Nihon Safety’s rental guarantee system
If you want to rent a room in Japan, you need a guarantor.
Many non-Japanese residents actually have trouble finding a guarantor.
Nihon Safety Co., Ltd. helps non-Japanese residents who have difficulty finding a guarantor for their apartment rental.
You need a guarantor to ensure your credit for rental contracts. Our service guarantees that your landlord will receive a monthly payment of rent.
How our guarantee service works
We examine your application for the guarantee service.
Please make the necessary arrangements with a real estate company in advance.
1. Application for guarantee
[Tenant → Real estate company]
Contact a real estate company that handles Nihon Safety’s guarantee system. Please submit the specified application and necessary documents.
* Remember: The documents you submit will not be returned.
2. Acceptance and examination
[Real estate company → Nihon Safety]
We review the contents of your application, confirm details, and decide whether to provide the guarantee.
3. Notice of examination results
[Nihon Safety → Real estate company → Tenant]
After we examine the application, the real estate company will notify the tenant of the results of our decision.
*Your application may be rejected on the basis of the information it contains.
[Real estate management company ←→ Tenant]
When your application is accepted, you will be asked to enter a guarantee consignment contract. Sign and seal the contract, and pay the guarantee charge*1.
The guarantee period is one year. If you continue renting over a long term, the guarantee period will have to be renewed every year. You will have to pay a safety fee for each renewal.
*1 The guarantee charge is not a safety deposit. It will not be returned even if you cancel the contract within the guarantee period.
Documents necessary for application
