Case Details

I was charged 100,000 yen for the restoration fee when I moved out of a rental apartment. Is it a reasonable amount?

I moved out of a rental apartment that lived for 4 years in March. About 100,000 yen was charged for the restoration of the original condition, such as wallpaper fee and house cleaning fee. I understand I must bear the cost for house cleaning when I moved out as I was also smoking. I would like to know if this charge is reasonable.


The tenant will be responsible for the tenant's willfulness, negligence, and wear resulting from use beyond normal use. In addition, you might have to bear certain costs for things such as cigarette odors and other odors. Evaluate and discuss the burden ratio for each item of the invoice referring to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism's “Troubles and Guidelines for Restoration.”
