Re: a request
You have addressed the letter to Mrs XXXX - some people will say that means you are writing to your "landlady". However, "landlord" is a perfectly acceptable all-encompassing term for someone who owns a property and rents it to someone else.

I'm not sure what you meant by "when I intended to use it after I moved into the house". It is clear that you would expect a telephone in your apartment to actually work.
"Yours sincerely" is overly formal. Given the brevity of the letter, I think "Yours" is sufficient.

Reason: removed the nonsense I'd written!
