The Real Estate Department of SENEX Private Detective collects evidence on behalf of individuals and professionals, owners, landlords or tenants. Its areas of expertise are varied: non-compliance with a Law 48 lease, abusive breach of lease, squatting or neighborhood disturbance.
In terms of rental of residential premises, professional premises or commercial premises, the SENEX Private Detective agency intervenes to carry out pre-rental inquiries, to help with the recovery of unpaid rent, to find a tenant who has left without paying or to collect the proof of a prohibited sublet.
Unpaid rent can have serious consequences, for example if a rental investment has been made and the rents are supposed to cover the repayment of the mortgage.
So the owner can quickly find himself in an uncomfortable and risky financial situation. Also, it is important to be very responsive in such cases and to collect unpaid rents as quickly as possible.
If the tenant is still in the premises, it is possible to summon him or his surety for the payment of unpaid rents, then to execute his enforceable title.
In the event that the tenant left the accommodation in a hurry, at the wooden bell, or at the end of his lease without paying his rent in full or causing significant damage to the premises, his address will have to be found beforehand. .
Subletting of any premises is prohibited unless expressly stated otherwise in the lease. However, it turns out that tenants regularly resort to subletting, in particular since the arrival in France of peer-to-peer rental platforms such as Air BNB or Abritel.
Also, many tenants sublet their accommodation even though this is prohibited. This causes two main drawbacks: abnormal wear and tear of the living quarters and common areas because occasional tenants are less respectful than a title tenant in general, a real nuisance for the neighborhood because the comings and goings at different times of the part of people loaded with luggage or alcoholic create nuisances sometimes unbearable.
SENEX Private Detective collects evidence of these subleases in order to defend the interests of its landlord and owner clients.
Insufficient occupation law 48
Voted on September 1, 1948 to counter the lack of housing in France after the war, Law 48 on residential leases offers a double advantage to the tenants in title: a very low rent increase each year and the possibility of legally transferring their lease. to one of his children.
Also, the homes currently rented under Law 48 have rents well below the market price and the tenants in title are sometimes
tempted to take advantage of the situation such as subletting their home or using it as a pied-à-terre or second home.
However, the law provides that a tenant can benefit from law 48 housing only for his main residence. Consequently, if the accommodation is occupied for less than half of the year by the tenant, the lessor is entitled to request the termination of the lease.
SENEX Private Detective intervenes in order to provide the necessary evidence to the lessor to prove that the legal rental conditions are no longer respected by the lessee.
To minimize the risk of non-payment, it is important to choose the right tenant, even if it means carrying out a pre-rental survey about them.
His personal situation is checked by detectives from the SENEX agency and the documents provided in his rental file are also analyzed and verified.
The legal existence of the company that employs him is verified, the position of the person is checked as well as his seniority. Finally, SENEX Private Detective ensures that the rental candidate does not benefit from an accomplice within the target company to deceive the lessor.
Checks are made on the surety, joint surety or simple surety: verification of direct and indirect assets, verification of official income, etc.
Tenant left without paying
Address research is one of the specialties of SENEX Private Detective. A tenant who left without paying conceals his new address to prevent his landlord from taking legal action.
The first step in collecting unpaid rents is therefore to find the address of the tenant who has left without paying. SENEX investigators provide the result of their investigation within ten working days.
Once the new address has been found, it is possible to summon the tenant in payment of the unpaid rents. The search for one’s patrimony then makes it possible to proceed with the execution of an enforceable title in the event of forced execution.
Abusive breach of lease
If the SENEX Detective agency intervenes on behalf of the lessor in the context of non-compliance with a Law 48 lease, it may be mandated by a lessee in the event of an abusive breach of lease.
A lessor can refuse the extension of the lease of his tenant in various cases and in particular when the owner or one of his parents wishes to live in the accommodation as his main residence.
However, it turns out that the tenant sometimes ultimately reports that the conditions for breach of the lease have not been met. For example, that the repossessed home is not inhabited or has been sold.
SENEX Detective then collects the evidence necessary to defend the interests of the former tenant so that he can obtain compensation for his damage.
Expulsion from a squat
Anyone who has had to deal with squatting in their home knows how complicated this situation is to manage because the law is clearly in favor of squatters.
Also, we must react quickly to such a situation at the risk of seeing the situation drag on for several years and its good deteriorating.
SENEX Private Detective brings its know-how to the owners by investigating to determine the conditions of arrival of the squatters, by identifying by name the squatters present in the places then by determining when the squat is abandoned in order to recover the places as quickly as possible.
Relations between neighbors can sour and lose all reason. The intervention of a third party or even a magistrate then becomes necessary to resolve the problems.
SENEX Private Detective works to identify the perpetrators of neighborhood disturbances and collect evidence of the disturbances caused in order to support the allegations of its clients in order to convince the magistrate.
