To Whom it May Concern:
My name is _________. I am a resident of the Spanish Wells Apartments, # ____. I am writing to provide one final request for necessary repairs in my apartment, as well as to provide formal notice that I intend to terminate my lease - without penalty - if said repairs are not made within 10 days following the date of this letter.
I have made several requests for repairs of my dishwasher and garbage disposal. I have made these requests in writing (or via email) on _______, _______, and ______, as well as by phone on ______ and _____. I have spoken with ________ about the need for these repairs.
Specifically, my dishwasher and garbage disposal have been leaking dirty water onto the floor of my kitchen for several weeks. In addition to the inconvenience this continues to cause, it has begun to cause a more serious problem - mold. There is now a fowl smell in the area of the leak that does not go away no matter how much I clean and sanitize. This leads me to believe that, as a result of the leak, mold or some other contamination is beginning to grow in, under and around the area. I cannot tolerate the odor this causes, and it is causing me to fear for my health.
Therefore, I am once again and for the last time requesting that you make the necessary repairs so that I can continue living here without suffering the leaks and the odor and without fearing for my health. Accordingly, I request that you make the necessary repairs within 10 days following the date of this letter.
Please be advised that I shall consider any failure to respond as a breach of not only the terms of the lease agreement, but also a breach of the implied warranty of habitability, according to which you are required to provide me with, among other things, a premises that is free of dangers such as that which is growing in my kitchen. Any such breach will entitle me to terminate the lease without penalty. Therefore, please be advised that, should you fail to make the necessary repairs within 10 days, I will terminate my lease and you will not be entitled to any early termination penalty.
Some final points coming up....
