Frequently asked questions
You have a question? We might have the answer!
Sharing a home can be a source of concern and questioning. Find below advices, answers and tips to the most frequent subjects.
What is homesharing?
Homesharing is the principle of living with others in the same accommodation. The reasons for making this choice are specific to each and everyone, but here are some advantages: the possibility of saving money by sharing the rent and common costs, the opportunity to move to a new region, be closer to your family or simply maintain social bounds. Sharing a roof is an alternative for those who are independent and no longer want to live alone.
I am not the landlord of my accommodation. Am I allowed to do so? How should I proceed?
If you are currently a tenant of your accommodation and you would like to share it with one or more people, we advise you to make sure with your landlord that you respect your lease agreement.
