You must notify your intention of move-out to your housing agency at least ONE MONTH PRIOR to your move-out day. For those who have OIST as your guarantor and you are moving out of Japan, you are required to have a pre house inspection about a week before your move-out date.
Notify your intention of your contract cancellation to your insurance company once your move-out date is confirmed. The fire insurance should be cancelled on the same day as your housing lease ending date.
Notify your intention of your contract cancellation to the internet company once the cancellation date is confirmed. Also, confirm your final payment method.
Timing of SIM cancellation and its policy varies depending on SIM card companies.
Since most of the SIM companies charges monthly(→Most of the SIM companies only allow you to have your contract terminated at the end of the month even if you want to have it terminated in the middle of the month), your final bill will most likely be charged for the entire month.
The final bill is charged in the following month or two months later depending on your payment method.
The SIM card must be sent back to the company after the cancellation.
Please visit the phone shop to cancel your contract and complete the final payment if you have a direct contract with a phone shop.
