Settling in a new city for a long-term period can be extremely exciting: new horizons, new projects and new apartment awaiting just for you. To feel at home, what’s better than a new unfurnished apartment letting you the freedom to express your personality and creativity? In this post, Lodgis gives you some advice to guide you through your unfurnished rentals search.
1. Optimize your search
Maximize your chance to find the ideal unfurnished rental implies having very precise criteria in mind (type of property, surface area, arrondissement, near public transports etc.) as well as knowing how to prioritize them.
We strongly recommend that you rank your criteria by clear order, going from what seems crucial to what can be adjusted. This way, you will bear a clear and organized idea in mind allowing you to optimize your unfurnished rentals search.
You can also fill up the contact form in which you can detail the type of unfurnished rental you’re looking for, to our team which will contact you later on.
2. Subscribe to e-mail alerts
It’s possible to find the rare gem right away but most of the time the search, whether it’s through internet or agencies, can take some time. If you would like to find the perfect unfurnished rental as soon as possible, what’s better than subscribing to an e-mail alert?
This tool allows you to receive new ads of rentals available on the market and meeting your criteria. However, please note that while filling out the e-mail alert form, it’s important to stick to the general and crucial criteria of your list (type of accommodation, surface area, number of bedrooms etc…) because if you are too precise in your criteria or if you ask for services that are pretty rare in France (for instance, the A/C), you will have way less chances to receive offers corresponding to what you’re looking for.
3. Prepare your dossier
Better play safe than sorry so that if you have a real crush for an unfurnished rental in Paris, you can communicate your dossier quickly and easily.
To avoid carrying your documents everywhere with you, don’t hesitate to scan them and send them to Lodgis, or even uploading them on a usb key. Please note that you’ll only need the following documents:
- an ID or passport
- proof of address
- your three last payslips and your work contract
- your three last rent receipt
4. Visualize and visit the unfurnished rental of your choice
You have the possibility to visualize and to get a clear idea of your future property through diverse means nowadays. Lodgis thought about everything and doesn’t stop innovating regarding tours and photos so that you know exactly what to expect before even going.
The virtual tour system allows you to enter in the apartment without being there. Furthermore, know that, in addition to the pictures taken by our team, you get a detailed map to visualize the unfurnished rental you covet in its entirety as well as a map and pictures of the neighborhood!
When you think you found your crush, don’t hesitate to contact our team to book a visit. Take the time to visit the unfurnished apartment you like and to ask all the questions related to your needs while you’re visiting. It’s always better to know too much than not enough.
5. Before your definitive move
We strongly advice that you invest yourself in the inspection and that you carefully read the lease agreement before you sign it.
It is important to take note of everything you noticed during the inspection, please note that Lodgis takes what you and the owner say into account during this visit. This way, when you’ll be moving in or leaving, if you move somewhere else after a certain time, you will know exactly what is your responsibility and what engages the owner’s.
