GT Task 1: A few problems have emerged in your apartment

IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You have been living in an apartment for the last three years. A few problems have emerged in your apartment since the last repair.

Write a letter to your landlord.

In your letter,

  • give details of the last repair work
  • what the problems are now
  • how you would like the landlord to solve these problems

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear ………………….,

Sample Answer 1:

Dear Mr Daniel,

I am writing this letter to remind you about some emergency repair works that need to be carried out at the flat I am living in.

The last time you did the repair work in the kitchen, one of the bathrooms and two windows was almost two years ago. The repair work was done very professionally, and except for the kitchen, other works still look new.

However, this time, other problems have emerged, and I have detected a few leaks in the kitchen which need to be fixed immediately. The paint has started to come off, and I am not sure when was the last time the flat was painted. Besides, there is water logging in the drain pipes and it is causing great inconvenience for me.

I would greatly appreciate it if you could arrange for these repairs and paint works as soon as possible by hiring a professional service as you did before. Please contact me on my mobile phone to make arrangements for the work to start.

Thank you in advance for your support.

Yours sincerely,

Maria Garcia
