we are in the process of becoming owners of our dream house in France. Our offer has been accepted and now we are just going through the formalities to finalize the sale.
Unfortunately we will not be able to move for another 1 or max. 2 years.
My partner’s solution: we will just rent out the property during that time to cover the costs of maintaining the property. I am a bit sceptical if that is so easy as he thinks.
Is it an easy process to register our home as a gite and start renting it out once the sale went through? The house is in a very good condition, we will just need to buy some furniture. However we live quite far away (7 hours flight) so we cannot easily travel to France for bureaucratic issues (e.g. set up business license, etc.)
Is there anyone that has some experience with this and can advise us?
Thank you in advance.
