Dear Sir/Madam,

IELTS GT Letter: Problems with the Apartment, IELTS BAND7 DEHRADUN

Sample Answer

Dear Sir,
I am writing to bring to your notice the problems we are facing in our newly rented apartment. I am Anna White. My family moved to your flat number 131, Pacific Avenue, last month.

Overall, we are pleased with the facilities provided. But, for the last few days, the water supply has become very irregular. Water comes only in the evening from 6 pm to 7 pm. Apart from this, the water heater is not functioning. It is making a lot of noise and only cold water comes from the faucet.

As you know that my wife and I work in overseas firms. Our office timings are from 11:00 am to 8:00 pm. So, no one is at home to store water in the evening. Scarcity of water and non-functioning heater, both problems are causing a lot of inconvenience for us.

I had a word with the utility manager of the apartment. He assured us to resolve the issue. Unfortunately, it has been more than a week since then and no action has been taken to solve the problem. After waiting for many days, I decided to inform you. Please look into this matter as soon as possible.
I look forward to receiving a prompt response.
Yours Sincerely
Anna White

Sample Answer

Dear Mr. Singh

I hope this letter finds you in pink of your health. I am writing to inform you that my studies are really getting affected due to the new tenant, who has recently moved in upstairs. His name is Shantanu and his behaviour is quite weird.

Since, I am also a student and preparing for civil services, I need peace and silence to concentrate on my studies. Shantanu is a also a college going boy. However, he never studies. He is also a spoiled brat. His friends keep visiting him. they all drink and party till late night. Moreover, they also play music at a very high volume which not only disturbs us but others as well.

I have spoken to him about the disturbance and requested him to maintain some silence but, he did not cooperate at all. I would appreciate it if you could speak to Shantanu and ask him to exhibit the behaviour of a good citizen.

Thanking you in advance.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

WRONG-PRODUCT-DELIVERED Best IELTS Band 7 Coaching in Dehradun

Sample Answer

Dear Sir,

I am writing to express my dissatisfaction with the services provided by your company. I recently placed an order for a black party dress on your shopping site on 30th December 2018.

Although the maximum time of delivery in your company is 7 days, I received it after 10 days. The moment I unwrapped the courier, I was shocked to find a casual dress instead of a party dress. Moreover, the colour and dress material were different. You can imagine how unpleasant it was to receive wrong delivery of your much awaited product.

Since, I have to wear this dress in my friend’s birthday party, I immediately contacted your company I spoke to the customer care executive and asked for the exchange. To my surprise, he refused to exchange the product. Given the fact that I am a regular customer of your company, it was a very disappointing experience.

I insist you to urgently look into this matter. You can either exchange the dress or return the money, otherwise, I will be forced to go to the consumer court.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours Faithfully
