We tell you everything about the declaration of your rental at the town hall
The decree of April 28, 2017 n° 2017-678 known as the “Airbnb decree” was published in the Official Journal on April 30. It is the concrete application of certain provisions of the law for a digital Republic of October 7, 2016, which itself complements the complex Airbnb legislation. From now on, some municipalities will be able to ask the renters to obtain a registration number when they declare to the town hall to rent on Airbnb. All the information to find out here.
Why do you have to declare your seasonal rental activity to the town hall?
The decree aims above all to give municipalities more concrete and effective means to verify that the limit of 120 rental days is respected. As a reminder, this limit of 120 days (i.e. approximately 4 months) only applies to main residences.
Registration of your Airbnb accommodation at the town hall: is it mandatory?
