Re: Window Repair in [Rental Property Address]
On [date of prior letter] I notified you that if you failed to repair the broken window in [Rental Property Address], I would arrange for the repairs to be made and seek reimbursement for the cost. As you ignored my request, I had the repair made on [Date of Repair].
Enclosed is a copy of the invoice for the repairs, in the amount of [Repair Amount]. I will deduct [Repair Amount] from my next rent payment.
