Model Answer 1:

Dear Mrs Anna,

I have recently agreed to rent your apartment and supposed to move there on August 1st. I am afraid I cannot do so in August due to some personal problems. I am hoping that you would allow me to move into your apartment at the beginning of September instead.

I am Koharu Rio, signed a rental agreement with you on July 15th and I am due to move into your apartment C4 located in the Cranberry Street on 1st of August. I have already paid you two months rent upfront. However, the sudden news of my mother-in-law's sickness propels us to change our plan. I along with my husband and children will travel to Japan sometime next week. I am not sure how long we will be staying there but it would not be less than a week I guess.

After we get back from Japan, my husband and I both will be terribly busy to cover our work at our offices and hence shifting our house would be impossible for us. I would request you to consider my circumstances and allow me to move into your apartment at the beginning of September.

I look forward to hearing from you soon regarding this.

Yours sincerely,

Koharu Rio


Sample Answer 2:

Dear Mr Alfred,

I am writing to inform you that I would not be able to move into your apartment, C-4, at the beginning of November as promised. Due to a professional reason, I am staying in Australia and will not be back before 28th November 2018. I am hoping that you would allow me to move into your apartment at the beginning of December instead.

I was expecting to finish my work at the end of this weekend. However, I would not act according to my plan as one of my clients had an accident and was admitted to a hospital. Doctors advised him complete bed rest for two weeks and strictly warned him not to take part in any business activity.

I would only meet him after two weeks from now, I wanted to skip the meeting but unable to do so due to numerous business works we take from this party. Therefore, I have changed my plan and will come back two weeks later than originally decided, which is 29th November. Considering the situation, I would request you to allow me to move into your apartment in the first week of December.

Yours faithfully,

Fahad Sultan
