rental conditions

need a guarantor

When you make a rental contract in Japan, you need a guarantor but it is difficult for international students.
Some apartments recommended by NBU do not need a guarantor, so if you have trouble finding an apartment, please contact the international affairs office.
At some real estate agents, if you pay guarantee fee 12,000 yen per 4 years, you can rent an apartment without a guarantor. However, minors (under 20 years old) can not use this system so you should be careful when you find one at real estate agents.

take out an insurance policy

When you make a rental contract, you must take out an insurance policy in case of fire, leak and so on. You will pay insurance premium at the procedure of a rental contract.

 

Example : This insurance costs about 10,000 yen per year.

duration of the contract

A rental contract generally continues one or two years, depends on apartments. After that, it continues automatically if there are no conditions.
