Indeed, the vicinity of the airport causes us tremendous unrest, and plans of expand of the airport will make our lives unbearable.

The reasons are following:
1. The real estate value will decrease considerably.

3. You have recently moved into a new flat. Unfortunately you lost some money the other day. And you cannot afford to pay next month’s rent when it is due. Write a latter to the landlord explaining the situation and that you will pay as soon as your parents send you the money. Also, mention that there are some problems with the flat.

Dear Mr….

Please be advised that I cannot afford to pay next month’s rent when it is due. Unfortunately, I lost considerable amount of money the other day. And the money I have left is enough only to buying the food for about a month, so I have no chance but to wait until my parents send me the money. They always send me money in beginning of the month, so I could pay you as soon as I have it.

I am using this opportunity, to inform you about some problems with a flat. Firstly, there are termites in the kitchen and it is necessary to invite the debugging service, as soon as possible. Secondly, the tap in the bathroom have been leaking already two weeks. So I have to overpay the water billing. The last problem is, that somebody stole mat from entry door.

I would appreciate if you would extend the rent payment till the beginning of the next month. Also please take the necessary steps to improve the problems I mentioned

Thank you very much for your understanding.

Yours truly,
