    If I had a place to sleep here, my apartment will be free.

    Watching a sitcom and one of the characters says -

    "If I had a place to sleep here, my apartment will be free." - Is this correct? OR should will be would.

    Re: If I had a place to sleep here, my apartment will be free.

    Grammatically, it should be "would". However, don't rely on TV shows or films for perfect English.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
