Dear Mr. Smith,
I have been a tenant in your accommodation for the past eight months and have been paying all rental and maintenance bills on time.
As mentioned to you many times earlier, we are facing severe problems due to seepage in the bed-room wall due to internal leakage in the pipes leading to the wash-room. Since I have a baby who is barely one year old who is already suffering from bronchitis, such seepage and accumulation of fungus could aggravate her existing condition.
Our pediatrician checked on her condition and recommended that we keep her out of damp and wet room which is not feasible since we have only one bedroom.
Since this apartment is a ten minute-drive to work for myself and my wife, I would rather stay put and undertake repairs than shift to another accommodation. I request you to kindly send a plumber to undertake the abovementioned repair at the earliest and oblige so that we have a comfortable stay in your accommodation.
I have been your tenant from past one year and I have never has such problem before and I like this place very much but off late I am facing a problem where in there is a leak in the bedroom and whenever there is rain there is a major leak and the water drips directly on the bed.
You must be aware that I have a 2 month old baby and my wife has still not completely recovered after delivery. Last week some guys came and repaired the place but still there is leak since its winter and very cold the water is dripping and spreading to the entire wall which makes the room even colder.
I hope this time you get it repaired properly. This flat is very comfortable for me and is very near to my office but if this problem persists I will be forced to leave the house. Please help me out with this situation. I hope you will take the situation seriously.
