Bail de 5 ans terme fixe

My daughter is visiting an apartment with "Bail de 5 ans terme fixe.

Can someone explain what it actually means - have checked and have answers that vary differently. They haven't been here that long and have had real problems finding a flat but obviously they don't want to tie themselves down to having to be liable for renting for a 5 year period, especially if the job doesn't work out..

Many thanks

Lease 5 year, fixed term.

What is not to understand about that?

It is more about the implications if they wanted to leave the apt. if for example my son in law lost his job and couldn't find another one so had to leave the country. They have been told different answers so wanted to clarify.

Thank you Curley for the link - I shall run it through translate

well, they can leave the country, but still pay for the remaining portion of the 5 years....


...or find someone to take their place.

Yes, but is it something that a new tenant would avoid doing, if for instance there was say 3 years left ? Do people tend to just want 1 year tenancies and avoid longer ones?
