In France, the fees that the tenant pays to the real estate agency are regulated by Law Alur.
The amount of these fees cannot be above of none of limits below:
- fees paid by landlord
- limits indicated by Law Alur
The real estate agency can just invoice these services:
- Visit’s organization
- Dossier’s collection
- Lease contract redaction
- Check-in inventory
For the three first concepts, the fee charged depends on the localization of the property. In areas like Paris and surroundings, the fee limit is 12€/M2 of useful area. Fee for the check-in inventory is at 3€/M2 of useful areal. This means agency fees should not be above 15€/M2 of useful area.
The payment of agency fees is exigible at the signature of the lease and are usually paid by cheque.
