Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir

I am your tenant. I have been living on the 5th floor of Vatika apartment since December / for the last three months. I am writing this letter to complain to you regarding the issues caused by the resident who lives next to my home. This issue has been persisting for over a month.

To begin with, they create a lot of noise pollution. They play loud music on the music system in the afternoon and also sometimes at night. Moreover, the mixer they use to make juices and chutneys is so old that it creates very disgusting noises. These noises not only disturb me but also affect my son’s academics. He is not able to study and attend private tuitions as the sound breaks his concentration.

I have discussed the problems with my neighbor; however, they are so obstinate that they did not listen to me. Moreover, they are neither cooperative nor cordial. So, I humbly request you to pitch in personally and find a solution.

I look forward to a quick resolution.

Yours sincerely

Tanvi Arora
