WOMAN: Good morning. How can I help you?
MAN: Hello. I'm interested in renting a house somewhere in the town.
WOMAN: Right. Could I have your name please?
MAN: Yes, it's Steven Godfrey.
WOMAN: And tell me how many bedrooms you're looking for.
MAN: Well, we'd need four(Example), because I'm going to share the house with three friends.
WOMAN: Okay, there are several of that size on our books. They mostly belong to families who are working abroad at the moment. What about the location?
MAN: It'd be nice to be central(Q1).
WOMAN: That might be difficult, as most houses of that size are in the suburbs. Still, there are a few. What's your upper limit for the rent?
MAN: We'd like something around ￡500 a month, but we could go up to ￡600(Q2) if we have to. But we can't go beyond that.
WOMAN: Do you know how long you want to rent the house for? The minimum let is six months, as you probably realise.
MAN: We're at college here for two years(Q3), and we don't want to have to move during that time if we can avoid it.
WOMAN: Right. And how soon do you want to move in? All our lets start on the first of the month.
MAN: Well, as soon as possible, really, so that means September 1st
