Eric Donovan and wife Thanita Mahakaraket faced a challenge when they decided to relocate from London to Paris. They managed to locate many nice properties to rent, but they either received no answer or negative responses from the agents they contacted.
The likely reason for the Donovans’ trouble was their unique situation. As an entrepreneur earning revenue outside of France, Eric’s financial situation was more complicated than most people relocating into the country. Additionally, strict real estate laws in France lean heavily toward protecting tenants, causing landlords to be extremely cautious about who they will allow to rent their properties.
