[Name of Recipient][Title][Company Name][Street Address][City, State  ZIP Code]Dear [Name of Recipient]:I am writing to advise you about a number of items in the apartment that are either broken or barely working, all of which are in need of repair:  [Here itemize, i.e., kitchen faucet is leaking, wall heater not functioning properly, wooden wall shelves loose].

As you know, the winter is approaching, and I would greatly appreciate it if you would arrange to have these repairs done as soon as possible.  If I can possibly manage it, I would like to be here whenever the [plumber, carpenter, gas company representative] comes --  I believe that would be to our mutual benefit, so I would appreciate your letting me know in advance of any planned visit.
