Estimate of costs - example

The rental of a property gives rise to various costs in addition to the rent. To make it easier to plan your move, it is helpful to have a quote from the start that tells you how much it will cost to install in your new place of residence. Some specific fees in Japan may sometimes be necessary.
We invite you to consult the calculation estimate provided below as an example.
