Writing Task 1
Your rental accommodation was recently damaged due to bad weather. Write a letter to the landlord and say:
– Explain what caused the damage.
– Why do you need them to fix the problem right away?
– What needs to be done to fix it?
Last week’s inclement weather wrecked a huge damage to almost all coastal properties in Halifax. However, the damage to my house was much more severe and it needs to be urgently fixed. (Communicate the overall message and need for urgency.)
Strong blizzard winds (Strong snow storm) from the North dealt a heavy blow to the city’s infrastructure in general and to this house in particular. The storm somehow ruptured the outer walls and destroyed a portion of the house’s heating system. Consequently, the drawing room’s and bathroom’s heating systems are not working. Moreover, a few wide cracks have appeared in the house’s roof.
Since it is icy cold outside and cracks in the structure are dangerous, I believe you need to urgently fix this issue. Please call a heating systems contractor and a construction contractor, and get the repair estimate prepared quickly. I am sure the property is insured against damage caused by weather. The insurance company will release the funds immediately.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
