Furnished private-sector housing
The rental of furnished accommodation is subject to a specific legal regime.
The furnished rental must be on a dwelling with all the necessary furniture for the dwelling. Otherwise, it may be reclassified as bare rental and subject to the constraints of the law of 6 July 1989. A number of pieces of furniture are required, the list of these pieces is fixed by Decree No. 2015-981 of 31 July 2015.
The duration of a lease agreement for a furnished apartment is generally one year, and is tacitly renewed under the same conditions as the previous year. The lease can be for a period of 9 months when the property is rented to a student, in which case there will be no tacit renewal of the lease.
Free furnished apartment:
When an accommodation is not occupied as a principal residence, the landlord and the tenant are in principle free to set the duration of the lease, renewal conditions, rent, etc.
Furnished holiday rentals:
Holiday rentals are furnished accommodations put up for rent for a maximum and renewal period of 90 days. In the UK, they are regulated by HS253 for tax purposes, and properties must meet certain requirements to be eligible. The property should conform to safety and fire safety standards, and we advise that any landlord researches these fully. The duration, the price and any conditions of the contract are arranged between the landlord and tenant. The contract (or letter of confirmation) must include: the rental price, the duration of location with arrival and departure times, the surface of the property and the deposit amount.
The contract freely sets the maximum number of occupants, and allows or prohibits animals in the rental.
Roomlala advises you to establish an inventory upon the tenant’s arrival. In the absence of an inventory, it is the landlord’s responsibility to prove the state and number of objects or equipment that have deteriorated because of the tenant.
