IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
You live in a flat and you have a tenancy agreement which states that you must give three months' notice when you wish to leave. You have paid a deposit of two months' rent. Now a member of your family has a problem and you need to give up your flat and return home as soon as possible.
Write a letter to your landlady. Explain your circumstances, tell her what you intend to do and ask her for special consideration.
You should write at least 150 words.
You do NOT need to write your own address.
Begin your letter as follows:
Dear Mr Milan,
I am David Sergel, a tenant of your apartment D#4 at Birmingham Garden street. I am writing to ask a favour from you due to a family emergency and I need to vacate your flat next month - 30th June 2018, to be exact.
I have signed an agreement while moving to your flat which bounds me to notify you three months prior to empty the flat. I have always respected the contract and paid my rent in time. During my 11 months' stay at your falt, I have never asked your favour but this time I am relying on your kind consideration. My elder brother, who looks after our family business, has been diagnosed with a serious disease and has been transferred to a hospital in Manhattan. My family needs me to look after the business and be with them right now.
The circumstance has forced me to give up the training programme that I am pursuing and return home immediately. I have decided to leave England and return my home country on 2nd July 2018.
I, therefore, request you to consider my situation and permit me to vacant your flat on a month's notice. I have already paid two month's rent in advance and would request you to return me a month's rent which is £750. I have always known you as a benevolent person and would not have requested your favour otherwise.
