One of a common rule you better know of renting an apartment in Tokyo – is about the ‘guarantor’, ‘guarantee company’ issue!
When you sign a rental contract in Japan, you need to have a guarantor for your co-signer.
If a personal guarantor, he/she has to be your family, has enough income and usually a Japanese citizen.
The guarantee company is a company that would be responsible to your rent fee payment in behalf of your guarantor.
The fee will be paid at the first time when you sign the contract(usually half a month rent or more), and renewal fee will be around 10,000yen or more per year.
There are numbers of guarantee company in Japan, though which company to use depends on the owner.
Some of the guarantee company require you to have an additional personal guarantor.(I know… what!?😂)
We will of course help you do the process of scanning process, such as paperwork or any other process you need to take.
To avoid any inconvenience, we will check out with the owner which guarantee company they are using before viewing the properties.
