Letter Writing # 306 - You want to rent out a small apartment to a family

IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You want to rent out a small apartment to a family, and you have decided to advertise it.

Write a letter to the editor of a local newspaper asking to advertise your ad on the front page of the newspaper. In your letter,

  • give details of the ad that you want to publish
  • mention that you want the ad to be published on the front page
  • say how you would like to pay for the advertisement

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,

I am a resident of Longhorn city, and I thought that your local but very popular newspaper would be a great platform to publish my ad for renting my small apartment.

This advertisement should include information like how many persons can stay in the apartment, what kind of amenities or services it offers to its tenants, and how long the initial lease should be. Apart from these, the advertisement should include my contact details so that prospective tenants can contact me. 

So, based on the information above that I want you to publish an advert for me in your newspaper, and I think that it should be a few lines long. But, regardless of how many lines or words should my advertisement contain, I want it to be published on the front page of your newspaper so that it gets a maximum number of views.

And as for the payment of the publishing cost of the ad, please send me an invoice, citing the amount of money to be paid, and I will immediately send a check to you. If you want, I could deposit the money into your bank account also.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Peter Lazaros
