Re: Payment of money for urgent repairs to [your address]
I am writing to seek reimbursement within 14 days under section 64(1) of the Residential Tenancies Act 2010 for the amount of $[amount] for repairs to [the blocked toilet at the above premises.]
I notified you of these urgent repairs on [date] and no action was taken by you [to arrange repairs to the toilet]. Under section 64(3) of the Residential Tenancies Act 2010, I can authorise repairs up to $1000 by a licensed or qualified person as I have given you reasonable notice that urgent repairs are required and you have not taken any action.
I enclose a receipt for the money I have paid to the plumber. Please repay this money within 14 days or I will be seeking orders from the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal for the reimbursement of the money owed to me.
