Letter sample

Dear Samuel,

Let me introduce myself first. My name is Alex and I am the new tenant of the home opposite yours.

The reason that I am writing this letter is to apologise for the inconvenience caused by the party I organized at my home yesterday. I had invited some friends to my home. Since it was weekend they suggested that we should organize a party. I agreed and hired a DJ. As you should know, the party lasted till last night and I admit that noise levels were rather high. I am sorry to hear that it caused a great deal of inconvenience to you. Please accept my sincere apologies. I assure you that this will not happen again.

I am new in this town and I don’t have many friends here. I haven’t met most of our neighbours either. The next Sunday I am organizing a small party at my home. I have invited all our neighbours and I would like to use this opportunity to invite you as well.

I look forward to meeting you soon.

Best regards
