My husband and I are moving to Montpellier (as he will be studying a Masters for the next year). We are searching for a 2 bedroom place to rent in Centre Historique/Comedie area, however every time we contact an agent they are refusing to even consider our application because of the need for a letter of guarantee from a French citizen.
Is there anyway around this requirement? For background, we are two professionals (in our 30s) and we have tried everything (from offering to pay the full year rent up front or provide a letter of guarantee from Australia).
Are there any institutions that can provide this letter for us? Or is there a way to get a bank guarantee?
