Case studies and our solutions

1.Though we bought a house in Tokyo,we were assigned to work in England for two years.
We only wanted to rent out our house for two years,and we would like to keep paying our mortgage

The normal contract gives the tenant the right to decide whether renew or not after the contract exprired.The solution is "定期借家契約(Teiki Shakuya keiyaku)",which limits the rental term from the beginning.This allows the owners to come back to live in their own home after the term without any conflicts.

2.The case of an owner who lived abroad and used a large property management deals with foreign customers

Their management was very bad.

  • When there was an inspection of a/c, the owner asked a management company to attend.The company charge 40,000 yen.
  • When the tenant moved out, the owner found a scratch on the wall.The owner asked the management company to deal with this issue after getting permission from the tenant.When the owner came back to check the property after the repair he saw that was poorly done and that he was not satisfied at all.

This owner asked for our advice.We checked the property and made them redo the repair without charge.
After that incident, we took responsibility for that property.The property is now occupied by the new tenant whom we found.

3.The case of the owner who has a whole condo building.It had not been occupied at all while under the management of a different company. The owner still had many expenses to keep up that property

We put up rental information about this building on 13 sites.
It was fully occupied with Japanese and foreign tenants who were chosen based on our assessments.
We are now responsible for the management of this building throughout the contract.
This owner is even considering purchasing another condo for as an investment.
