UR housing is a type of rental accommodation that does not require any key money, renewal fee, or agency commission. It was previously called public housing (kodan jutaku) and accepts residents on a first-come, first-served basis.
There are currently over 760,000 UR housing units nationwide, and they are entirely built and managed by the former Japan Housing Corp., which is now called the Urban Renaissance Agency.
On all UR apartments, there is no need to pay key money, agent commissions and renewal fees, or have a guarantor at the time of lease signing—all of which are generally required when renting privately owned rental housing.
In addition, UR apartments are built in compliance with all of the safety rules for earthquake and fire protection, thanks to its construction and management in pursuit of reassurance, safety, and comfort as a part of the government project established in 1955. UR housing is highly beneficial as just described and will continue to support people's lives and be on the side of residents.
UR housing stands on reliability that has been established over 50 years since 1955. All of the accommodation units are built with best suited structures and reliable construction methods found after years of research, providing absolute safety and ease even housing structures not visible externally. In addition, centering on older buildings, UR apartment buildings are given thorough evaluations of seismic capacity, and nearly 88% of the buildings with potential risks of collapsing have been reinforced with anti-seismic structures, added to which are fire prevention measures, giving thorough safety management of potential emergency situations.
UR housing, at all times, continues to protect the well-being of people in pursuit of reassurance, safety, and comfort.
