You wish to train or study in France for a couple of months, or as a landlord you wish to rent to foreigners in your area, then think no more, Emmanuel MACRON has thought of you creating a new lease called the mobility lease or “bail mobilité”.

Here is a quick article to learn more about this new lease.

Since when is this new lease applicable?

Since the 24th of November 2018.

Who is it for?

Students, professional training, business trips, apprenticeship, internship…

Length of the lease:

Between 1 and 10 moths.

It cannot be renewed.

If the tenant wishes to stay, he/she will have to sign another type of lease called “bail habitation pour logement meublé”

What should you find in the lease?

The usual information that makes sense to find in any lease plus a clear description of the leased premises, private amenities which the tenants have sole access to, a listing of the building’s sections, and amenities which are communal.

Rent shall include all the recoverable costs and cannot be changed during the lease.

The reason for using a mobility lease has to be stated in the lease.

Are there any forbidden provisions in the lease?


A deposit cannot be requested.

Any solidarity provision between flatmates or their guarantors is illegal.

What should the premises be equipped with?

The premises rented under this lease is supposed to be fully furnished.

Therefore, the landlord should provide the following:

A bed/mattress-linen

Curtains/ shutters,


Oven or microwave,



Table and chairs,


Vacuum cleaner…

When do I have to send my notice if I wish to leave?

In theory tenants can leave at any time during the lease they wish even though the landlord cannot and have to respect the length of the lease.

However, tenants need to send a notice a month in advance and they have to pay rent until the end of the notice.

BEWARE: the lease is over when the notice IS RECEIVED BY THE LANDLORD, not on the date tenant sends the letter.

The notice MUST BE SENT by recorded delivery with receipt slip or by bailiff.

PLEASE NO EMAILS as it is not legally valid under French law.
