    how long is the shortest rental period?

    We are moving to HK in November for six months. What is the typical minimum rental period for rental accomodation - are six month break clauses ever heard of? Or are we looking at serviced apartments?

    The answer to your question is whatever the landlord is willing to accept. I've rented for six months in the past. The landlord wanted all the money upfront but we negotiated down to 3 installments.

    Just ask the agent to contact the landlord to see if they will accept whatever rental period you have in mind.

    The shortest legal rental period in HK is one month. For anything less the landlord would need a hotel/guest house license.
