For the purposes of carrying out the important decisions of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council on cultivating and developing the housing rental market, sticking to the concept that “housing is for living in, not for speculation,” and moving faster to put in place a housing system that ensures supply through multiple sources, providing housing support through multiple channels and encouraging both housing purchase and renting so as to meet the housing needs of all citizens, in the work plan on cultivating and developing the housing rental market, the CPC Shenzhen Municipal Committee and the People’s Government of Shenzhen decided to authorize the Shenzhen Municipal Housing and Construction Bureau to develop a unified housing rental supervision and service platform (hereinafter referred to as the rental platform) for the whole city, which provides the public with “one-stop” services for online housing rental. Aimed at “Internet + rental service + public service” and with the principles of “benefiting the people and being safe and efficient,” the rental platform covers all kinds of housing resources, includes all public services, and makes online contract completion easier and rental supervision more transparent. Utilizing cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and other technologies, the rental platform collects “data,” connects to “ intelligence,” and leads toward a new era of good faith rental.
Users can access the platform through any of the following port
