How to have a guarantor in France to rent long term
Apr 3 · 2 min read

After deciding to move to France and start a new life maybe because of the new job you got, you choose to find a long-term rental apartment or a house. Seeing as there are apartments that meet your requirements, which you probably found on an online listing portal, you contact the house owner to discuss the rental process.

It turns out that even though the landlord is excited about renting out the house, a guarantor is required especially as you are relatively new in the country and the landlord would need assurances that the rental payments would be made as and when due.

This is quite an uncomfortable position to be in as you may be able to make the payments seeing as your finances are stable or you have a regular source of income and you may not know anyone in France who is able to provide this guarantee.

Well, we have a solution for you!

Youse can provide this assurance to the property owner through a solidary guarantee.

Similar to the role of a guarantor who is also called a surety, who accepts the responsibility of paying the rent and other charges if you (the tenant or lessee) is unable to make the payment, Youse chooses to pay the rent monthly helping you build a better credit rating profile with the property owner.

You are just 3 steps away from having a guarantor!

First step:

Get your guarantee certificate for free.

Once you submit your request and send all the documents needed, Youse gives you the certificate within 24 hours. This certificate is valid for 3 months during which time you can search for accommodation if you are yet to find one.

Second step:

Youse operates as a physical guarantor with the property owner or the real estate agency. If the event of unpaid rent, Youse continues to pay the owner.

Third step:

Youse is not a simple guarantor, acting as an intermediate between you and the owner. They undertake to pay the rent directly to the owner at a fixed date.

There are a few documents needed to complete this process such as:

  • an identity document
  • bank statements for the previous three months
  • proof of income

As long as you have the financial capacity to pay the rent to be it 400 EUR or 3500 EUR, are able to meet the requirements and provide the necessary documents, Youse is here to provide a guarantee for you. This service is free until you are able to find accommodation after which the fee of 3.8% of the rental cost is due when the rental agreement is signed.
