  • Visale Plan (e.g. Clé - Crous’ Caution Locative Étudiante on Lokaviz)
    The Visale (Visa pour le Logement et l’Emploi, or Accomodation and Work Visa) is a form of assistance applicable when signing a lease (selectra will help you with this), and means that if you’re under 30, you don’t need a guarantor - that’s the role the plan plays. This assistance is conditional, subject in particular to the property’s total amount of rent, which can’t exceed €1,500 in the Paris region or €1,300 in the rest of France. It’s always advised you contact the dedicated hotline (0970 800 800) to find out more details, so you can create your application.

  • The bail mobilité (the mobility lease)
    This plan is for people struggling to find a place to stay on a short-term basis. The mobility lease allows both lodgers and property owners to sign more flexible leases for furnished lodgings than the traditional furnished lease.
