You Live In A House Opposite Some Very Inconsiderate Neighbours | Band 7 IELTS Letter Sample

You live in a house opposite some very inconsiderate neighbours. They are making life difficult for you and other people living in the street. You have spoken to them about their behaviour but nothing has changed. You want the council to take some action.

Write a letter to the local council. In your letter:

  • explain the problem
  • describe what these neigbbours are doing.
  • say what you (and your neighbours) want the council to do

Band 7 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir,

My name is Vineet Kaushal. I am a resident of New Town County. I am writing to complain about the parking problem and noise pollution causing by some of our neighbours. Firstly, the residents of flat no-13 and 16 do not park their car on their designated parking areas and this is causing traffic congestion on the main street. Secondly, they play loud music at night and it has made our lives difficult because we cannot sleep well.

My neighbours and I have requested these flat owners to park their cars properly and do not play loud music to disturb others; however, they are not bothered about these issues and still troubling the entire neighbourhood.

Therefore, we all would request you to take strict actions against these residents because they are causing inconvenience to others. I hope you will seriously look into our complaint and take necessary steps.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Vineet Kaushal
