If you are interested in any one of our apartment units, please write email with approximate move in and move out date as well as your preferred type of apartments. That way, we can determine the availability and rental rates and respond and communicate to you in an efficient manner. 

Typically, most of apartments become available July-August and January-February. Many of tenants here have made contracts through email and sent contract fee through international money transfer in June  and July before their arrival in Seoul. There should be vacancy during any time of the year so that please ask at anytime for apartment opening. I have typically asked potential tenants to look at Suyu Studio ( if they require more affordable housing with more amenities like TV or microwave.    

If you come from the US, you have the option of negotiating rental rate in US$ and paying rent in landlord's US bank account as well as US based paypal account. This should work better for students whose parents send money from US. Please ask for detail.

Lease Terms

All inclusive price (monthly rent + high speed internet, digital cable TV signal, heating (gas), water, electricity and common area cleaning etc.) and the lease agreement is in English as landlords are an Korean American couple.

Security deposit equivalent to one month rent is sufficient for the rental. All of our studio apartments are approximately 200-300q ft. with their own private bath and kitchen. Our rents are all inclusive price. Thus, you do not pay anything additional unless asking for TV.  Also, there is no broker fee as it is direct offering by the landlord.  

The rental process
If you like an apartment and want to guarantee your space at your desired move in date (typically 3-6 weeks before your move in), you will need to put down something called Contract Fee (계약금) and begin writing a contract with personal information for both renter and landlord. Contract Deposit can be reduced if you come to live in our studio directly from overseas. If not, it will be equal to the first month rent. Contract deposit will not be accepted if your proposed move in date is more than 2 months away. Exceptions can be made, but the contract deposit may be as high as security deposit. This contract fee is credited toward the first month's rent. When you move in, the first month rent plus security deposit (equivalent to one month rent) minus any contract fee will be due.
