IELTS General Writing Task 1 Sample Semi-formal Letter – Example 9
You live in a block of flats, your neighbour makes a lot of noise which has caused problems
for you. Write a letter to your landlord.
In your letter, you should:
- explain the situation
- tell him/her how you are affected by this
- suggest what you want the landlord to do.
I’m Ranjan Das, your tenant in the flat Z3 of apartment Spark Blossoms. I’m writing this
letter to bring to your attention the noise caused by the resident in Z3. This issue has been
persisting for over a month.
I’m forced to complain about the residents of Z3 because I’m not able to tolerate the noise that they make. They have purchased the flat Z3, a couple of weeks ago. I’m sorry to complain, but I’ve no choice. Mr. Subrajit, the owner of Z3, is a drunkard who beats his wife, and she yells like hell at about 12’o’clock during the night. I would also like you to know that my mother has chronic heart trouble. Due to the screams, she wakes up alarmed and sometimes does not sleep through the night. It is very harmful for her condition. I’ve notified the apartment association about this, but I’m waiting in vain for an action.Since he owns the house, he does not pay much attention to the complaints caused by tenants. So, I want you to pitch in and solve the problem. Else, I will have to move to another flat. I would appreciate your intervention in this regard.
