Attention Apartment Owners

Are Short Term Paris Apartment Rentals Legal?

Yes, under certain conditions.

Owners have the right to rent their principal residence, when they are not occupying it, up to 4 months a year. These 4 months can be divided into 17 weeks or smaller stays that are not necessarily grouped together. Owners have the right to rent short term their secondary residence in Paris under certain conditions as well. – If the apartment is rented permanently the owner must change the usage of the apartment to commercial in nature. If the apartment is not already under this statute then the owner must proceed with this change.

What is the « numéro d’enregistrement » or “registration number”?

When you rent your apartment by the month or week, the law in some countries and regions requires that you declare these rentals to a specific authority in the city where your property is located.

In France, this implies that the property is automatically registered with the « Registre du Tourisme » or “Tourism Registry” and your property or properties will be given a number known as the « numero d’enregistrement » or “registration number”.

The information hereby is given as a courtesy by Guest Apartment Services Paris. We are not responsible if it is inaccurate or not updated. Guest Apartment Services Paris recommends that you check with the local authorities in order to verify that you are in accordance with the laws of the region where your property is located.
