I am very glad to inform you that I am moving to your city Mumbai for work. It is a great honor for me to receive this job opportunity in such a big city like Mumbai.
As I do not know the city, well it will be my first time visiting that place, I would request you to please lend me your support in finding an accommodation in Mumbai. It would be very convenient for me If I can get a place in the close vicinity to my office which is in Meera Road. I am looking for one-bedroom flat as I will be staying alone there, so renting a big apartment is not required. keeping the safety and security in mind, I would love to have a place in a nice complex where other people with families or maybe even bachelorettes are living. Of course, a very important thing which needs to be taken care of is that the rent should be within my budget. As I will not be able to afford paying high rent now.
I would really appreciate if you can help me do all these as you are the person I can rely on. Looking forward to your response.
Thanks & Regards,
