Jeonse is a real property lease system unique to Korea. Instead of monthly rent paid to the landlord, a significant amount (usually 30%–60% of the price of house) is entrusted to the landlord as security deposit during the term of lease contract. Security deposit shall be returned in full at the end of lease contract.
Type of lease wherein rent for a certain period is prepaid (lump-sum) without security deposit for officetels or commercial properties, with the term of lease being 1–2 months for shorter ones and up to 1 year for longer ones. Also, this method is mainly used by students living in college neighborhoods who have vacations and no intent of a long-term use.
