Write a letter to the accommodation officer at the college.

In the letter,

•Describe the situation
•Explain your problems and why is it difficult to work
•Say what kind of accommodation you would prefer.

Dear Accommodation Officer,

I am writing this letter to bring to your notice about the various problems I am facing with the room I am living in. I am sharing this accommodation with another personm which I found difficult to live with and all this is hampering my work too.

The major problem with shared accommodation is no two persons are alike and their thoughts do not match. We have have very different styles of living. i work in morning shift ( 9 AM till 6 PM) and my roommate works in day shift (1PM – 10 PM). Whne he gets back to home he watches Television and carries on with his stuff but all these activities of him disturb me a lot. He sleep late and I have to wake up early, therefor, I am unable to sleep properly. All this is affecting my efficiency at work.

I would therefor, request you to please provide me a single room accommodation to help me survive better.

Yours faithfully,

My try on Letter to Accommodation Officer
by: Anonymous

Dear Sir,

I am writing this letter to express my dissatisfaction and discomfort that I have been going through with my current room. I would like to request for the new arrangement.

I am final year student, and I have my finals next month. However, I am unable to concentrate on my studies due to my roommate. Even though my roommate is a nice guy, but his certain behaviors, like noisy phone calls, loud music, and late night coming are having negative effects on my studies. Furthermore, he frequently brings his friends to our room and party with them till late night. I have tried several times to explain my situation to him, but everything is same. I need to score good marks for my future employment, and I hope you will consider my request seriously.

If possible, I would like a single room. However, in case if it is not possible, I would like a roommate someone who is serious with his studies, preferably someone from the final year. Moreover, I would like a noise-free room, probably on the top floor without shared terrace or balcony.

I hope you will take the appropriate actions as early to your convenience.

I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Sample letter
by: Anonymous

Dear Sir,

I would like to express my displeasure with respect to my accommodation. When I signed up for my MBA, I specifically requested for a single room. Unfortunately, this has not been the case and therefore, I am extremely disappointed with the situation and the circumstances impacting my accommodation.

To begin with, the room I live in could barely house 3 people. However, I find myself living with two roommates making it extremely uncomfortable for all of us. In addition, given my roommates are still in the 1st year of their degrees, they tend to spend a considerable amount of time outdoors during the nights. Often, they return to the room closer to dawn. This has significantly disrupted my sleep and I believe, it has negatively impacted my studies. I find it extremely challenging to concentrate on my lectures given the lack of sleep. To make matters worst, the music is constantly played loud making it almost impossible for me to focus on my assignments. My final thesis is due in 3 weeks, I am extremely worried about meeting the submission deadline.

Considering my desperate situation, I really feel something needs to be done. I kindly urge the management to relocate me to a single room. I would appreciate this as it would help me concentrate better at a very crucial juncture of my course and enable me to complete my studies.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Yours faithfully,

IELTS Letter - Problems with a Rented House

by Neha

You rent a four-bedroom house, which you share with two other students. However, there are several problems with this house that needs fixing. You also find it expensive and would like to find another student to share the spare bedroom.

Write a letter to the estate agency. In the letter:

- explain your situation
- describe the problems with the house
- say what you would like to happen

Dear Sir or Madam,

I, with two of my flat mates, are living in a 4-bedroom house and are facing several issues with the house that needs to be repaired.

One Glass Window had broken during the storm and requires repair as we can't close it properly. The lock of the drawing room's balcony door is not working since we rented the house, requires replacement. And there is a leakage of water in the kitchen's wash area. The water trips down to the cupboard below the basin that keeps the cupboard wet, moist and dirty. This needs to be sealed by a good water sealant so that water doesn't flow down to cupboard.

Also, we are looking for one more student who can share our 4th bedroom(spare) since the current rent of the house is bit expensive. Your help would be much appreciated in searching for our new flat mate and getting the repairs done as soon as possible.


(Please help me to know what grade I should expect in this task and what are my mistakes)

Letter to Landlord - Problems with Apartment

by Blankfaces

You recently moved into a two bedroom apartment with your friend and have discovered certain problems with it. Write a letter to the real estate agency.

In your letter:

1) describe the problem
2) explain why the problems are causing you inconvenience
3) say what you want the real estate agency to do

Write at least 150 words

Begin your letter as follows:


Dear Sir/Madam,

Last month me and my friend moved into the 2 bedroom apartment on Jersey Street. At the onset, eveything looked fine. But of late we have started to discover some grave problems with the property. I wanted to bring these to your kind attention as they are becoming a nuisance now.

The biggest problem that we have is the presence of roaches and bugs. They are everywhere in the apartment. We are at a grave risk of food poisoning and other illnesses due to them. In addition to that, we had to throw out a lot of our clothes as they were infested by bed bugs. Apart from these, there is an issue of seepage in the bathroom, which causes a foul smell in the whole apartment.

These issues have made living in the apartment really difficult and we constantly have to move back and forth to a friends place. I hope your good self will attend to these problems at the earliest so that the place can become habitable. We will be available for your inspection of the apartment on a 24 hour notice.

Yours Sincerely
