CONDITION OF THE PREMISES

The owner declares that the premises offered for rent correspond to the characteristics of decent housing as defined by the decree n° 2002-120 of January 30, 2002.an inventory of fixtures is a document which describes in detail the state of the housing and its equipment, room by room. It makes it possible to determine whether the rented premises have suffered any damage during the rental period. In case of damage, the owner can compare the inventory of fixtures at the beginning and the inventory of fixtures at the end of the rental period to ask for repair of the deteriorations caused by the tenant. According to article 1730 of the Civil Code, the tenant must return the accommodation as he received it, according to the inventory of fixtures, except for what has perished or has been damaged by obsolescence or force majeure. An inventory of fixtures of entry and exit are established contradictorily between the parts, i.e., at the same time the financial backer and the tenant must be present or represented, and establish together the inventory of fixtures, by agreeing on its contents before signing it. The inventory of fixtures must be established in writing in two copies, signed by the owner (or his representative) and by the tenant. In the absence of an inventory of fixtures, article 1731 of the Civil Code indicates that the tenant is presumed to have received the dwelling in a good state of repair, and must return it as such, unless proven otherwise (for example by photographs of the dwelling). The tenant is thus supposed to take and to have to return the dwelling in perfect condition.

OBLIGATIONS OF THE OWNER

The owner is obliged to deliver to the tenant a clean dwelling and in good general condition, in conformity with the descriptive state of the dwelling. He must make, during the whole duration of the rental contract, all repairs that may become necessary, according to article 1720 of the Civil Code. This does not include rental repairs, as listed in the decree of August 26, 1987. The landlord is obliged to maintain the dwelling in a state of service according to the use for which it was rented. The landlord is obliged to ensure the peaceful enjoyment of the dwelling. The landlord is obliged to guarantee the tenant against defects in the accommodation that prevent its use, even if the landlord did not know about them at the time of signing the rental agreement. If the tenant suffers a loss as a result of these defects, the landlord is obliged to compensate the tenant, as stipulated in Article 1721 of the Civil Code.

OBLIGATIONS OF THE TENANT

If the number of persons exceeds the capacity of the accommodation, the owner is entitled to refuse the additional persons or to ask for the payment of an additional sum.

PETS : Pets are not accepted in the accommodation, and the stay of these pets will be refused by the owner. In case of refusal of the owner to welcome certain pets on the premises of the accommodation, this refusal can in no case be considered as a modification or a breach of contract at the initiative of the owner, so that in case of departure of the tenant, no refund can be considered.
