Why Taiwan

Rental Housing

Rental Housing Act & sample contract

When renting a house in Taiwan, it is recommended that you may have a local real estate agent with you to inspect the property before signing a rental contract. Please do not pay any fees in advance before your arrival in Taiwan to avoid plausible scams. The rental contract between the two parties is usually based on the sample rental housing contract issued by the Ministry of the Interior (MoI). According to local regulations, the rental deposit is up to two months' rent, and it is normally paid in cash. For important issues in a rental contract, please refer to the FAQ from Taiwan’s MoI. If you have general inquiries about house leasing or third-party legal counseling, you can also contact the TMM Foundation.
