Forward for a little light. - Work allowed without authorization Good news for those who wish to revamp their bathroom while being tenants! There are many small jobs that do not require authorization. Apply a new paint, replace an old vinyl floor, install a wall shelf, install tiles, drill a few holes in the walls to fix a piece of furniture… All these small adjustments are allowed provided that the rented property is not too distorted.

Hence the interest of being well informed beforehand! - Routine maintenance work Except in the event of a malfunction noted beforehand, it is the tenant's responsibility to ensure the routine maintenance of the equipment. Repair of worn seals, replacement of a shower hose, proper functioning of pipes… Fortunately, this type of repair is not too expensive. As long as you are careful, of course!
