Why opt for mid-term rentals?

A legal alternative to generate rental income from your apartment when you aren’t using it

You can rent your apartment for periods of 1 month or more. The legislation is clear, Host In Paris understands it in great detail, and our staff are specially trained to advise you on your best options.

Benefit from a premium selection of tenants

90% of Host In Paris tenants come to Paris to work or study:

  • Business secondments,​
  • University and graduate school academics,​
  • Specialist training courses…​

Since the apartment is not your main residence, the risk of illegal occupation at the end of the rental period is contained. It also insures payment of the rent and more respect for the property from the tenants.

An occupied apartment is a better-maintained apartment.

Leaving your apartment empty is not always the best solution, due to the increased risk of burglary and/or damage.

At Host In Paris, we make sure that your apartment is rented for as long as possible when you don’t need to use it.

French legislation governing medium-term furnished rentals

Medium-term rental offers an alternative to traditional long-term leasing for owners wishing to offer their Parisian second home to potential tenants. Two types of leases are available: the bail civil (commercial lease) and the bail mobilité (mobility lease).

The commercial lease is not subject to rent control measures but comes with a minimum period of 3 months. It is also known as a ‘common law’ lease and excludes any form of rent cap or control. In most cases, Host In Paris recommends and uses the mobility lease option.


Why does Host In Paris opt for the mobility lease?

  • Rental periods from 1 to 10 months,​
  • Tailored to the needs of clients on the move: professionals on business secondment, students, etc.​
  • The apartment remains the second home of the tenant,​
  • The rent is subject to rent control measures,​
  • As tax-advantageous as a traditional furnished rental: tax deductible at 50% or 30%, depending on the option selected,​
  • Subject to CSG and CRDS social security deductions (17.2% of taxable income).​
