This is a sample letter to tell your landlord that your place does not have an “essential service” and that, because of this, there is an immediate and serious threat to your health or safety (or the health and safety of others in the rental unit). In this letter you are telling the landlord that you will move out if the problem is not fixed in 48 hours. See the Question 'What can I do if my landlord fails to provide an “essential service?' in the resource 'Getting the Landlord to Make Repairs' on this site for more information.
Dear [landlord’s name]:
As I have told you, there is a serious problem with my rental unit. [Describe the lack of the essential service.]
Because of this problem, there is a serious and immediate threat to my health, safety, and/or property.
The law says that if you do not provide me with an essential service like [fill in the service that is lacking] and if this presents an “imminent and serious threat to the health or safety of the tenant or the tenant’s property” that I can move out if the problem is not fixed within 48 hours.
This letter is notice that I will move out and terminate the rental agreement if the problem described above is not fixed by [date and time—48 hours from the time you deliver the letter].
