About Our Contract

Although a regular tenant contract is to be formed, the following amendments are made in accordance with the nature of our tenancy.
The actual contract will be written in Japanese, interpreted with Japanese laws under the jurisdiction of Japanese court. English translation of the contract will be given merely as a guidance.
Please note that your action will not be effective until it reaches to the party of interest under the Japanese contract interpretation, unless statutes regulate otherwise.

Our contract term starts from the 1st day of month, ends at the last day of month.
The minimum contract term is 3 months.
Your rent needs to be paid into our account monthly by the 1st day of previous month.
Your written notification for terminating tenancy has to be sent 2 months in advance.
The rent cannot be divided by days.
No refund is available.

Regardless of the actual bill term, electricity bill charged on the month needs to be paid by tenants of the month.
The payment for electricity is to be divided equally by heads, regardless of the proportion of individual usage.

No cleaner nor caretaker is provided, so that communal fucilities need to be maintained by tenants themselves.
Our tenants hold a right to unanimous veto (except the evicting subject) against the one who fails to comply with the residential sharing community.
Do not take guests or visitors into dormitories.

If you have used our futon set, wash it before the end of your tenancy or pay a futon cleaning charge.
