IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
You have been living in a rental apartment for the past year. Recently a new neighbour moved in and has been making a lot of noise, which disturbs you.
Write a letter to the landlord. In your letter:
- explain the situation
- describe why it bothers you
- suggest a solution
Write at least 150 words.
You do NOT need to write any address.
Begin your letter as follows:
Dear Mr. ...,
Dear Mr Hudson,
I am Elizabeth Beth, your tenant in the apartment D1-5. I am writing to notify you of the unbearable noise the new tenant of D1-3 is making which I have endured for the last couple of days with patience.
I consider myself lucky to have some great neighbours and never complained to you about a disturbance. However, the new resident on D1-3 is making life tougher for me. They moved in two weeks ago and I am already forced to write you this complaint letter. They have parties almost every day and listen to music with loud volume. I go to bed at around 10.30 pm only to wake up again by the loud noise from their flat. I am not sure if this is something I should mention but the family members have nasty quarrels and they do not keep it inside their house.
I live with my young daughter and husband who are equally agitated.
I think it would be inappropriate for me to personally intervein and that is why relying on you for a solution. You should talk to other tenants of floor D and get to know what really is happening. You have the authority to talk to the tenant of D1-3 and try to solve the problem. Otherwise, I would be forced to shift to a new residence.
Expecting your cooperation in this regards.
