If you visit a house in a very bad condition, dirty, old... you can negociate « faire une proposition ».
Two options depending on the agence or owner :
- Or you negociate to renovate the house by yourself (wallpaper, painting) and you won't have to pay a "caution" (deposit);
- or you renovate the house and don't pay one or two months of rent.
It's a good deal if you know how to paint a wall and don't have a lot of money. Owners usually let you do all the work and then the « état des lieux » is made once all is clean.
