I have two questions regarding taxes foncieres on a second property.
- my residence secondaire has been unoccupied since purchase as it is being renovated. Do I have to pay taxes foncieres on it?
- when finished, I will rent it out. Is the locataire liable to pay it or am I ?
I hope someone here can answer these two question.
thanks in advance
Taxe foncière is a tax on property ownership.
It is payable by the owner irrespective of who if anyone lives at the property.
Hope this helps.
it couldn’t be clearer. thank you
Yes to the first, no to the second.
Yes Geoff, I’ll third that. As a renter I’ve never paid tax fonciere. (PS that’s why I was curious about your rental’s location).
I guess the tax will be another thing to take into account when / if I buy a property.
