What will happen if I end my lease sooner than previously agreed?
No matter what your justification to exit the rental contract prior to its expiry date, tenancy agreements in Vietnam particularly make clear that such action will result in the tenant having to sacrifice all of their security deposit. Even when a break or takeover clause is specified in the contract, the ultimate decision will be at the mercy of the landlord’s discretion.
Who is responsible for maintenance of the interior & exterior of the rental house?
Besides keeping the property – both indoors and outdoors – in tip-top condition, it’s up to the tenant to carry out general maintenance tasks such as replacing blown electrical fuses; keeping drains clear of debris; making minor repairs like unclogging a blocked toilet or touching up bathroom caulks; mending or replacing any articles belonging to the owner that has been damaged or broken during your tenancy.
On the other hand, if the shower has gone kaput, the garage door has jammed, the roof is gushing water or you have discovered a serious termite infestation; immediately acknowledge the landlord and let them handle these issues.
Regarding electricity, in case there happens to be a power cut in your rental property, the first and foremost thing to do is to check around your neighborhood. If the surrounding apartments or houses are experiencing the same problem, then the power outage is a regional issue and therefore, out of control of the landlords. Only after you have been sure that the problem only happens with your house should you notice the landlord and demand adjustments. Also, put yourself in the landlord’s shoes and be an empathetic tenant during such occurrences. If the Internet is not available during power cuts, find a cafe with free Wifi to do your work, don’t bother the landlord with something that they can’t control.
What types of payment are tenants required to make while renting a house in Da Nang?
Besides paying renting fee to the landlord, house renters usually have to pay all the utility bills (including water, electricity, and sometimes cable TV and Internet).
For those renting serviced apartments, the utility costs (except electricity) are usually included in the renting fee.
Will I be given a lease agreement, what does it state & will it be written in English?
Worry not, Vietnamese law demands that an official rental contract is drawn up and endorsed by both the tenant and the landlord (either the property owner or their chosen representative). As a legally binding arrangement, lease agreements in Vietnam set out the obligations of the landlord (lessor) and the “duties and liabilities” of the tenant (lessee) alongside terms and conditions.
At HRD, our tenancy agreements and inventories are issued both in English and Vietnamese.
How is the rental agreement concluded?
The rental contract is made between the landlord and the tenant. In most cases, HRD will draw up the contract in consultation with the landlord and the tenant and forward the contract to both parties for viewing before going to sign.
When exactly will my security deposit be returned?
After tenants have purged all of their personal belongings, restored the property to its clean, liveable pre-rental state, settled any remaining utility bills and turned in the keys, landlords are normally required to refund the security deposit (minus any appropriate deductions) within a 7-day limit. In reality, however, the reimbursement is often given to tenants before they actually move out.
What is the security deposit for?
The security deposit is usually one month of the rental price and will be refunded to the tenant at the end of the contract.
The security deposit is to protect landlords against any damage to the property caused by the tenant. In case such events take place, the landlord has the right to deduct the cost of repairs from the security deposit when the tenant moves out.
The security deposit also helps the landlords to pay utility bills for tenants who move out without notice before the end of the contract.
Good faith deposit (booking deposit)?
The booking deposit is commonly the quantity of one month’s rent. Landlords ask it to make sure you will take their house, apartment or villa… so they can cancel other requests from other people for viewings or renting the property.
After the landlord accepts this deposit, if he or she rents the house to another party or changes his/her mind (sell the house, don’t want you to rent the property), he/she must compensate for double the deposit.
This deposit becomes part of the security deposit, or advance rental payment after the entire lease agreement is signed.

Are tenants screened before being allowed to rent a house in Da Nang?
Unlike in the West, tenant screening process (employment references, lease guarantor, credit check and so) is not a common practice in Viet Nam. Therefore, preparing for the process is not necessary unless specified by the landlord.
