If you decide to rent part or all of your accommodation to a tenant, it’s important to take into account a few things before getting started. Here is a non-exhaustive list that may be useful:
Stay informed of current regulations
There is a legal framework that you need to know about. Check the following before getting started:
- Rental lease
- Rules of procedure
- Co-ownership rules
- Laws in place in your city
- Laws in place in your region
Ask for your landlord’s permission if you sublet
If you are a tenant, you must obtain authorisation from your landlord before subletting your property on Roomlala. Reassure your landlord that Roomlala has a trust centre to verify the identity of tenants, and each tenant is reviewed by other Roomlala members. On Roomlala, you can benefit from insurance against all damages up to €1,500,000, and you retain control by choosing your tenants yourself.
Inform your neighbours
Your neighbours may ask you for more details about the tenants who will be staying with you. Just as with your owner, don’t hesitate to reassure them.
- For each of your ads, fill in the capacity (i.e. number of tenants you wish to host). You can only allow a certain number of tenants if you wish.
- Specify your house rules to all tenants
- Provide your tenants with one or more emergency numbers
- Check the condition of, or purchase a smoke and carbon monoxide detector to comply with French Law.
- Tell your landlord and neighbours when a new tenant arrives at your home, and let them know for how long the tenant will be staying
