Yes, this is an enormous problem. if the couple do not want to rent their property, it's possible to set up an SCI but if they do, there is currently no option (SCI Is not a good vehicle for owning furnished property). Right now it's a grey area and all the Notaire's I spoke to said that it had no resolution as the law currently stands. I hope this will be addressed soon. Good luck.



I am an independent French Law Consultant based in the UK and I had to deal with such issue last month.

There is no miracle solution but fortunately, I was able to find a loophole which allow to avoid setting up an SCI. For obvious reasons I cannot explain the legal mecanism involved but please feel free to drop me a line if you need assistance.

Best Wishes,
