4. Subletting an entire home when you rent a non-subsidized home
Steps to follow
- The rental of an entire home of which you are the owner is limited to a maximum of 60 days per year (beyond: violation of Article 3 paragraph 3 LDTR).
- Beyond this duration, the process constitutes a change of assignment (commercial activity), which is prohibited.
- Incidental income from the rental of a property must be declared to the tax authorities.
- People wishing to make available all or part of their accommodation must levy the tourist tax.
- Beyond the 60-day period, when the home is used regularly and continuously to host guests, the activity is considered to be exercised "in a professional capacity". It requires authorization from the Trade and Anti-Black Work Police (PCTN). Individuals may apply for a decision as to whether the activity they plan to carry on is subject to the law. In any case, beyond 60 days, people have the obligation to submit a request to be in conformity with the law (LRDBHD).
