A letter to your landlord, asking him to do certain repairs in the house you are occupying

Re: Window Repair in [Rental Property Address]
On [Month XX, 20XX] the child living in [Child’s Address or Unit Number] threw a baseball through my kitchen window, breaking it. I first notified you of the damage on the evening of [Month XX].
At that time, you indicated that the child’s parents were responsible for the repair costs, not you, and you suggested that I attempt to recoup the cost of repair from the child’s parents. Please recall that I disagreed with your assessment of liability.
At your insistence, I asked the child’s parents to pay for the repair of the window. My request was denied. At this point, I would request that you repair the window—at your own cost.Heat is escaping through the broken window, and the humidity level in the unit is becoming a problem.
If you don’t repair the window within the time requested, I will be forced to pay to have the window repaired and will deduct the cost of materials and labour from next month’s rent.
