How to pay rental and fees?

Maybe in your own country, rental includes all the other utilities, but in China, people need to pay separately.

You should be given two bank accounts at least. One account is for paying rent only. The other one is for all the other fees. Receipt or invoice will be send to your mailbox after paid at the end of every month,or they will send delay bill to you.

Rent is the same every month. You just need to deposit the rent into the account for renting by the time agreed. The amount of other fees may vary monthly according to how much water, gas, and electricity you used, how many phone calls you made. All the fees will be deducted from the other bank account one by one from first day till the end of each month automatically if the balance is enough. Therefore, it is very important to keep enough balance in the account at the end of each month.

If the balance is not enough for all the fees, what will happen?
Each kind of fee is charged by different companies:
Gas company,
Water company,
Electricity company,
Cable TV company,
Phone company
Management company(which cover items such as garbage removal,security,shared area utilities and gardening.)
……
When the company can not deduct fee from the bank account, which means delayed paying, you need to travel to these companies to pay cash. Those companies are far away from each other. Also, each company will charge extra punishment fee for delaying accordingly. When the delaying time is long enough, the result will be: all the service will be cut off, which means there will be no water, no gas, no electricity, no phone service and so on.

Some tenants didn’t pay the fee on time, they or the agents had to travel to those companies to pay cash, each time need to take at least half day for just paying those bills. It really consumes a lot of time, energy and human resource.

How to make sure the balance is enough? Here is a form to help you to estimate how much should the bank balance is at the end of each month:

We suggest you to keep the account balance around RMB              in the middle of each month. But, you can make your own estimate based on your own monthly expense, but please make sure the balance is enough for all the fees in the middle of each month! When you no longer rent the house, the money left in the account is still yours,the landlord will return to you for sure.

The other important thing is, according to the rental contract, when the tenant delays paying rental in ten days, or , do not paying for all those bill for over two months, the tenant will be assumed violated the contract, and the landlord has right to get the house back without consent of the tenant. So, please pay the rent on time, deposit enough money in bank account at the last day of each month for all the other fees.
