Cancellation and notice


Calculation of notice periods


Notice periods are expressed in calendar months.

In accordance with Article 641 of the Code of Civil Procedure, the period expires on the day of the last month or the last year bearing the same date as the day of the act that causes the period to run. In the absence of an identical date, the time limit expires on the last day of the month. When a time limit is expressed in months and days, the months are first counted, then the days.

Here are a few examples:


Public holidays and weekends are included in this calculation: if the notice period ends on a Sunday, it ends on that day, and not on the previous Friday or the following Monday.

This method of calculating the notice period applies both to the cancellation policy (see below) before the start of a rental and to the vacation given by the tenant during the rental period.

Cancellation before the start of the rental


For all rentals of less than one year with a date to date lease (civil law lease or mobility lease), the tenant may cancel the lease before the date of entry into the premises.

For a one-year tacitly renewable lease subject to the provisions of Title I bis of Law n°89-462 of July 6, 1989, the cancellation of the lease contract is not possible.

Any tenant who cancels his rental must imperatively notify the lessor and confirm his cancellation directly on the site from his user account (Rentals > Other options > Cancel this rental). A cancellation is official only after having clicked on the Confirm cancellation button and after reception by the tenant of a confirmation e-mail from MorningCroissant.

The notice period in case of cancellation is 1 calendar month.

If the Tenant cancels his rental at least 1 month before the rental start date (French time), he will receive a refund of 100% of the rent.
Example: a cancellation made before 11:59 pm on April 1st for a rental start date scheduled for May 1st, entitles the Tenant to a refund of 100% of the rent.

If the Tenant cancels his rental less than 1 month before the rental start date (French time), he will receive a refund of 100% of the amount of rent cancelled more than 1 month after the cancellation date.
Example: a cancellation made before 11:59 pm on April 24th for a rental start date scheduled for May 1st, entitles the Tenant to a refund of 100% of the rent beyond May 24th and 0% of the rent from May 1st to May 24th.

MorningCroissant service fees are not refundable.

Notice during the rental period


The Tenant may give notice to the Landlord at any time during the rental period with a notice period of 1 month.

When a tenant gives notice, he must pay the rent and charges until the end of the notice period.

The notice period runs from the day the tenant deposits his notice on MorningCroissant from his user account (Rentals > Other options > Give notice). This action automatically triggers the notification of the vacation to the landlord electronically.
In the case of a 1-year tacitly renewable lease (ALUR lease), the leave must be delivered to the lessor by registered mail, by bailiff or delivered by hand.

It is forbidden for the Tenant to deduct the amount of his security deposit from his last rentals. During the last month of the notice period, the rent due by the Tenant is determined in proportion to the number of days remaining in the month.

MorningCroissant service fees are not refundable.
