Model Answer:

Dear Sir,

I am writing to request some help in finding accommodation in Singapore. I recently got transferred to Singapore and would soon be starting my work at Changi.

As you know that I am completely new to Singapore, I need your help in finding a suitable accommodation which is close to my office. Mainly, I would prefer to stay in a condominium which has all the facilities like gym, swimming pool, etc.

I also prefer to stay in a locality which is well connected with public transport like buses, trains, etc. Besides, it would be great if the apartment is close to facilities like hospitals, vegetable market, and so on.

Moreover, as my family is going to accompany me in Singapore along with my four year old child, I wanted to stay close to a nursery. Kindly consider my requirements and help me in finding a suitable accommodation.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours faithfully,
