved tenant letter tells the tenant that his/her application has been approved, and both parties are ready to sign a rental agreement.
