IELTS speaking part 3 style questions

Examiner: In your country is it more common to rent or buy a house?

Sergi: I actually just watched a TV show on this topic recently. Over the past twenty years, there has been a surge in property prices, fuelled by relaxation in the rules surrounding mortgages and loans. This has resulted in a boom in the housing market. Many young professionals are taking the opportunity to get on the property ladder but for the average person, many years of renting is needed to save enough for a deposit. 

Examiner: Many landlords are known to take advantage of their tenants. What can be done to control this?

Raoul: It is well known that in many urban areas, which are overcrowded and where current accommodation is in very short supply for university students, that unscrupulous landlords charge excessive rents and demand large deposits which they are unlikely to return in full. In addition, accommodation might be unsafe. It is essential that improved legal protection be provided for flat tenants with all contracts in writing, as most people are unaware of their rights, and this might give leaseholders more confidence and security in the future and a more positive renting experience.

Examiner: It is preferable for families to live in central districts or in the suburbs?

Alline: The trend for parents with young children to relocate from a metropolis apartment to more suburban areas with less concrete walls and a more park friendly environment is widespread in many countries. On the other hand, it also depends on which neighbourhood you want to live in but the city centres have become too expensive for normal, middle-income families or people to live there. Outside the centre, there are the new hipster neighbourhoods, where many creative or entrepreneurs and artists live in a city-style apartments. You may see a lot of electric cars, but there can be a shortage of family-sized homes.
