How to Inform Your Landlord that You Have a Leaking Roof

Leaking roofs are one of the many challenges that landlords have to deal with during the rainy season. For tenants it could be disastrous when it becomes severe, the best approach to informing your landlord to fix a roof is by writing a letter to buttress the effect the leaking roof has had on you.

If you need your landlord to attend to the roof challenges and solve them, you will need to write a proper letter to that effect. The way and manners by which you write to your landlord determines how fast your landlord will act. Your letter has to be a straightforward one to make the point known without beating around the bush. You should express yourself humbly while making your demands.

Dear Sir,
ROOF REPAIRS: YOUR PROPERTY AT No. 56, RANGERS CLOSE, GARKI, ABUJA
I write to inform you that the roof of the above-mentioned property where I presently occupy is in a terrible state of repairs. The roof leaks profusely each time it rains. I have had to put containers on almost all corners of my apartment just so that the dripping rainwater does not fall on my documents and equipment.
Please send in your workmen to expedite the repair work immediately so I can have my peace.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Sir,
LEAKING ROOF OF PROPERTY AT No. 56, RANGERS CLOSE, GARKI, ABUJA
We recently noticed that our roof is leaking after the last heavy downpour. Unfortunately, rainwater already damaged some of our properties before we could realize the extent of leakage particularly in the store and master bedroom which drops straight on our furniture. At the time of writing this letter, we have moved our belongings from the master bedroom to the children’s room to enable us to mop the wet floors and dry-soaked mattress.
This matter requires your urgent intervention to enable us to sleep with our two eyes closed whenever it rains.
Kindly invite your roofer to attend to this issue as soon as possible.

Yours faithfully,

Tenant name.

The above-mentioned property which I occupy has a serious roof leakage, Each time it rains my family and I find it very inconvenient having to stay up at night due to the heavy water drops from the leaked roof. We hardly have to use our bed as the mattress gets soaked every time rain falls. We are unhappy about this happening because we just renewed our rent.
We urge you to graciously bring your roofer to fix our roof immediately to avoid further destruction of my properties. I look forward to your quick response to this matter.

Yours faithfully,

Tenant’s name.
