We own a property in France which originally belonged to my parents. For the last 30 years they have used it themselves but also lent it to family and friends, free of charge. My mother died last year and we are taking the property over. We now plan to continue to lend it out to family and friends but for a nominal charge - just enough to cover water, electricity and their weekly share of the tax bill. We will make no profit on this and it will not include an amount to cover any sort of repairs. Obviously this last year has been a strange one because the house has been completely empty. Covid! But we have layed this plan for when a return to relative normality is possible.
Does any one know if we should also be charging them a daily ‘taxe de sejours’? In other words, should I be declaring the charge we are now making, to the local mairie, and adding the taxe to what we are billing guests for?
Any advice to give, anybody?
