Hello everyone,

I'm going to be moving to HK with my partner and our son (4 years old). We'll be looking to rent an apartment on HK island. Is there a standard deposit size we need to allow for (1 month, 2 month etc) or any other costs we will be expected to pay when we sign the rental contract? Also can anyone recommend a good area for families that's got a 30 min or less commute for someone working in central district?

Many thanks

standard deposit size

Hello,

The standard deposit size of renting a flat/apartment is usually 2 months, but you have to pay for the first month too. So in order to rent a place, you have to pay 3 months worth of rent.

Hope that helps, :)
