The constitution of your file can be done in several steps. If you are missing one or two supporting documents, you can send them to us in the following days either by email, by post or by coming directly to the residence.
The guarantor is the person who, by signing the joint and several guarantee, undertakes to pay the rent in the event that the tenant is unable to do so.
The joint and several guarantee is a legal act involving a person other than the tenant and the residence in the rental agreement. The person signing the deed of joint and several guarantee undertakes to pay the costs of the tenancy in the event of non-payment by the tenant.
The guarantor must be solvent. They must be able to prove, by proving their income, that they are able to obtain this status and to assume the obligations arising from it.
Your reservation is confirmed when the necessary documents have been provided and signed and the first payments have been made.
Depending on availability, it is possible to book accommodation for a short period. To do so, please contact the desired residence.
It is possible to choose accommodation according to availability. Of course, the student who applies as early as possible before the start of the school year will have a much wider choice.
You can of course visit an accommodation and it is strongly recommended. To visit an accommodation you should make an appointment by calling or emailing the residence. Otherwise, you can visit an available accommodation during the opening hours of the residence's reception.
It is not always easy for you, who may be coming from far away, to come and visit. That's why we can send you photos and a plan so that you can get an idea of the accommodation.

Before moving in, you will need to take out a home insurance policy that will take effect on the day you move in and make an appointment for the inventory of fixtures and the handover of the keys.
On the day of your arrival, you will need to have signed the lease, submitted your home insurance policy and completed an inventory of fixtures with the residence manager.
Taking out a home insurance policy is mandatory for a tenant, in accordance with article 7 of the law n°89-462 of July 6, 1989 relating to rental relationships.
A tenant's home insurance covers his civil liability. As an occupant of the property, he/she is responsible for damages caused to the owner's property, and by extension, to damages that could be suffered by neighbors and third parties due to :
In the event of a claim, rental risk insurance covers damage resulting from these three types of events.
The insurance obligation also applies to shared accommodation.
The inventory of fixtures is a written document, drawn up in duplicate (one for the tenant, the other for the residence). It gives a precise description of the rented accommodation, as well as the furniture and equipment in it and their condition.
The inventory of fixtures serves to prove the condition in which the resident has received the premises.
Two inventories of fixtures are drawn up during the rental period: one on the arrival of the tenant, the other on his departure. If any damage is found, the residence will be entitled to deduct the amount of the repairs from the deposit.
Housing benefit is a financial aid from the state to reduce the cost of rent for accommodation. It is the most common form of assistance given to students.
The simulation is done via a questionnaire to be completed in 5 minutes. After this step you will know the amount that will be directly allocated to you.
After you have signed your lease or rental agreement.
Your entitlement starts on the first day of the month after you move in. For example, if you move in on 1 September, your entitlement will start on 1 October and you will receive your benefit the following month, i.e. in November.

The administration fee paid by the tenant on arrival covers the residence's costs in creating and managing the tenant's file throughout their stay.
On signing the lease, the tenant pays a 'security deposit', which is a sum that is kept by the manager for the duration of the tenancy. This is a reserve which the manager can draw on if, on leaving, the tenant owes him money.
The security deposit is collected.
After an inventory of fixtures, the deposit is reimbursed within two months of your departure, after deduction of any costs incurred for repairs, damage, loss or cleaning.
The security deposit cannot be used as a payment of rent under any circumstances.
Water, electricity and garbage taxes. On some of our residences the charges include only water and garbage taxes. In this case the residence manager will take care to inform you.
Council tax is established by the tax centre in the name of the persons having the disposal of the taxable premises on 1 January of the year in question, whether as owner-occupier, tenant or free occupant. Students are therefore subject to council tax for the accommodation they occupy. Council tax is paid in November.
Water and electricity consumption is, of course, not unlimited. Environmental issues affect us all and in an eco-responsible approach, we invite you to remain vigilant about energy consumption. Let's protect the world of tomorrow!
