Letter Writing # 265 - You want to extend your rental agreement

IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You have been living in a rented apartment for the last two years. Your rental agreement will expire in two months, but you want to extend it for another two years.

Write a letter to the agency. In your letter,

  • introduce yourself
  • say why you want to extend the contract
  • mention what changes you would recommend in the contract

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear Sir or Madam,


Model Answer: 

Dear Sir or Madam,

My name is Andy Fowler, and I live in an apartment in the south block of the Stavrolia Apartment complex, operated by your agency.  And the reason, for which, I am writing this letter to you is that I want to renew the rental agreement for another two years since my current lease agreement is about to expire in the next couple of months. 

I have been living in this apartment complex for the last two years, and my entire family have enjoyed living here since the day we arrived here because it is a nice neighbourhood.  But, the main reason, for which, I want to renew my rental agreement is that a major highway has recently been built, close to this apartment complex, which cuts my commuting time to work to almost half.  

By the way, I would also like to include a new term in the contract which should say that I will not be using the laundry facility of this apartment complex since I have got my own laundry machine now.  So please deduct this service cost from my monthly charges. 

I would like to request that please renew my lease agreement for another two years with the new term in it at your earliest convenience. 

Yours faithfully,

Andy Fowler
