Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am Saurbah Tiwari, an IT professional from Pune, India. I am writing this letter to enquire for rented accommodation in the city of Sydney for my family of 5 members.

My wife works for an IT firm, and will continue to work for the same company in Sydney as well. We have a daughter who is six years old and looking forward to join primary school over there. Also, my parents also live with me who are retired, but fit enough.

Looking at our family, a three bedroom apartment is preferable. I expect a well-equipped kitchen as my wife is an excellent chef and likes to give a try to variety of cuisines on weekends. Additionally, at least one reserved car park is essential as my company is offering me a car.

As far as transportation of other family members is concerned, we will be very happy nearby metro station and market as my wife can travel without hassle. Keeping my young one and parents in mind an accommodation in quiet suburban area nearby a primary school will be a great idea, as we need not worry about their safety.

In the context, may I request you to search for suitable accommodation? I would appreciate an early response.

Yours sincerely,

Saurabh Tiwari
