Hi, some friends of ours are renting a house near us and the landlord has charged them a large security deposit which he is holding in a bank account until they leave.Since handing this over theyve read that legally the max deposit a landlord can recieve is 1 months rent.Can anyone else confirm this, and are they within their rights to ask for this back?
Hi Ive been told that it is possible to get a 200 euro payment towards the cost of central heating fuel - how does one do this and where can I get information on other potential benefits. When one of the members of a household is in receipt of a pension (woman at 60) does this mean that the television part of the tax d'habitation no longer has to be paid? Also does the household get reduced tax? I cannot seem to find any information on this subject and would like some guidance on where to search please. Thanks
Hi Just recieved our tax habitation bill with a whopping 118€ for the television tax.We only have english telly and its impossible for us to recieve french television so is there any way round this as it seems we are getting taxed for somthing a lot of people dont use or are unable to access anyway.Rant over!!!!
Hello After we completed on our house around 3 months ago, we still havn't recieved our deeds to our property.Ive rung the estate agent and notaire(although he doesn't speak English so a bit lost there) and they tell me to wait.Could anyone explain how long this takes as i would like proof of me owning my own house! Thanks
Hi to all I recently signed up to the AE scheme and shortly afterwards recieved what looked very much like a bill from 118 for 267€ for advertising on their website etc. Idid not want this and as it had my siret number on it, it looked very official with the tear off bit to include with the payment.Has anyone else recieved one of these? Just to warn people who may just pay it without looking in to it.
Im a little confused ive just got the kids enrolled in school and filled in the mountain of forms correctly ish,but now they are wanting proof of income for the past two years.ive no problem giving them this i just cant think why they would need it as now im not working as much it doesnt seem relavent anyway!!!! Thanks for any help
Hi Does anyone know how this tax is worked out?.Is it calculated on the size of your house or your main income.The reason i ask is that our bill has arrived which has gone up by 110€ to around 560€.We live in a very small commune where a friends almost identical house has a bill less than half of ours.We have a small income similar to our friends gite earnings. Does anyone know how this is calculated?
