Thanks for your mail ,Yes i appreciate your wanting to help us in
our situation.I am a chemist by profession and i am currently working

I will be in the states for the next one year and during my stay i will be
working with the United States Environmental Protection Agency on a
private research work.We have a financier that is based in the states and he
will be handling the rent deposit payment on our behalf,we will
instruct him to send you the check for this as soon as you give us the go ahead to make
payment to you.
Due to the limited time that we have before my arrival,i will be making
and arrangements with a furniture company to supply the home with furnit
ure,so we will need you to provide us with the measurements of the
living room and bedroom so that i can send it to the furniture
company so that they can supply the unit with furniture that will fit
in well.As regards the lease agreement,i want you to send it to me for my
review,i will eventually have it filled and signed on my arrival in
your place as i am of the opinion that such documents are best filled
and signed physically. We can start the lease by the 28 of Nov and we will be doing a
year lease although we will not be arriving until the end of Nov.You can prepare the lease in my name Dr.krine laffler.Please call my cell phone +447031920512 Let me know how to move ahead as i intend to complete this deal before my move in by the end of the month,i will let you know the exact date as soon as we get a booking on a flight to the states.
