I’ve found a very interesting advertisement in a newspaper. Have a look at it: Three bedroom ­semi-detached house with gas central heating & double glazing. Entrance hall with laminate flooring. Lounge with bay window, feature fireplace & cable TV point. Separate dining room with patio doors to rear courtyard. Fully fitted kitchen with built in electric double oven & fridge freezer. Bathroom with bath, basin, W.C. & electric shower. £ 525 per month. Available now. If you get promoted next month, we’ll rent it!

Dear Mary,
I’m going to rent a flat but you know I don’t earn much and I have to share the cost with somebody. Would you like to be my flatmate? I’ve already seen a nice two bedroom flat in Lexington. I know you are looking round for a flat and this offer is really interesting. The landlord told me we wouldn’t have to pay in advance and the rent is only £ 250 per month. It is a furnished flat with cooking facilities, an ample storage and a modern bathroom. Besides, it’s ideally placed for the access to the city. Think about it, please!
