Affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, the South Korean government has had a series of entry restrictions and inspections for health and safety measures, reduced flights, and changes in visa policies. Major colleges and universities have also canceled or postponed graduation ceremonies, welcome parties, and other large-scale events, and required students returning to school are needed to be isolated. Some schools have centralized isolation in their dormitories, and students and professors who do not live in the dormitory will be required to stay at home.
This has caused many tenants to worry about whether the landlord will refuse to return or rent the house to himself. Don’t worry, during the validity period of the house contract, the landlord has no right to quarantine the tenants or clear the house. Of course, considering the landlord’s relationship with you, it is recommended not to go out for a while after negotiation or implementing home isolation. Although, the specific measures depend on the situation. After all, in extraordinary times, the entry and lifestyle in South Korea are different from usual. For the safety of everyone and the people around us, but also to maintain a good international image.
In Seoul housing, it is very important to conduct self-home isolation, prevent yourself from going out, have contact with other people and do a good job in virus prevention.
