Looking for roommate starting July/Aug 2012, 80 m2 apt. in Paris 13th :
My roommate and I are looking for a replacement roommate in a 3-people-shared-apartment we’ve been living in for 2 years now.
The apartment is 80m2, and is located at Gobelins (halfway between rue Mouffetard and Place d’Italie) in Paris 13th.
now we’re 3 roommates (1 female, 2 male) but the other guy will be
leaving soon (July/August 2012), so we’re looking for a new roommate
There are 3 bedrooms, one bathroom, one kitchen and one
living room (all separated rooms), and of course the next roommate will
get the bedroom my soon ex-roommate currently lives in.
The available room has a nice wooden floor, and is on the yard side, within a very bright apartment with an ideal location.
is approx. 550€/month (including utilities/electricity/internet/etc).
The apartment wasn’t formerly furnished but each of us brought
something, so the next roommate should bring something useful also (or
buy something back from my leaving roommate), for instance a washing
machine or a microwave or a sofa, since my soon ex-roommate might take
My leaving roommate would leave taking all his stuff
back, which means his room would not be furnished at all (to be
discussed with him directly).
Since the rental contract has
already been settled, there’s no agency fees to pay, but the contract
has to be updated with the new roommate so the agency charges 200€ for
this, and of course there is a 500€ safety deposit (caution) to be made.
A garantor (garant) is required. For foreigners with no French
garantor, please check out the government garantor service, called
"LocaPass" (the garantor for you would be a bank, using the LocaPass
Basically we’re looking for somebody from our age (23-30
years old), preferably a girl (guys can make it though), and somebody
who is friendly, clean and respectful of other people's space. Being a
non-French foreigner is a plus (but some French language basic skills
are required though) (provided you got everything sorted out with
paperwork and garantor and overall guarantees and whatnots), being a
!!! beware : non-smoking apartment !!!
since looking for a new roommate, dealing with paperwork and organizing
the replacement is a big deal, having said roommate leave only after a
couple of months is very frustrating for us. In other words : we're
looking for a long-term roommate (one year minimum, more is even better)
Since our roommate is leaving soon (July/August 2012), we’d
like to choose our next roommate within a month or so (which means by
the end of May 2012), in order to be ok for paperwork and whatnots.
already started to spot some possible friends for replacement, but
nothing has been settled yet, so if you’re interested (or one of your
friends is), you can message me back or call me or spread the word :
That’s pretty much it !
