    • Dear Sir or Madam,
    • I am writing to complain about the horrible
    • conditions of the flat we rented from you in January.
    • To start with, every week the electricity goes off,
    • and we have to change a blown fuse. It’s very
    • dangerous! The electrical wiring ... is terrible! Also, the boiler is broken so we don’t have any central heating or hot water! The insulation in this house is bad so we
    • lose a lot of heat, especially through the windows.
    • There is really  low water pressure., so you never get a very good shower. Last week, the sink was full of water because of a blocked drain.  Last winter, our neighbours upstairs had a burst water pipe because the water froze. Then, we had a leak on our ceiling.
    • If you cannot fix these problems before the end of this month, we will have to break our contract.

    • Thank you for your attention.
    • Kind regards,
    • Sarah Brown
