Tenants are recommended to purchase an home insurance policy. We have researched the policies, prices and services offered by most insurance companies and negotiated with them in order to guarantee the best benefits for you.
If you are interested you can ask us to give you the prices and the conditions of the insurances that we selecterd or search for an alternative that you prefer.
Cancellation or termination
For rentals of less than 90 days, it is also possible to purchase an insurance option protecting against possible cancellation or termination of the stay in line with the conditions provided for in the policy (serious illness, accident, death, severe damage to one’s home, loss of job, job relocation, and labor strikes). This contract guarantees the restitution of paid monies and unpaid rental payments of up to a maximum of 15,000.00 euro. Specify on the request form if you are interested in this option and we will provide you with the cost and send you the necessary information in order to enroll. This option is not available for stays exceeding 3 months.
For stays exceeding 90 days or for shorter stays for which the insurance option was available but not purchased, the down payment will be forfeit in the event of cancellation before tenant’s entry in the apartment.
In the event of termination of the stay following the entrance in the apartment, the tenant must communicate his/her intention by recorded delivery letter with advice of delivery (certified mail with return receipt) at least 2 months prior to the date of termination, during which time the tenant will be responsible for making the required rental payments.
Paris Easy Home charges fees (VAT included), based on the length of the rental period and the price of the rent.
The exact amount of these fees is communicated with the availability confirmation.
In principle, for secondary residence lease agreements, the agency fees will be a fix amount of 200€ + up to 35% of the rent for periods from 4 to 40 days; + up to 25% of the rent from 41 days to 3 months; +up to 20% of the rent for periods from 3 to 5 months; + up to 18% of the rent for periods from 5 to 6 months; up to +16% for more than 6 months.
For primary residence lease agreements, the agency fees charged to the tenants are 12€/sqm (VAT).
The down-payment is equal to 50% of the total rental price for rental periods shorter than a month.
It is equal to agency fees for reservations longer than a month.
The amount due at the check-in (other than the security deposit) is either equal to the remaining 50% of the total (for rental periods shorter than a month) or it is equal to the first month rent (for reservation longer than a month).
Security deposit amounts, payment of which is required prior to or at the moment of entry in the apartment, vary according to the length of the stay.
- for periods of less than one month, the amount is communicated during the availability confirmation.
- for periods of 1 to 5 months, the amount is equal to 1 month’s rent
- for periods exceeding 5 months, the amount is equal to 2 months’ rent
In the absence of damage and/or any outstanding accounts, most likelyhe security deposit will be returned within 5 working days following the end of the stay (by law the security deposit has to be returned within a month after the end of the stay) using the same method of payment by which it was made, minus any banking or PayPal fees applied to bank transfer or credit card payments.
The security deposit does not accrue interest.
For rental periods of less than 1 month, the rental amount must be paid in full prior to entering the apartment (down payment upon booking and the balance at entry). For rental periods exceeding 1 month, the outstanding balance (the difference between the reservation deposit and the first rental payment amount) must be paid at the time of entry.
Rental payments will be paid on a monthly basis thereafter.
Under no circumstances will the security deposit be accepted instead of the final rental payment.
- Utilities: utility costs for the consumption of electricity, gas and telephone (if used) will be tallied into a final sum and settled upon completion of the stay.
For rental periods exceeding 1 month, tenants will be notified of the amount due and payments will be made on a regular basis with the monthly rent. For rental periods of less than 1 month, utility fees will be calculated based on the readings of the meter counters at the time of both entry and exit and settled at the time of check-out.
The tenant is required to leave the apartment in a satisfactory state of cleanliness at the end of the rental period. Dishes must be washed and put away, and trash must be disposed of. If any of these conditions are unmet, a surcharge will be added to the final balance. The surcharge amount will be calculated based on the amount of time required in order to restore the apartment to a level of cleanliness suitable for a new rental.
- Additional Services: costs related to any additional services (eg, shuttle to/from airport, weekly cleaning services, etc.) you decide to purchase at the time of or following booking.
