Re: Repairs to [your address]
As previously advised on [date], the following repairs are required at the above premises:
- [The handle on the master bedroom door is faulty and needs to be replaced.]
- [The tap in the bathroom needs a washer replaced.]
- [The window in the front bedroom is cracked and the glass needs replacing.]
To date no action has been taken. Please arrange for the necessary work to be done within the next week.
If these problems are not satisfactorily attended to within this time, I will be applying to the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal for orders to rectify this situation.
If any of these matters are the responsibility of the owner’s corporation, I ask that you forward my letter to it or the strata managing agent for their prompt attention. [Delete this paragraph if premises are not part of a strata scheme.]
Please contact me on [phone number] during work hours to arrange a convenient time for the repairs to be done.
