You will move to a new city for work. You know some people who live there. Write a letter to one of your friends. In your letter:
- Ask them for help finding accommodation.
- Tell them where you would like to live.
- Tell them the type of place you are looking for.
Sample 1 You Will Move to A New City for Work
I hope this letter finds you well. It has been a long since we have not written to each other. You will be glad to know that a new job in your city, Melbourne, will be taken by me in a few weeks.
This letter is being written to let you know about my new workplace and to request you find suitable accommodation for me in Melbourne, where you have been living for the past 15 years. The office would offer a house for the first two weeks, but it is assumed to be vacant afterwards.
I would prefer the accommodation near my workplace in the city centre as it would save me time and money to commute. It is absolutely fine for me to share a room with a native person to enhance my knowledge about their culture as well. Please make sure that accommodation is provided with a kitchen so that meal-related issues can be avoided.
Hoping that it would be easy for you to find suitable accommodation in my budget as you have a wide social circle in this city. I would really appreciate your efforts and time.
Sample 2 You Will Move to A New City for Work
I hope this letter finds you well. I am excited to share that I will be moving to London soon for work! As you are already living in the city, I was hoping to ask for your help finding suitable accommodation.
I have done some research and found that the city has a lot of options when it comes to housing, but since I am new to the area, I am not sure where to start. I was wondering if you could recommend any good neighbourhoods or areas to look for housing in. I would really appreciate your help.
Ideally, I am looking for a one or two-bedroom apartment that is located close to my workplace. I will be working in the downtown area, so if you know of any apartments in that vicinity, it would be great. Additionally, I would prefer a place that is within a reasonable distance from grocery stores, restaurants, and other amenities.
I am hoping to move into a fully furnished apartment since I will not have much time to arrange for furniture and appliances. A place with a good internet connection and ample parking space would be ideal.
I am planning to move to the city in the next few weeks, so if you could help me with the accommodation search as soon as possible, that would be great.
Thank you so much for your help. I am really excited to start this new chapter in my life, and your support means a lot to me.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
