The guarantor

Action Logement has set up Visale help (Ex Lokaviz). This device is a deposit given to the tenant who pays the rent and the rental charges of the principal residence in case of default of payment. This help acts as a guarantor to the owner, which you will find eligibility conditions and more information on this guide. On the other hand, Action Logement has set up Mobili-Jeune assistance which is a help for young people under 30 years of age as apprentices in the private sector.

Do not forget to check your eligibility for the deposit with the help "Caution Action Logement".

 

Deposit

A deposit equal to at least one month’s rent is usually required. The Toulouse Town Hall can provide free of interests’ credits in order to help you pay the deposit.

Health Insurance

All students should (freely) subscribe to the students’ health insurance “Sécurité Sociale” and pay a civil liability insurance “mutuelle", both mandatory.
