Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sam,

My name is Edwin and I recently shifted / moved to flat number 14 of Sunrise Building.

I am writing this letter in response to your complaint about the sound which is coming from my flat. Since we shifted / moved to this new flat just last week, our renovation work is still going on.

As the wash room tiles were in poor condition, we were forced to replace those damaged ones. Plumbers were not coming regularly and that is why it got delayed this much. I sincerely apologize for those loud sounds of banging and hitting coming from our flat. I know that this noise is really creating an annoyance, mainly for those who are staying downstairs and especially for the elderly residents as well as the infants.

However, I hope that it would be possible to wind up this work by the end of this week and I will ask the workers to shut down all the ventilators and doors to minimise the effect of the hammering sound. Once again, I am taking this opportunity to request you to kindly bear with us for this week and I would try my level best to avoid further disturbances coming from my residence.

Thank you for your understanding.

Yours sincerely

Edwin Thomas
