It is a good option for someone who is looking to limit their budget without limiting their comfort, and who likes to live in a community.

Flatshare is governed by specific rules. Within the framework of the lease contract, there are two possibilities: a single rental lease or a lease per co-tenant. Depending on the type of contract, certain rules differ:



The single lease


It is a classic rental lease whose rules differ according to the category of accommodation: furnished or not. Similarly, the accommodation must respect a minimum surface area (9m² or 20m3 minimum).

  • All roommates must sign the lease in order to have rights to the accommodation.

  • The inventory must be made and signed in the presence of all the roommates.

  • The rent is paid in one go and shared amicably by the roommates.

  • A solidarity clause can be integrated into the lease and implies obligations towards the others in the event of the departure of one of the roommates.


The lease per roommate


It respects the same basic rules as a classic lease, furnished or not.

  • Each roommate signs a lease contract with the landlord.

  • Each roommate pays their rent independently to the landlord.

  • A deposit may be requested from each roommate.

  • The departure of one of the roommates is simplified and does not commit him to the others.
