How is the deposit in the rental agreement agreed and handled?

This is a question that any foreigner wants to know, so S-Home explains as follows:

In accordance with Article 328 of the Civil Code 2015. Deposit means that a party assigns the other party a sum of money (called a security deposit) for a period of time to secure a contract or to perform a contract.

In the lease, the deposit is the amount agreed by the two parties to ensure the performance of the Contract. The tenant can often lose the deposit when the case occurs:
+ Termination of the lease before the agreed time.
+ The contract is terminated because of the violation of the Tenant.
This deposit clause is closely related to the term of the tenancy as well as the lessee's responsibilities in the contract.
To be able to sign a lease, the tenant will have to place a deposit (usually between 1 and 2 months rent) for the landlord.

To protect your legitimate rights, you need to agree and make clear about whether the deposit will be deducted from your rent later.

When will the lessor refund the deposit to the lessee? When the lease terminates, how to handle the deposit? .....

Thus, a rent deposit is understood as a measure to secure and execute a lease.

Should rent long term or short term?

This depends on the needs and financial capacity of each person. If long-term lease:
 + From 6 months to 1 year or more, you will get cheaper rent. If you decide you want to live and work for a long time, you can hire for a long term to save more.
If short-term lease:
+ From 3 months or less, you rent the right price and get the landlord incentives for you. Or you will be denied rent even though you really like the apartment.
Please contact the broker and state your requirements.
They will find rental apartments that suit your needs and moreover they can help you negotiate prices for you.
The contract is usually one year and if it stops before the deadline it will be fined.

** Please note, for foreign guests, it is recommended to rent a condominium with a full interior, to avoid having to move in and have it repaired and equipped.
