Once you have acquired your signed lease and tenant status, you can proceed with the incoming inventory of fixtures
DO NOT FORGET :
The inventory of fixtures is a document signed by the tenant and the owner or manager, which defines the state of the housing in a manner agreed upon by both the tenant and the owner or manager at the time that the keys to the housing are handed over to the tenant. It is a kind of "snapshot" of the state of the housing before you move in. We will give you the keys at that time.
Please Note : we do not keep spare keys in case yours are lost or stolen. In such a case, the replacement of the locks will be your responsibility.
The outgoing inventory of fixtures will take place upon your departure and the returning of the keys to us. In the absence of this document, you may be liable for damage left by the previous tenant. So that your departure takes place in the best possible conditions, you can prepare the outgoing inventory of fixtures.
• Make an appointment for the inventory, if possible on the day you return the keys. Take care to have emptied the apartment of your furniture and personal items and do (or have done) FULL cleaning of the lodging. • Have the water meter indexes noted. These appear on individual meters in the case of collective supply. • Lastly, return the keys after indicating on the keys their number and use (building door, mailbox ...).
Comprehensive home insurance policy
To be covered in the case of a possible accident, the tenant has the obligation to take out (for the duration of the lease) a comprehensive home insurance policy from a reputable insurance company.
The tenant may be requested to present this document at any time.
Insuring one’s residence against rental risks is an obligation. Otherwise, the owner has the right to terminate the lease without any further formality
You must therefore present a certificate of insurance before signing your lease, then each year at the request of the lessor. The Lessor may not require you to take out a policy with a particular insurance company. You can choose the insurer you wish.
Many insurance companies, banks and student health insurance programmes offer very competitive insurance rates for "comprehensive home insurance coverage" designed specifically for students. These policies cover the risks of fire, explosion, water damage, and theft ...
Personal liability is very important.
Special rates are offered to students who often have low incomes.
The price of the policy is an important criterion, but be sure to choose the level of coverage that best suits you: The deductible, coverage for furniture, coverage exclusion clauses ... are all factors to consider.
Insurance premiums vary according to:
- The category of housing - The location of the residence - The furniture covered - The number of occupants
