Renting in Paris

Although the furnished rental apartment market in Paris may appear complex, it is actually quite manageable if you are familiar with some key guidelines.

Paris, tense zone

Paris is considered a "tense zone." Tenants must provide one month's notice before leaving. So the availability date of the apartment for rent is known one month in advance. Therefore, the closer your move-in date, the more likely you will find an apartment! There are many new apartments available every month.
