What equipment is necessary to rent out a “furnished” apartment?

Are you the owner of an apartment that you want to rent out? Have you asked yourself how to equip your apartment in order to rent it out as furnished for all or part of the year ?

Here are some of Lodgis’ tips on how to equip your property before listing it for rent...

1/ Required elements

After having some what defined the conditions for renting a furnished property in 2014 ("decent accommodation equipped with sufficient quantity and quality of furniture to enable the tenant to sleep, eat and live there decently with regard to the requirements of the everyday life" (article 25-4)), the ALUR law went further in August 2015 thanks to a decree establishing the list of compulsory furniture and equipment for renting out a furnished property as a main residence.
Since then, all accommodations must have the following 11 pieces of furniture and equipment to be offered as a furnished rental:

équipements obligatoires pour louer meublé

Good to know: If the judge considers that the provided furniture in the accommodation is insufficient for the tenant to move in immediately and comfortably, they can requalify the furnished rental as an unfurnished rental.

2/ Complimentary equipment

Even if respecting this list of the 11 obligatory furniture and appliances is enoughto list a furnished rental accommodation, at Lodgis, we encourage owners to improve the standard of their property by equipping it with additional furniture and appliances. Indeed, this will allow them to rent it more easily and at the best price.
Tenants particularly appreciate: an ironing board and iron, small appliances (suchas a toaster, coffee maker, kettle, hair dryer, etc.), cable channels, home cinema,dryer, air conditioning, cleaning service, etc.
