I am in the process of searching for an apartment. Some rental agencies have asked for proof that I paid French income tax for the past 2 years - which I don't have, because I just moved to France. Without this proof, my "tenant file" will not be accepted by those agencies and I will not be able to rent the apartment from them.
Have any of you experienced this situation? If yes, do you know of any way to get around this?
Was your new job trial period also a problem for getting your file accepted?
Any info / advice would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
