Sample Answer 1:

Dear Ms Linda,

I am Ramesh, tenant of one of your properties in William Street, Norwood. My flat number is 17. I am writing this to bring my dissatisfaction on some of the household stuff that you have provided as part of our rental agreement.

In the living room, the sofa is in pathetic condition. The colour of the cushion cloths is totally faded out and they are stinking too. The coffee table is disjointed. Some of the buttons of the remote controller for the television are not functioning. In the kitchen, the refrigerator is not maintaining temperature accurately and I found it futile. Grocery cupboard door locks are missing. Overall, some of the furniture you have provided is in faulty condition.

I request you to look into this matter seriously. I recommend you to arrange for repair and maintenance of the living room furniture and replace the fridge. New keys for the cupboard can be prepared by a locksmith. I expect your action on this as soon as possible, as these problems affecting my daily routine.

Yours’ Sincerely,
Ramesh.

Sample Answer 2:

Dear Ms Saradha,

I am your new tenant of the flat number 106, Priya. Hope you are doing great. I am writing in connection with the bad condition of the furniture in my apartment.

As you already know, the legs of the dining table are unequal in length. So this is causing lots of problems for me. Miserably, my mom could not place all the prepared dishes on the table since there is always a probability of the recipes being spilt. While I signed the contract of my accommodation, you assured me that it would be replaced soon. In spite of staying here for more than two months, it has not been remedied. Imagine how awful it would be, because of this reason, we are not enjoying our lunch and dinner!

It would be highly appreciated if you could kindly find a replacement for this furniture soon and make our stay comfortable.

Looking forward to hearing your swift solution.

Yours sincerely,
Priya

Answer:
Dear Mr Kashani,

I am Mohammad Mahdi Akbari, the tenant of your Zanbaq 13 street house. The objective for which this letter has been written is to let you know about some household furniture which makes me fretful as well as peevish.

As is seen in our rental contract, all furniture have to be functional, while I've had a bitter experience with some. As a case in point, dining table's leg disjointed, meanwhile, the air conditioner doesn't work properly and we are suffering from hot weather. Further and more importantly, the temperature control of the refrigerator occasionally fails. Therefore, we face food spoilage time to time.

I would highly appreciate if you can arrange to fix those issues or replace the faulty furniture and equipment within this month. I have never made any delay to pay my rent and have always adhered to our contact. I expect you the same.

Yours truly,
M.Akbari

Mater is not correct, "matter" would be correct.
