Transcript

A: Hello, Accommodation Office.
B: Oh, hello. Is that University Accommodation Office?
A: Yes, that’s right. How can I help you?
B: Oh, I’m calling to … I’d like to rent a house, and I hope you can help me.
A: No problem. May I have your student number, please?
B: 0345814 (Q1).

A: And your name?
B: Peter Gilmore (Q2). G-I-L-M-O-R-E, Gilmore.
A: Yes, Mr. Gilmore. What sort of thing were you looking for?
B: Three-bedroomed house with a garden.
A: Well … Mr. Gilmore, I’m afraid there’s a little problem. As you know, our clients are mainly university students, so most of the cases we’ve dealt with are bed-sit or single bedroom
B: Well …
A: Don’t worry. I will try my best to help you. Let me check… Oh, you’re lucky. We do have several houses as you described, but they’re mainly in … in the south suburbs.
B: Oh well … I don’t think that’s a problem. I can do with that.
A: Right … yes. What sort of price were you thinking of?
B: Well … could you give me some idea?
A: Certainly. It really ranges from 350 pounds (Q3) to … Well, it depends.
B: Only 350 pounds?
A: Yes, to bout 600 pounds (Q4) depending on the areas, decorations, furniture, and things like that.
B: And the garden?
A: Yes, the garden (Q5). That obviously pushes up the price.
B: Right … well, as I said, we’d want a garden. I think about 450 pounds a month would be our limit.
A: OK. Well … would you like to have a look at a couple of properties, sir?
B: Yes, that’d be great.
A: Looking at our files … I think there are three that might suit you.
B: Hang on. I’ll just get a pen. Right.
A: OK. Well, we’ve got one on Lakeside Road which is 415 pounds (Q6) per month.
B: Right.
A: And the second house is in North Woods Road.
B: Right. And how much is that one?
A: That’s 460 pounds.
B: Are the bills included?
A: Well, the first one includes the water bill (Q7), and the second includes the telephone rental. 

B: Um, that’s not too bad then. So …
A: So, when would you be available to see them?
B: Well, I have an exam on campus this week on Wednesday. After that, Wednesday afternoon, is that OK?
A: I’m sorry we don’t have any availability for Wednesday. How about Thursday (Q8) morning?
B: OK. That’s fine. Would 10:00 be OK?
A: Yes, fine. Ten a.m. it is. Just come to the Accommodation Office.
B: OK. Oh, by the way, need I bring anything … say … my passport with me?
A: Yes, you should show us your student card and your passport.
B: No problem.
A: And the most important thing, a letter (Q9) from your bank.
B: Yes, that’s OK.
A: Great, and once you decided to take the house, we would need you to give a week’s (Q10) notice of moving in.
B: Right … a week’s notice. And do you require a deposit?
A: Yes, we do. That’s one month’s rent.
B: OK. One month. Is that all?
A: No, sorry, one more … you have to pay for the contract.
B: Oh yes, I’ve forgotten about that. How much is that?
A: Half month’s rent.
B: OK. Then, thank you for your help. See you then.
A: Goodbye.
