Apartment rentals being banned in Paris??

Jump to last reply

Is the ability to be able to rent a Paris apartment for under one year on the chopping block?

Most of us know that the hotel lobby has been pushing for this for a few years. However, this is the first time I've received a letter from an agency. Seems like the possibility of this actually happening is becoming closer to reality.

Anyone with info, please post!

I received the following email from Lodgis.com, a reliable, well-known French agency, a few minutes ago. We've rented through Lodgis five times over the past few years.

Here's the letter I just received via email:

Hello,

Furnished rental is threatened in Paris, as well as in other French towns of 200 000 inhabitants or more. Renting for less than one year will soon become nearly impossible. Paris City Hall has decided to forbid it. Wether you want to rent an apartment for a short term stay to visit Paris, attend a fair, come for an 8 months internship or even stay in Paris for 11 months for business, City Hall wants you to say in a hotel instead of an apartment. It will even become impossible to rent an apartment when you are in a difficult situation, and need to find a home to get medical care, or after a break-up or a decease. According to City Hall, renting a flat in those conditions is now becoming illegal.

Parisian owners are in a difficult situation : it is becoming impossible to rent your second home when you are not in Paris. The law says that you can either:

Choose to rent for short term, pay a considerable amount of money (80 000 for a 20 m2 studio), and pray for City Hall to accept your request. If you succeed, you will be able to rent for short term but you won't be allowed to occupy your apartment for personal use.
Choose to occupy the apartment personally but be unable to rent it when you are out of town.

Our agency is part of an organization that defends short term rentals. Our mean is to defend tenants and owners, and allow people to visit Paris the way they want, whether it is for business or personal purpose, and whether it is for one week or 10 months. We have some appointments with Paris City Hall and the government. The only way to make them listen to our requests is for us to get as many supporters as possible. We need to show them that we represent the opinion of a large number. For that WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT.
