(IV) When should I start rental search?

For those who have not yet come to Japan, most of them choose to get a place before coming to Japan. So they could go to sign the contract when they come and directly move into their new home.

However, Japanese rentals usually provide no furniture or appliances, so you need to buy them by yourself, which might be inconvenient to all of you. (You could choose minimini products “Super-kun”, properties with furniture and appliances.)

If you plan to start rental search after coming, you could firstly book a hotel for two or three weeks. In current situation of Covid-19, a 14-day quarantine is required, so you could use this time to find a rental. Please note that after applying for a property, the time required for the screening is up to two weeks. Please consider these things and make reasonable arrangements.

If you are already living in Japan and just need to change a place, the procedures will be easier. You could start looking for a rental about one month in advance.

Next time we will introduce “Precautions for rental search in Tokyo”.
