The Lessee seeking to rent a furnished property can consult the Website for offers published by Paris Attitude at any time. It has a search engine allowing catalogue results to be filtered and access to be gained to the main information concerning the Properties Offered, in particular: geographic location, price, description of the property with several photos, availability and the opinions left of previous lessees if applicable.
- Selection of properties offered and Rental Request:
The Lessee is able to send a Rental Request with no charge applying to Paris Attitude. He/she may attach a selection of up to five (5) of the Properties Offered. Paris Attitude undertakes to treat this request by verifying the availability of the Properties Offered selected by the Lessee, by searching other similar properties or those corresponding to the search criteria of the Lessee if necessary, and to take all necessary steps for the formation of the Rental Contract.

- Lessee Space:

These details, once registered, are used for each new Rental Request.

Use of the Website by the Lessor
- Listing (referencing) a Property Offered:
the Lessor has the option of sending a request for having his/her property listed via a form on the Website. On receipt, Paris Attitude reserves the right to judge if the property presented sufficiently satisfies the policy of internal quality which has been set, based both on objective criteria of equipment, state and geographic location of the property on one hand, and on the other on subjective criteria such as decoration and style. If the property satisfies the preliminary test, a second evaluation takes place during a physical visit from a Paris Attitude representative during the course of which the agent will draw up a detailed inventory of the property and will take photos, thus allowing a property page to be created and published on the Website. To finalise the listing, the Lessor candidate and Paris Attitude sign a contract giving Paris Attitude a mandate to offer the property for rent. All rules governing this contractual relation are contained in said mandate. The mandate is signed by hand between the Lessor and the Paris Attitude agent.
- Classifying of a property in the search results:
classification of a Property Offered in the search results depends in part on the search criteria entered by the Lessor and of the score allocated to this property by Paris Attitude at the time of the search. This score varies from day to day, allowing the most pertinent results possible be brought to the Lessor. It is calculated in particular thanks to the date of the last updating of the calendar of available property, the rate of cancellations of rentals confirmed by the Lessor, and the type of mandate to which he or she is subscribed with Paris Attitude.
- De-listing a property:
Paris Attitude or the Lessor can decide at any time to stop the execution of the mandate they have concluded. Rules regarding termination are specified in said mandate. Consequently, Paris Attitude will cancel the display of the Property Offered in the search results of its Website.
- Owner Space:
The Owner Space allows the Lessor to manage his/her property or properties listed on the Website, his/her Rental Offers and profile: :
. Management of Property Offered: the Lessor can independently manage the updating of the availability of their property. The Lessor can also easily make contact with the agent in charge of his/her property to amend the list of equipment, amend the amount of rent or ask for de-listing of a property
. Management of Rental Offers: the Lessor can accept or refuse a Rental Offer from their own space.
