Seasonal lease

All rentals contract must be in written form and contain the indication of the asking price and a description of the places (article L.324 - 2 of the Code of tourism). It must be established in two copies for each party.
 The contract, which the reader will find a model in the annex, shall include the following information:

•the identities of the lessor and the lessee;
•the address of the premises rented;
•the duration of the lease and the hours of departure and arrival;
•the price which is fixed freely by the hirer;
•any expenses in addition to the rent;
•the amount of the deposit or the deposit;
•the amount of the deposit guarantee or surety to pay and the way;
•the amount of the tax.

Seasonal lease must be accompanied by a descriptive State and it is advisable also to convey to the tenant a copy of the rules of procedure of the campsite.

 The price of the stay

Seasonal rental rates are fixed freely.
 As everywhere, the prices of rentals on the last weeks of July and the first weeks of August are the most expensive. For a mobile home for 6 people, you can hire about 500 euro week campaign and up to 800 / 1,000 euros, or even more, in the resorts. In low season (may, June, September), prices are divided by two, although in some areas where demand remains strong in before and after season, the difference is less clear-cut.
 If the amount paid in advance is called ' deposit' (article 1590 of the civil Code), the future tenant will lose them if he withdraws and the owner will have to pay double if he renounces for rent.
 If the contract provides for the payment of a 'deposit', the commitment of rent is final and that cancels the stay shall indemnify the other party for the caused damage.
 Single cancellation by a case of force majeure (which jurisprudence has defined as an unpredictable and insurmountable outdoor event) could provide the tenant indemnify the landlord. It should be noted that neither disease nor death falls within the definition of force majeure adopted by the jurisprudence.

 Tourist tax

In some tourist or thermal municipalities, may be asked to tenants a tourist tax. This tax, lump sum or not, is due per person and per day and varies depending on the level of comfort and classification of the campsite. Fixed tourist tax, is per person, per night of stay, between EUR 0,2 to 1,5 euro (out-départementale additional fee).

The security deposit

The lessor is entitled to request a security deposit or a deposit. The amount of the deposit is fixed freely by the lessor.
 The deposit shall be returned to the tenant upon the release of places if no damage is found.
 In order to avoid disputes on amounts to be deducted from the deposit in the event of breakage, it is advisable to prepare an inventory that includes the list of objects with an assessment of the price of their replacement. A model of such an inventory is annexed.

The State of play

It is preferable to establish a State of the venues as well as an inventory of the furniture and the objects available to the tenant upon entry into the mobile home. These two documents shall be signed by the parties, dated and be drawn up in duplicate. A new State of play and a new inventory will be established at the end of stay.
 In the absence of a State of the art establishment, the common law rules apply and article 1731 civil code creates a rebuttable presumption that the tenant received the property and its accessories in good condition.

The taxation of rental income

Rentals furnished, exercised on a regular basis, is considered fiscally as a commercial activity.
 In accordance with article 34 of the general Code of taxes, revenue from the rental of a mobile home are taxed at the income tax in the category of industrial and commercial profits (BIC) and non-tax revenues. Indeed, mobile home is not fixed to the ground, it is not considered as a building.
 The individual owner of the mobile home may declare his income BIC under a regime of micro-BIC insofar as it does not exceed 32 600 euros. It will benefit from a reduction of 50% on the declared income. However, this particular may also opt for the simplified real reporting regime and file a declaration 2031 (results BIC - income tax declaration).
