Leasing: Is it really this way in Nice (France)?
I am trying to lease a flat in Nice, but was very surprised by the terms offered.
They said they wanted €16.200 in a locked French bank account as a security deposit. It equates to one year of lease. In addition there were the normal agency and "other" deposits.
I was told that this will be the way it is for anyone who is not French.
Can someone please help educate me???
