The disadvantages of the classic way of flatsharing
#1- Short stay are not accepted
When you start looking for a spare room in a flatshare, you may come across one big obstacle: the interview. Since flat-sharing has become more and more popular amongst young people it is rather likely to be asked to pass an proper interview with the flatmates that are already living in the apartment. This will give them an idea of your personality, hobbies and lifestyle. And as soon as you tell them that you’re planning to stay only a couple of months, you can be sure that they’ll not be pleased. And that they’ll certainly pick someone who plans to stay longer. Especially if you consider how complex French paperwork is!
#2- A lease that is not tailored for you
Most of the leases signed whilst flatsharing are joint rental contracts. This means that when one of the occupants fails to pay, the others are responsible for the total amount of the rent and need to pay instead. And what if an occupant leaves? Once again, it will be up to the others to pay the totality of the rent and expenses. If you still have doubts about the two different types of rental contracts existing or you would like more details, check out our article on this topic, you can find it here.
#3- Couples are not accepted
In most of the flatshares, couples are generally not accepted. There are a couple of practical reasons why people don’t want to live with couples – we wrote an article about this if you want to explore this subject! So if you’re a young worker and you’re not alone… it will be twice as difficult for you to find a spare room. However, a solution exists!
