I'm using these constructions without any confidence. I don't know wheater they are correct or not, in case where I try to build up the whole sentence with them.

These constructions are:

  1. There would be

  2. There will be

  3. There might be

I've just used them in these sentences below:

  1. There would be a big house in this city if we had money.

  2. There would be a problem to go abroad for employment without qualification.

  3. There will be a biggest statue on the middle of this city.

  4. There might be a poisonous snack in this forest.

Is it the correct way to use these constructions in the context of the whole sentence?

Should I use them in a different way?

Would/Will/Might

  1. There would be

Is used after an assumption, like you did in your first sentence. Under these circumstances, there would be XXX. If the circumstances are met, then the event in the second clause would happen for sure.

  1. There will be might be

Isn't grammatically correct in the slightest. I guess you meant There will be alone, which simply is the future of there is, to describe something in the future.

  1. There might be

Is an incertitude. You basically convey the fact that you're not sure about something. Can, Could and Must cant also be used for that, with different degrees of intensity. Please see: Can/Could/May/Might/Must.

About your sentences

  1. and 4 are indubitably correct usages of would and might. Same for 3., correct use of will, if you're pretty sure (or convinced) the statue will be there (but it's just big, not biggest, and in the middle).

  2. puzzles me. I would have said There might be a problem to go abroad [...], but I could see would being used as meaning:

If you went abroad for employment without qualification, there would be a problem.
