It is common practise in France that the landlords also ask for a guarantor (French resident) to cover a potential risk of non-payment of the rental, especially if they rent to students/ or to foreign citizens without an income in France. Foreign guarantors are usually refused by the landlord due to the difficulties in judicial procedures.
Landlords often require a bank guaranty (cautionnement bancaire). This service usually costs an annual fee of 1% to 2% of the deposited sum plus setting-up fees.
