Best way to find Annual rental properties in France in 2023

annual-rental-property-france365It is not always easy to find an annual rental property in France. French landlords are very wary of renting property on an unfurnished rental contract because the law in France is firmly on the side of the tenant.

There are a number of options for finding furnished (or part-furnished) annual rental properties in France, but this can be difficult if you do not have a French bank account or tax records.

Here I explain the process for finding somewhere to rent in France for 12 months or more, as well as highlighting some examples of annual rental properties available to rent at the moment.

Unfurnished annual rental property France 

The most common property rental contract in France is for unfurnished rentals of 3 years. The rental contract is called Contract Location or du Colocation de logement and it runs to over 30 pages including annexes!!!

An unfurnished rental property in France is normally just a bare property without a fridge, washing machine, oven or even light bulbs. The law in France is very much on the side of the tenant.

Just to give you an insight, it is virtually impossible in France to evict a tenant between October to March, even if they have stopped paying the rent. The story is that in the 1950's, Abbé Pierre, a French Resistance legend and at that time a priest in the Paris suburbs, found a parishioner frozen to death on the streets clutching an eviction notice. He campaigned tirelessly to change the property law to prevent such evictions during the winter months. As noble as Abbé Pierre's intentions were (and I would encourage you to read his fascinating life history on Wikipedia), this has created a real landmine for Landlords. 

We have a property on our sister site, Go Languedoc, which is now only available for holiday rentals. Previously, the Owner had rented the property to a French couple. They had paid the rent during the first year, but after that they didn't pay a cent. On the 1st April each year the Owner commenced the eviction proceedings. It took 2 months to get a court hearing date, which was then postponed by 2 months by the tenant. The Judge then decided in the favour of the Owner, but the tenants appealed the decision, until guess what? We were now into October. How long did this process go on for? 5 years!!! Yes 5 years without any rental income and no way of evicting the tenant. All landlords in France have heard these type of horror stories, so they are especially careful when renting property on an annual basis.

cottages rent france500We do try and help clients find rental properties in France, but generally we limit our rental contracts to 12 months and under (for legal reasons). If you are looking to rent for 2-3 years, the process in France can be quite trick, especially if you don't have any financial history in France.

There is a good friend of ours here in Pezenas, France, who was looking to rent an unfurnished villa on annual basis covering an 18 month to 2 year period. We were able to find a suitable rental property for her and it just so happens that we knew the Real Estate agent very well and we were able to personally vouch for our friend. So you would imagine that the rental process was quite smooth. Not a chance.

From start to finish it took 2 whole months just to complete all the paperwork. Our friend had to provide French translations of her birth certificate, her company partnership agreement, a letter of reference from 2 previous landlords, copies of banks statements from the previous 18 months and a letter of recommendation from her French bank Manager. I am not making any of this up by the way, but it goes on!!! She also had to pay 1 years rent up front (with no rental reduction), she had to pay a 2 month security deposit and she had to place the 2nd year's rent into an escrow account. It was only then that she got hold of the keys to the property.

So you will see, it is very difficult to rent an unfurnished property on an annual basis in France. If you are a Foreigner, with no bank records or income in France, then it could be virtually impossible to arrange prior to your arrival. You would need to be on the ground in France for at least a month, as well as having sufficient funds to provide the necessary financial guarantees. So what are the alternatives?

Furnished annual rentals in France

annual-furnished-rental-property-franceIt is possible to find furnished annual rental properties in France, but by law the rental contract is for 12 months. The contract is then renewable on a yearly basis, under the same terms as agreed for the first 12 months (apart from any approved rental increase). Most furnished rental apartments and houses in France will be quite bare. The Law requires just that the property comes with a bed with bedding, shutters or curtains in the bedroom, a stove top or hotplates, an oven or Micro-wave, a refrigerator, a freezer or freezer compartment that freezes to -6°C or less, sufficient tableware, cooking utensils, a table & chairs, shelves, lighting and housecleaning equipment such as a vacuum, broom or mop. Normally that is the minimum and maximum that you will find in the property. Most of our furnished annual rental properties on Long term rentals in France are much more comfortably furnished than this, but this is not the norm in France.

In terms of the Furnished annual rental contract, you would be expected to pay 2 months security deposit, pay the rent in advance each month, as well as pay an agreed provision for utility bills (unless these are transferred into your name). You will also need to take out house insurance and provide evidence of this. You will also be liable for paying the taxe d'habitation, which is a local community charge to pay for garbage collection, street lighting and the local town poop-a-scooper! On average you should expect to pay

  • in the range of €450-€800 per year for the taxe d'habitation (depending on the size of the property and the local area).
  • €80-120 per month for electricity,
  • €50-70 per month for water and
  • €30-50 per month for telephone and internet.

 

Principal residency in France

french real estate investment500One question that we do get asked a lot, especially from clients who are looking to apply for French Residency, is that they need the rental accommodation to become their official principal residence in France. This is possible, but I firstly need to explain the difference between a principal and secondary residence.

A principal residence in France is not just your current main residence. So even if you don't own any property elsewhere in the World, it is not automatically assumed that your rental property in France will be determined to be your principal residence. The legal definition of a principal residence is as follows:

  • it is normally a property where you have been or will be staying for a minimum of 8 months
  • the residence must be aligned with your place of work/business, children's schools, social life or other significant aspect of your life
  • you do not envisage leaving the property in the near future (i.e., it is your permanent home)

The principal residence should also be the official address where you are registered for tax with the French authorities. The reason why the definition of a principal residence is so strict, is because there are significant taxation implications and a certain amount of tax avoidance activity.

Firstly, in France, the Government has begun to phase out a significant property tax (taxe d'habitation). From 2022, no French resident will pay taxe d'habitation on his/her principal residence. The tax will however remain in place for second homes. What some French citizens have been doing, is that if they own 2 properties in France, they have been transferring their principal residence on the property which has the highest taxe d'habitation to pay and making the property with the lowest taxe d'habitation their secondary residence.

Secondly, the Capital Gains Tax in France is around 20%. This can be a significant hit when you come to sell your French property. However, you do not pay the CGT when you sell your principal residence, only if the property is a second home. So again, some French residents with 2 properties in France, will transfer their principal residence to the property that they intend to sell in the near future, thus reducing their liability to the CGT.

In response to this situation, the French tax authorities have tightened the rules on when a property can become your residence principal. As the website Droit Finances notes:

A principal residence is the place where the tax payer usually resides and where he/she has the center of his family and professional interests. To check the veracity of the information provided by the taxpayer with several dwellings, the tax authorities can, for example, take into account their energy consumption, their place of work, their children's school, etc. in order to determine the place of his principal residence.

SOURCE: Principal residence definition

But it is not just taxation issues that can lead some Landlords in France from declining rentals on properties where it is intended to become the tenants principal residence in France. There are also some quite significant legal issues.

As we have stated above, the French rental regulations heavily protect the rights of tenants. However, these rules only apply to rentals organised under the Loi ALUR, which are by definition, for properties which are rented on the basis of principal residency. Although some regulations still apply for holiday rentals, seasonal lets and rentals which are specifically determined in the contract as secondary residences; the most significant restrictions are removed.

Thus, it can often be easier to find rentals in France on the basis that it will be your secondary or temporary residence. It should also be stated that when it comes to applying for French Residency, you do not necessarily need to have a principal residence in France. So for example, to provide evidence of your justicatif à domicile, you do not need to provide your rental contract. You can instead provide

  • an attestation d'herbergement signed by your Landlord, or
  • a recent utility bill in your name, or
  • a home insurance or Tenants Insurance policy document

To rent a furnished rental property in France on an annual basis, we have tried where possible to make the process much more simpler. For our rental properties, we will require a copy of your identity papers (passport copy and or visa), a letter of reference from your current landlord or person in a respected community position and some proof of ability to pay the rent (letter from your bank, employment contract or copy of your bank statement). Usually the process can be completed within 3-5 days, including signing the rental contract. Most of our Property Owners will accept a 1 month security deposit, provided that you take out either travel insurance or house insurance. The rental contract that we provide is perfectly acceptable by banks for opening bank accounts, for schools for registering pupils and for the various utility companies (EDF for electricity, Orange for Mobile and Fixed phone lines, Internet providers, etc).
