    Dear friend,

    Hi, Hope you’re well. I am pleased to inform you that we have relocated to a new apartment.

    We recently moved here as we were facing a lot of issue in our old apartment like the old construction has started to fall on our heads, every day there seems to be a different problem and most difficult times was when we were infected with novel corona virus. Less number of room made it even problematic.

    Our new house is located at the outskirt of the city. The ambience here is really soothing and full of positivity, the air is cool and less polluted with a mesmerizing view of farm lands from our balcony , a glance of this exquisite view at the time of the dawn can make your day full of positive energy.

    Your are cordially invited to visit our house, we will have lunch together on upcoming weekend. We will be very happy if you and your family will join us.


    Your affectionately.

    Swarnim Dixit

    Dear Friend,

    Hope you are in best of your health. I am writing this letter to apprise you, that I have shifted to a new home last week.

    I had to take this decision of shifting to a new place, as the owner was looking forward to selling out his property. He could find one interested buyer and they underwent a deal. The owner beforehand informed me about his willingness in selling his home.

    The new home is an extremely nice place to live in. It is a small apartment for a single person with single bedroom, a kitchen and a living area. Most amazing is the balcony with a stunning view of the city . On top of these, it is a fully furnished accommodation with all the amenities in the compound.

    It has been a while since we met. I was contemplating if you could find some time and take a visit to my new flat. I will prepare your favourite biryani, that we will relish on the balcony. Looking forward to seeing you soon.

    Regards,

    Riza

In addition to that, it has commercial space which is taken by couple of IT companies.

Moreover, it has view to man-made lake from one balcony and from other magnificent garden with greenery and present on the 18<sup>th</sup> floor of tower which is open to the sky.

    Hi Ben,

    Hope you and your family are doing good. I wanted to inform you that I have recently shifted to a newly purchased apartment in Central Mumbai and wanted to invite you and your family to come over for dinner to celebrate this occasion.

    There were a couple of reasons for me to make a shift from the old house to the new one. Firstly, it was situated on the outskirts of the city making it difficult to travel to office which was around 50 minutes’ drive. Secondly, my family is growing, hence we needed extra space. Finally, as parents are ageing, they would require access to modern facilities like Yoga room, meditation room which the new society offers.

    The flat is situated at the center of Chembur, Mumbai and is part of a housing colony named “Ambassador”. It is a 3-BHK property situated on 31<sup>st</sup> floor and has a mesmerizing balcony view. The flat is completely furnished and is not only equipped with modern housing facilities like automatic parking, Alexa controlled appliances but also has fitness services like a world class swimming pool and state of the art sports facility.

    It has been long that we haven’t spent some time together over dinner. Looking forward to meet you and your family this coming weekend.

    Yours lovingly,

    Richard Thomas

    Dear John,

    I hope you are doing well and back from the official visit of London location. I would like to invite you for a dinner party at my new residence on next Saturday at 1 Lincoln Street.

    Since, I have been leaving in a suburban area, there are so many problems I faced while commuting to Office. Moreover, other places such as markets and amusement parks are far from my current location. The availability of public transport is also minimal, consequently I arrived at office late and sometimes even missed the school’s bus for my child. Further the unavailability of children’s park is also a reason behind the decision.

    The new house has 1560 Sq/ft area with all amenities which includes spacious balcony and a utility area. It has 3 bedrooms and 1 big hall. The location is very appropriate for all my family members. The schools and the colleges are just 15-mins by walk and the office is 30 mins. However, the house is inside the closed community which is administrated by registered association.

    Well, let me finish here. I am eagerly waiting for your presence and adds values in the party.

    Yours always,

    Tauseef

    Dear Friend,

    I hope you are doing great, the main agenda to write this letter is I was relocated and shifted to a new house which is located in the same city in the downtown.

    A couple of days back I saw a news in the newspaper saying that a new Bangla which is located in the downtown and filling with students and they are two more rooms have to occupy. I personally visited the house and I am amiable after seeing it so I decided to relocate.

    On top of that, the room is fully furnished and there is a sumptuous couch and matrix. Also, the room consists of a balcony where we can see scenic views and we can feel relaxed.

    Moreover, it is just a 5-minute walk to reach my office so in the morning I can get a few more minutes to dress up. I am pretty much fascinated by the lounge where we can sit and spend our time with nature.

    From the first day I was missing your presence. If you have any free time and you are wondering to visit any new place you can plan to come here. It would be grateful if you would planning for this weekend to visit my new house.

    I looking forward to hearing from you.

    Many thanks,

    Vineeth J.

      Sentence structure used is very basic , need to include complex, compound.

      and Vocabulary , you need to use some less common words and try to avoid repetition of words.

    Dear Paras,

    I am writing this letter to let you know that I and my family have moved to a big house in Bangalore. I just could not go on living in Bangalore all by myself in a single-bedroom flat.

    Finally, I have convinced my family to move in with me to Bangalore as I work here. The new house is located in Koramangala near my office, which is a big relief for me as it reduces my stress of travelling from outside the city. My parents are happy because there is more space in the living room, 3 bedrooms, a big balcony and a garden outside. But, my wife is the happiest of all because she doesn’t need to do much decorating as it has been done by previous owners.

    If you could find some time, why don’t you and your wife come over this weekend? We would all love to see you, and if the weather is good, we can have dinner together in our garden. I’m looking forward to seeing you soon.

    Lots of love

    Balaram

    Hello Shobha,

    Hope you are doing well. I am writing this letter in order to update you that we have recently relocated to new accommodation in Mulund.

    I have changed my home because my old building had no amenities. As you know it had no lift service and my parents are growing old, it had become difficult for them to ascend and descend regularly.

    Hence, we decided to shift to new Wadhva building in Mulund. It is a 40 storey tower and we live at 21st floor. The flat is 3 BHK and was available fully furnished. It has a balcony attached to the living room which has delightful view of Airoli creek. The society has all the facilities that we wished to have such as multiple lifts, park, swimming pool, gym and parking. Furthermore, it includes Jain temple within the premises which my mother visits everyday.

    I insist you to come over with your family for a day. Please do preinform so that we can plan a brunch together. Post lunch we can take our kids to park or pool and have gala time.

    See you soon,

    Tisha Amin

    Hello Ram,

    I am writing this letter to cordially invite you to come and visit my newly shifted house.

    Firstly, my previous house was very close to main road. I witnessed the sudden increase of vehicles movement in that road since it became the main route for many government offices and companies. So my family started suffering from a lot of air and noise pollution throughout the day. It affected the health of my children and elderly parents. Despite, it’s close proximity to all important places, I moved out of that house.

    During my house hunt, I found this new house through a broker. It appealed so nice to me when I visited this house that it met all my expectations in terms of basic amenities and the space it provides. It is a duplex house which has 4 rooms, so it accommodate my joint family. It has bigger backyard and this house is in community which has all basic amenities to spend our leisure time like sports ground, play courts and parks.

    Its been 2 weeks since I’ve moved here. Please visit my house whenever you are free. We can have great time here during weekends.

    Warm regards,

    Vigneshwar.
