Understands the circumstances specific to Japanese expatriates and company rules

Housing Support

(From finding your new home to moving out)

To the expatriate, in addition to language differences, it is in the residential environment as a big difference from Japan.  There are many troubles in the property in America not limited to old or new.
The position between the owner and the tenant is also different.  Furthermore, since any expatriate will return to their own country someday, it is necessary to pay the best attention to the contents of the agreement at the time of lease contract.  If you make inappropriate contracts you will pay a large amount of penalty unexpected at the time of leaving. Even if the property is located in the same town, the level of security and school system may change for each street.  Therefore, gathering information about the area is very important.

 

Therefore, we are taking advantage of the experiences and knowledge gained through support of more than 30,000 expatriate, we are offering support related to housing in America such as searching for housing, updating lease agreement, helping with Termination of rental agreement, and consulting about troubles.
