Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write and addresses.

Dear ..........,


Sample Answer 1:

Dear Ms Linda,

I am a tenant in one of your properties in William Street, Norwood. I am writing this letter to bring your attention to some of the substandard furniture that you have provided as part of our rental agreement. I am hoping that you would either fix them or replace them with new ones.

In relation to the specifics, I live in apartment 17B with my family for the last 4 months. We were excited when we moved into this apartment but disappointed when we found that some of the stuff were old and torn down. The sofa set in the living room has the worst condition. The colour of the cushion has faded out and they are not usable. The coffee table has a broken leg. Besides, the refrigerator in the kitchen does not maintain the desired temperature accurately and the grocery cupboard door locks are missing. Overall, some of the furniture and stuff you have provided is in faulty condition.

I request you to look into this matter urgently. 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 are affecting our living and well-being.

Yours Sincerely,

Ramesh Roy

Sample Answer 2:

Dear Ms Saradha,

Hope you are doing great. I am a new tenant in your apartment 106-C, writing in connection with the defective condition of some of the furniture in my apartment. I am hoping that you would arrange to replace them soon.

In relation to the specifics of the faulty furniture, the legs of the dining table are uneven and it makes the table unusable. Besides, two chairs are missing. On top of that, the sofa set in the living room is old and substandard. It needs to be replaced immediately.

While I signed the rental contract, you assured me to have these pieces of furniture replaced. Two months have already elapsed but nothing has been done. Imagine how awful it is that we can not enjoy our dinner together and cannot seat in the living room!

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

I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours sincerely,

Priya Nivetha

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.
