Can we turn a basement into a place to rent it?

Verified 04 mai 2020 - Directorate for Legal and Administrative Information (Prime Minister)

No, you can't turn a basement or a cellar into an apartment to rent.

If they have a window or if you lay them out by laying a semi-buried window, they cannot be used as a dwelling because they are buried in the ground.

If you do not comply with the ban on renting, the prefect can force you to evacuate the tenants and offer them a new home.
