Rent calculation

  • The level of the rent is not regulated by law and is only determined by market conditions. Nevertheless, once the rent has been agreed upon and stated in the tenancy agreement, the increase is regulated. Make sure a rent revision clause is included in the agreement otherwise an increase is forbidden. Rent increases are annual so if you only rent for one year you might find it useless to include such a clause, except if you change your mind and want to renew the tenancy agreement. The increase allowed is regulated by the “ Indice de Référence des Loyers “ so your tenant is reassured that you can’t apply any rent increase.

 

  • To find the right price for your rent check the local rental level in the local free newspapers that you find at your “boulangerie” or estate agencies. Check the websites specialising in holiday lettings. Once you have decided on your rent level you can apply the following rules for high season and low season if you target seasonal lettings. If you target a longer term tenancy carefully balance the fact that your property will be rented during low season (which deserves a kind of incentive!) but also in high season when lettings are much more expensive together with the fact that a firm booking is better than hopes of bookings.

- High season (July & August): base 100
- Intermediate season (May, June, September & October): discount of 30%
- Low season : discount of 50 to 60%
You can also be flexible depending on the length of the stay with bigger discount for longer lets.
For instance the average rate of a Gîte de France in high season is 408 € and 267 € in low season and 163 € per week-end.
