You are looking for a property to rent, the procedure to follow for tenants or how to find an rental apartment, villa, house or commercial premise.

Before beginning your search

Define your search criteria and only visit those flats, houses or commercial premises that fit your expectations. This will enable you to gain time. The most important criteria are location, surface area, number of rooms, number of bedrooms, parking, public transport, schools, light, price, etc.


Consult newspaper and the internet for properties that correspond to your criteria. On the internet you will find direct information facilities at the internet sites of vaious agencies and on estate agents portals. It can be helpful to enter appropriate sites in the favourites area of your browser. Some internet sites will enable you to subscribe to new property warning systems (also our site). You can subscribe directly to the RSS feed on our website to be immediately informed of any changes to our list of offers by category (for example: villas for rent). It can be useful to telephone or write to agencies. Since a considerable number of properties are rented out by word of mouth, do not hesitate to tell friends and acquaintances about your searches.

The visit

If you have found a property that interests you, call the agency or the landlord to obtain more detailed information and arrange a visit to the property. During the visit, if the property continues to interest you, ask the tenant for the registration form.

Registration file

If the present tenant does not give you the registration form, ask the agency for it immediately. Then sign it. Add very clear copies of all the documents. You will find more information about the registration file on our internet site.

The reply from the agency

Most agencies will answer your application within 3 to 7 days, depending on the complexity of the file. The agency and landlord often have to face a situation in which they receive several files with comparable data, and have to decide between them. A negative reply is not necessarily due to your file.
