Tenancy agreement

  • Even if not compulsory for a seasonal letting or if you rent to tenants whose main residence is not your property, it is always advisable to draw a written contract. It is called ‘bail’ in French (pronounced bye like in ‘good bye’). A written ‘bail’ is compulsory for a tenant who is using your property as their principal home.
  • You can do it yourself and use a standard form available in specialized books or on websites or use a specialist such as an estate agent or an hussier, or ask a notary to provide an ‘acte authentique’. The latter is the most protective solution but also the most expensive and maybe overcautious in the case of short term letting. In the case of long term lettings such costs are generally shared between landlord and tenant but for a short term tenancy you can’t really charge the equivalent of one month rent or even half of it for only a piece of paper (a tenancy agreement from a notary will be circa 500 € but cheaper from a estate agent).
  • If you plan to let your holiday home on a regular basis, we recommend you use the services of a professional for the first times, at your expense. If you feel comfortable with the French language you can buy a ‘kit location pour locaux meublés’ on www.tissot.fr, a leading French publisher  of real estate forms, or consult the ‘de particulier à particulier’ website www.pap.fr/ aides et conseils/contrats ou modèles de lettres.
  • It is important to take proper notice, because although there is some freedom to add clauses, some clauses are forbidden.
