How to rent an apartment?

 

When you're renting an apartment in Beijing please make sure that your new apartment is registered as a rental property. Expats have to register where they're living. Even if you're tempted to skip out on registering where you live, the police can perform random checks, and if you get caught you'll be facing legal trouble.


 

1571671235163869.png

 

After you make a rental agreement, it's common to pay a 1 month deposit and 3 months rent at a time. That means on move-in day, you might need to have four months of rent prepared to pay at once.

If you find your new apartment through a real estate agent, please make sure that your agent comes from a legal, reliable real estate agency. And have to get ready pay 1 month rent for them. If you don't want to pay any agency fees, you can search an apartment from the websites: Wellcee and Beijinger.

 

Make sure you can receive a contract in English so you can read through it carefully or have a Chinese friend help you read a Chinese contract. Check for fake walls living rooms that have been converted into a bedroom with a new, thin wall these are illegal and can pose as a fire hazard. 


The best tip which we can give you when renting an apartment is to be careful and always look at the apartment in person before you transfer any money! Good luck :)
