You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
You have recently moved to a new flat. Unfortunately, you lost some money the other day and cannot afford to pay next month’s rent which is due. Write a letter to the landlord explaining the situation and that you will pay as soon as your parents send the money. Also, mention that there are some problems with the flat.
Write at least 150 words.
Dear Mr. Smith,
I am writing to inform you there would be a delay in paying you next month’s rent, which is currently due.
As per the agreement which was signed last month, the advance rent has to be paid on 25th of every month, and I was ready for the payment this week. However, yesterday, when I was returning after a get together with friends, one of my friends met with a bike accident, and I took him to the nearest hospital in a cab.
I returned home by around 1 am, and it was then I realized I lost my wallet in which my credit card was kept. Very soon I received a message that $1000 got debited from my account. I lost the money which was kept aside for the rent payment, and so I informed the incident to my parents.
My father has agreed to pay the rent amount within a week, and I would make the payment immediately as I receive the fund. I would like to remind you that some switches in the apartment are malfunctioning. It would be appreciated if you could make prompt arrangements to fix the same.
I apologize for the inconvenience caused and look forward for a favorable reply.
