What’s GENJOU KAIFUKU GIMU? “Obligation of restoration”

GENJOU KAIFUKU GIMU means the obligation of restoration.

The obligation to restore the property to its original condition is to restore the decrease in the value of the property caused by the lessee’s occupancy and use, such as willful negligence or negligence on the part of the lessee, breach of the duty of care of a good manager, or other wear and tear caused by use that exceeds normal use.

A security deposit or security deposit that you pay when you move in. These are money that the landlord takes in advance to cover the cost of restoring a room to its original state if it is stained or damaged by the tenant. Also, as the landlord, you can guarantee the risk of non-payment of rent by keeping a security deposit or security deposit.

Restoration isn’t about restoring them to the condition they were in when they moved in.
