Dear Paul,

Hope you are doing great. It's been so long since I last wrote you and you have been silent from your end as well. I want to share a good news with you - I have got a new job with an attractive package, lucrative benefits and better career prospects and I will move to your city next month.

I want some help from you before moving to this city and it is related to finding a place to live in. I want to reside near the South Delhi resident. My office is in South Delhi centre area, so I want a place close to my office. Even my children’s school will be near my office. So I think this location would ideal for me and my family. I heard many times that traffic is a big problem in Delhi, so I believe staying near my office and children’s school would be the perfect solution to avoid choking traffic problems.

Furthermore, I would prefer to rent a flat with two bedrooms, one kitchen, one guest room and a large hall. However, I would like to have a flat with amenities such as playground, parking area and of course full-time security.

I am sure you will help me out to find a good accommodation so that I can settle down quickly and without much hassle. I will inform you shortly my date of arrival.

Best regards,
