Band 7 IELTS letter sample

Dear Mrs. Paul,

I am writing to let you know that I am moving home and I do not have enough words to express my gratitude to you for being such a helpful neighbor.

As you know, I was looking for a new house near my workplace. Luckily, I got one house just close to my office and with modern facilities. I am really thrilled to share this news with you but at the same time I am feeling blue. I will really miss you. I cannot thank you enough for being such a massive source of support for me during the Covid times. You helped me to overcome my homesickness and took good care of me like I was your daughter. It is really a blessing to have a neighbour like you.  

When I move, I will miss the evenings we used to spend together in the society garden. I really loved those moments in the midst of trees and flowers. I always felt rejuvenated after spending some time in the garden. Also, our swimming pool was my go-to-place. Water always made me calmer. Sadly in my new society, there is neither a swimming pool nor a garden like this.

I will be shifting to the new home next weekend and I am going to throw a housewarming party on the first Sunday of next month. I would very much appreciate it if you could join me at the party.

See you soon,

Best regards
