You paid a refundable deposit when you rented an apartment. You left the apartment in good condition but the landlord won’t refund the amount.
Write a letter to the landlord and

– explain why you are writing
– ask for the return of the deposit
– inform the landlord of possible legal action

Write at least 150 words
Begin your letter as follows:

Dear Mr. ………………,

Dear Mr. Thomson,

I am writing about the deposit of 250 dollars I paid you at the time of renting your flat (No 16 A, Rushmore Road) for 6 months. The agreement I signed at the time of renting the flat clearly stated that the deposit was refundable when I vacated the flat. I have already contacted you two times but could not get a satisfactory reply from you.

I wish to point out that when I vacated the flat your assistant inspected it and was fully satisfied with its condition. Since I left the flat in perfect condition, you are supposed to refund the amount to me in full and I request you to do this without any further delay.

I wish to point out that if I do not get a positive response within three days I will be forced to take legal action in the matter.

I hope we will be able to settle the matter in an amicable manner.

Yours sincerely,

You arranged to visit a friend in England but an important event at home now means that you must change the date of the visit.
Write a letter and in your letter:

– explain the important event
– apologise for the situation and
– suggest a new arrangement.

Dear ………………,

Dear Tom,

How are you, Kate and the kids? I hope you all are fine.

Tom, there has to be a change in my plan to visit you all next month. I am changing jobs and taking up a new position as regional sales manager with a major computer firm. It is a great opportunity and I have to take charge next week itself. After taking up the new post, I will be busy at least for two months as I have to visit all the branch offices.

I am very sorry we have to drop our plans. I know you have made all arrangements for my visit and they have to be cancelled now. Everything was so unexpected.

But can I suggest an alternate date? Will it be alright if I came in July? I can make myself free then and would like to make the trip if it is fine with you all. Please let me know.

Best Regards,
