2 – Mandatory Resort Civil Liability Insurance
The tenant will be required to insure himself with an insurance company, or to request an extension of his insurance contract taken out for his main dwelling, known as a “holiday insurance certificate”, against the risks of theft, fire, glass breakage and water damage, and more generally both for the totality of his rental risks and for the furniture rented out, as well as for recourse by neighbours.
The lessee whose main home insurance does not cover his holiday home must apply for this insurance. Time in Provence recommends its partner in order to obtain this guarantee which represents 1.5% of the rental amount.
The insurance certificate must be sent one month before your arrival at your holiday destination.
