I've come to see the flat.
My name is Mark Adams.
We spoke on the phone on Wednesday.
Hi, Mark, come on up.
I'll buzz you in.
Green door on the second floor on the right side.
Nice to meet you.
I spoke to all your references and they all checked out okay.
So let me show you around.
The place actually belongs to my mother.
But her health isn't great.
So we finally managed to persuade her to move in with us and rent this old place out.
It's a great size.
Plenty of space.
I think it's a winner for us.
Yes, all the appliances are brand-new.
There's a washing machine and a tumble dryer in the utility room next to the kitchen.
Lots of closet space too, which is fabulous.
My wife has a ridiculous number of shoes.
Now the big question, what about noise and the neighbours?
Well, all the neighbours are elderly, so no noisy kids.
And the back of the house overlooks a clear and peaceful pond.
So it's perfect if tranquility is what you are looking for.
That's good news.
We've been living in a less than glamorous part of Aberdeen, constantly harassed day and night by noisy neighbours.
Getting to work was a nightmare too, as we only have one car and my wife has to use it as she works nights at the hospital.
Well, if you like the place, it's yours as soon as I get a contract drawn up with a solicitor.
The first month's rent and a deposit are mandatory on signing the contract.
Then we can work out when is the best day for you to pay rent each month.
We'll be incredibly happy to be your new tenants.
Thank you so much.
My wife will be thrilled to get out of the shabby place we are now in and start filling those wardrobes with all those shoes.
