I am moving to HK and looking to rent an apartment, how does it work in HK money-wise?
If a rental flat is asking for $X per month, what fees should I be paying before move in, during, and when moving out?
1. Is there a background check / admin / cleaning fee at move in/out ?
2. Building concierge/management fees?
3. Any 'council tax' type fees?
4. Who pays for agent's commission?
5. What is a sensible deposit (I was told 2 months rent as deposit + 1 month rent in advance before move in).
