China: Landlord and tenant laws

The amount of control the landlord has over his property, measured on a five-point rating scale:

  • Strongly Pro-landlord = 2
  • Pro-landlord = 1
  • Neutral = 0
  • Pro-tenant = -1
  • Strongly Pro-tenant= -2


We look at factors such as the following:

  • Can rents be freely agreed between landlord and tenant?
  • Can the landlord collect security and rental deposits, and are the amounts limited?
  • Must contracts be for specified periods? Can either landlord or tenant terminate early, and what are the penalties for early termination? Does the tenant have a right to extend?
  • Does the court system work? How long can it take to evict a tenant for non-payment of rent?


For fuller details see the Data FAQ. The resulting rating is the Global Property Guide's view, and not necessarily that of the contributing law firm (in cases where we have asked law firms for contributions and input).

China has poor house price statistics. The National Bureau of Statistics of China (NBSC) has monthly house price time-series starting January 2011 but only until August of 2013. Another source of house price indices is eHomeday, Shanghai's largest property market web site, which has time-series for Shanghai, Nanjing, Hangzhou, Beijing, Yangzhou and Suzhou (but the site is only in Chinese, and no time-series are available). Colliers International publishes useful housing data in their quarterly property market reviews. General economics statistics are available from the NBSC and the People's Bank of China.
