Repair Notice to Landlord


I hope this letter finds you well. I am writing this letter to bring your attention to some grave concerns about repairing of your house. As you know I have been living in your house for three years now from 2nd May 20xx till today, I have proved myself a good tenant as I have never missed a single rent. Also, my payments are never delayed. I would have never written to you but it’s been 5 months when you visited the house and we last spoke about the urgent repairs of the house and you promised to look into the matter.

Unfortunately, till today I have not heard from you on this matter. With due respect, your house is an old built, made 17 years ago and need some urgent repairing. There are a few structural issues and plumbing issues too. The ceiling of my bedroom is leaking because of the washroom upstairs. The drainage system is not working properly as the main holes of the house are clogged. The condition of the laundry is bad. The paint came off a long time ago and now the bricks and cement are visible which gives not only a shabby look to the house but also the house looks haunted. Moreover, the tile of the washroom is broken ever since I rented your apartment.

I have shown you the state of the house personally and you promised to get it all repair but till now it has proven to be a false hope. I request you kindly, look into this matter immediately as the ceiling of the bedroom is creating trouble for me. Also, your building is in a ruining condition.

Kindly let me know when these repairs will be done. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thanking you in advance for your cooperation.

Warm Regards,

I hope you are in sound health, as you know I have been in your house for [X] years now and proved to be a good tenant. As per our agreement for the rent you agreed to all the major and minor repairs of the house including a whitewash every two years. Well, I think it’s high time to get the job done.

 Usually, I do the minor repairs myself but it’s been four years, and not even once the house is repainted. It is in a need of an urgent whitewash. Moreover, the wooden doors are not closing properly as the threshold is broken and the sub-frame of the door is attacked by termites.

Moreover, the commode of the bathroom needs to be changed as it is broken and the water tank is not working at all. The drainage hole of the washroom has no cover and often insects as earthworms and cockroaches visit me in the washroom. Some of the insects are poisonous too. Once I have seen a snake too, though I killed it, the situation could have been life-threatening. I have brought this matter to attention several times but all in vain. I have also attached copies of previous reminders with this letter to reinforce my point.

Kindly let me know when can the repairs be done or I will get it all repair myself and the amount will be deducted from the amount of the rent. However, I will deduct the amount in installments. I rather suggest planning a visit to meet and discuss things at your place or mine to discuss things further. Please give me a call on my number [x]. If you will not take a notice of the matter mentioned above, I will get it done myself as it is my legal right too.

I request you kindly look into this matter. I eagerly wait to hear from you soon. Thank you for your understanding and patience. 

Kind Regards,
