|Understanding Your Lease Agreement|
For most expatriate-grade properties the lease agreement will be drafted in Japanese and English, with the Japanese version controlling. You should familiarize yourself with the following lease terms:
Rent （賃料 Chin-ryo）
Paid monthly in advance to the owner. A late fee may be exacted if rent is overdue.
Payment of first and next month’s rent is generally required upon initation of the lease.
Deposit （敷金 Shiki-kin）
All properties in Japan require a deposit. The size of the deposit may vary from two-months rent to four to six months for expatriate grade properties. The deposit is “technically” refundable. In most cases, a portion of the deposit is deducted to pay for restoration of the property when the tenant leaves. Restoration costs can be greatly miminized by careful maintenance of the property.
Key Money （礼金 Rei-kin）
Sometimes called “thank you” money. A sum generally equivalent to two-month’s rent and paid to the owner at the initation of the lease. It is not refundable.
Agent Fee / Commission （仲介料 Cyukai-ryo,仲介手数料）
Industry standard provides for one-month’s rent to be paid to the real estate agent as commission.
Maintenance Fee （管理費Kanri-hi, Manegement fee）
A monthly fee for general building maintenance and, possibly to defer the cost of an on-site building manager.
Renewal fee （更新料 Koshin-ryo）
Money to be paid to the owner when you would renew the lease contract on expiration of the lease term of usually two years. The amount is in most cases equivalent to one month’s rent.
