Features of real estate in France
Renting a property in France can be a little difficult, the property owner may request a bunch of documents to protect themselves from non-paying clients.
If you want to rent a property in France, then you have nothing to worry about, the main thing is to know a few basic points.

Each side has its own responsibilities.
If you rent a property, be it an office, an apartment or a house, you yourself will pay for all utilities (taxe d'habitation). This only applies to long term rentals. Sometimes, for short-term rentals, utilities are already included in the price. The landlord is also required to comply with the rules of cleanliness in the premises. A The Landlord must provide a safe, decent premises and make major repairs if necessary in accordance with Article 6 of Law No. 89-462 of July 6, 1989. Also, the Landlord undertakes to pay property tax (taxe foncière). And here there is such a moment, if for some reason the owner does not fulfill his obligations, or ceases to fulfill them, the tenant does not have the right to stop paying for housing.
“The tenant pays the tax for the use of the premises, and the owner pays the land tax. Sometimes competent landlords are afraid that they will stop paying, and the contract may indicate that, for example, it leases not all the premises, but some part of it, then he has the legal right to enter the premises, including with bailiffs, ”so be careful.

Change in the cost of rent
Imagine that in France, the owner cannot increase the value beyond the established norm.
To do this, there is the National Institute of Statistics and Economic Research (Institut National de la Statistique et des Études Économiques, INSEE) which reviews prices quarterly.
You can see the increase in rent on the website
National Housing Information Agency (Agence national pour l’information sur le logement, ANIL)

Contract period

There are three terms of the contract.
A long-term contract (location vide) is when an unfurnished apartment is rented out for at least three years, or for six years if the landlord is a legal entity.

Contract for one year. If the property is furnished (location meublée) then the lease can be for 12 (twelve months) or 9 (nine)

Short term rental - LMCT (location meublée court terme)
This is a rental that is rented furnished for a short time. Daily, monthly or weekly.

Whatever property you rent, the most important thing is to carefully read the terms of the contract.

Keep in mind, at the request of the Landlord, the Tenant must provide a copy of the tax notice,
paybook, employment contract, copy of payment details. But nothing more. If you are asked for any additional documents, you should clarify for what purposes it is needed.

If you are a Tenant then you need to know that the law will always be on your side. And this is sometimes used by scammers. Because litigation can take a very long time. The fact is that according to the law, the owner does not have the right to evict the tenant and this is often used by not respectable citizens.
That is why the Tenant has the right to demand a guarantee fee no more than 1 month in advance.
But even here there are nuances. If you pay several months in advance, then no guarantee fee is required.

Tenant Security
In the winter in France, you cannot be evicted to the street, as there is a law forbidding this, which is valid from November 1st to April 1st. And also, in order to protect themselves from unscrupulous Tenants, the owner may demand payment from the insurance company according to the contract.
