Duration & end of tenancy

Duration of the tenancy

If the property is not the main residence of the tenant you can choose any duration you want. Otherwise the tenant is entitled a minimum duration of 1 year but tenants can give their notice before provided they respect a 1 month notice. For students the minimum duration is reduced to 9 months.

Termination of the tenancy

It is important to follow the termination process otherwise the tenancy can be renewed for another year. The minimum notice period (“congé” in French) a landlord grants its tenant is of 3 months. The notice must be sent by recorded delivery or delivered by an “huissier de justice” (a sort of bailiff) and state why the landlords wishes to terminate the tenancy. There are 3 grounds to terminate a tenancy: personal occupation, which will generally be the case if you rent your holiday home, occupation by close relatives (spouse, partner, parents or children of the landlord or parents and children of their spouse or partner), or if the landlord wishes to sell the property, or if the tenant doesn’t meet the tenancy agreement requirements.
On the tenant’s side, tenancy can be terminated at any time, for any reason with a 1 month notice and by recorded delivery or by huissier.
