Each of you can be part of the Colocation-City adventure.
The first step is to contact Colocation City to organize the visits of properties you might like. In order to prepare the visits, your application file must already be ready. It must contain the following documents
Once your file is validated, Colocation City will send you the lease. When the lease is signed by the 2 parties, the roommate agrees with the landlord on a date for the inventory of fixtures which takes place on the day of the move-in and the handing over of the keys. During the inventory of fixtures, the 2 parties check the conditions of the property and the furniture. Once signed, the roommate can move in!
Do not hesitate to contact us if you need any further information.
The roommate’s lease differs from the classic rental lease in that it differentiates the private part from the common part.
The private part is the room and the bathroom of the roommate. He is the only one who has the key to this space and is the only one responsible for any damage to this space. The common area corresponds to everything that is not the private area: living room, dining room, kitchen, laundry room, common toilet… This area is the responsibility of all roommates. This is why each roommate, through a charter described in his lease, agrees to use the property as a good father (responsible person) and not to voluntarily damage a common property or belonging to others.
The payments include 2 elements: the rents and the charges (For information, the charges can have two different characters:
In the charges, Colocation City includes :
Each roommate is only responsible for his rent and the charges stipulated in the lease. If a roommate leaves during the year and there are several rooms available, the TCC rent of the roommates is obviously not altered.
If the property is rented furnished, the lease term is 1 year. The co-tenant or the landlord can terminate the lease at any time by notifying the other party by registered mail with acknowledgement of receipt at least 1 month before the termination date. If no one comes forward before the anniversary date of the lease, it is tacitly renewed.
Colocation-City properties (houses or apartments) are eligible for housing aid called ALS. You must however respect the conditions required by the CAF to be able to benefit from it, i.e. be the holder of the rental contract, pay rent and be a tenant of this accommodation for a minimum period of 8 months.
To apply for housing assistance, fill out your housing assistance application online or download the form and send it to your CAF by mail.
For example, if the TV in the living room is broken in a 4-bedroom house with 4 roommates, each roommate will pay 1/4 of the cost to replace the TV.
The amount of the deposit depends on the property and is usually 1 month’s rent. This amount is used to pay for damages caused by the roommate in his private space.
When the common space is damaged by the roommates, the amount of the repairs is shared and everyone pays in proportion to the number of rooms they occupy.
On the other hand, if a roommate is responsible for the destruction of the TV and if he/she comes to Colocation City to pay the totality of the replacement costs, the other roommates will not be deducted from their deposit.
It goes without saying that the damage caused by a disaster (water damage…) is taken into account either by the tenant’s insurance or by the owner’s insurance depending on the nature of the damage.
