January’s announcement of a new mandatory property declaration for all owners of French residential property has caused some confusion both from readers and the wider French population.

Around 34 million homeowners will need to complete the form (online or by phone) by June 30.

Here, we list previous articles which can help and include the contents alongside so you find the information you may need quickly.

  • An in-depth look at the form’s contents, an overview as to why the form has been introduced and what to do about adding new contents to your property including how to declare additional aspects such as garages, parking spaces, and basements/cellars
  • A list of common questions about the form from our subscribers. We look at help for SCI owners, those who rent their property out, and cases where there may be errors in pre-filled information on the site
  • Where to get help, with sections dedicated to residents and non-residents in France. This article also provides links to find your numéro fiscal, and links to the government’s own FAQ form in English for the declaration. It also explains why you may have trouble contacting authorities via telephone.
  • A step-by-step guide, with photos, on the form. This article will help explain the procedure to everybody who already has access to the online space. If you cannot get access to the space, you should look through the above articles to either create your space, or contact the authorities to help you to do so.

The deadline for completion of this form is June 30 although the authorities have confirmed that fines (in theory €150 for each non declared property) will not be imposed until January 1, 2024. Reminders are expected to be issued for those who do not complete the form.
