Dear __________________________,

I have the following problems in my apartment that need to be taken care of:





This problem constitutes a violation of the residential lease agreement or is

required under a law, administrative rule, or local ordinance or regulation. Therefore, I
am requesting that you remedy this problem within 14 days. If the problem is not fixed
within 14 days, I will exercise my legal rights and get the repair done on my own and
deduct the cost from my rent. I will provide paid receipts to you along with my reduced
rent, and the deduction will not exceed the lesser of $500 or one-half of the monthly

Thank you.
