情景对话

Heather: Hi, are you the apartment manager? I saw the vacancy sign outside and I’m looking for an apartment.

Sam: Yes, I’m Sam. We have one unit available right now. When are you looking to move in?

Heather: The lease on my apartment is up soon, so I’d like to move in the first of the month.

Sam: Okay, follow me and let me show you the unit. Each unit gets one parking space in the garage, and there are laundry facilities on the first floor. The landlord pays for the gas, but the tenant pays for all other utilities. Here’s the unit. Take a look around.

Heather: Oh, this is nice. Is this a furnished unit?

Sam: It can be furnished or unfurnished, your choice. Since it’s an end unit, there’s only one common wall.

Heather: This apartment is exactly what I’m looking for. How much is the rent?

Sam: It’s $900 a month and we require a 12- month lease. To move in, you’ll need to have the first and last month’s rent, plus a security deposit.

Heather: How much is the security deposit?

Sam: It’s $450.

Heather: Okay, I’ll think it over and get back to you. Thanks for your time.

Sam: These units go fast, so if you’re interested, I suggest that you jump on it.

Heather: Thanks, I’ll keep that in mind.

Heather: 你好,你是公寓管理员吗?我看见外面说有房子出租,我正在寻找一间公寓。

Sam: 是的,我叫Sam。现在有个小单元出租,你想什么时候搬进来?

Heather: 我的租约很快就到期了,我想在月初的时候搬进来。

Sam: 好吧,跟着我,我给你看下那个单元。每个单元在车库中有一个停车位,一楼有洗衣设施。房东付煤气费,租户承担其他公用设施的费用。这就是那个单间,看下吧。

Heather: 很漂亮。这个单元有家具吗?

Sam: 每月900美元,签1年的合同。住进的时候,你需要交第一个月和最后一个月的租金,另加保证金。

Heather: 保证金多少钱?
