You are a student at an English language school in Brighton and are living in private accommodation with other flatmates. You have not had hot water or heating for some time. The landlord’s workmen have tried to fix the problem but without success.
Write a letter to the landlord. In your letter,
- state your reason for writing
- describe the problems and explain how you feel
- propose a solution and risk the landlord to take action
Dear Mr. Bright,
How are you? I hope you are doing great. I am writing this letter with a heavy heart, in spite of countless efforts made by the workmen you have sent, the problem of hot water fixation is not yet solved. We are six Girls living in your apartment, and as you know, the winters are approaching next month, and it’s quite cold now as well. The requirement of warm water has become the necessity of the hour.
Furthermore, Our Semester examination is approaching, and we need to dress appropriately during these days; it has not only become difficult for bathing and washing clothes but also to cook food when hot water is not available. All of us use our university’s washroom for the purpose of showering and cleaning clothes.
We request you to please look into the problem on a personal level, either restore or replace the entire hot water system with a new one or we will be ending our term of the lease with you from next month. An early measure from your end would be highly appreciated.
