You and your family are living in rented accommodation in an English speaking country. You are not satisfied with the condition of some of the furniture. Write a letter to the landlord. In your letter • introduce yourself • explain what is wrong with the furniture • say what action you would like the landlord to take

Dear Mr Mathew, I am your tenant from Flat 3 on Riverside Street. We met each other when I signed the rental agreement in your office. I have lived here for 6 months now and I am writing to complain about some of the furniture. As you may remember, the dining table is in very poor condition and has uneven legs. It
also
does not match the dining chairs as these are too low to be comfortable for a table of that height. When I
first
pointed
this
out to you, you agreed to provide a brand new dining set.
However
, you have not done so and I would really like to resolve
this
matter as soon as possible. If it is more convenient for you, perhaps you could simply replace the table by finding one of a suitable height for the chairs.
This
would solve the problems without too much cost, so I hope you agree to
this
proposed solution

Replace the punctuation
