Lease term

Leasing Conditions

Most properties are leased out in good decorative condition, furnished, and often but not always provided with appliances which may include cookers, refrigerators, washing machines,and air-conditioners, but excluding soft furnishings such as carpets and quilt. Except for serviced apartments, there are far fewer furnished apartments available, and these few are usually smaller units with only one or two bedrooms.

Air-conditioners are essential for comfortable living during the summer months and, if not provided by the Landlord, will need to be installed by the tenant.

There are also serviced apartments available offering good to excellent facilities for short lease periods of three months or longer. The rentals for these units are comparatively higher. Most have one or two bedrooms units are available.



Rentals are usually in Renminbi payable monthly in advance and, except for serviced apartments, are usually exclusive of monthly management fees and Government rates, for which an additional 10% to 15% of the rent should be budgeted.



These are usually equivalent to one or two, occasionally three, months' rental and are payable to the landlord when an offer to lease is accepted. Once the Lease Agreement is signed, the deposit is held by the Landlord without interest, and refunded to the tenant upon expiration of the lease. The cost of any damage or reinstatement work necessary to the apartment, other than fair wear and tear, will be deducted from the deposit before repayment.
