The tenant must take out a tenant's risks insurance policy, which is MANDATORY, in France, to be covered in the event of damage caused as a result of a fire, an explosion or water damage.It's only going to cost us about €100 for the three months we'll be in Paris but our landlord wants to see our attestation - a signed letter stating we have assurance habitation before we get the keys. Our thanks to Monsieur Paul Boussard over at AGF Insurance for helping us out with this - nous remercions Paul Boussard de son aide!
P.S. Actually, the bureaucracy of getting Euros, in cash, from Travelex here in Bellevue was far greater than getting our assurance habitation!
