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
