Profitable second homes at last : French Joint Ownership Tourism Scheme (CRT)
A Copropriété Résidentielle de Tourisme or French Joint Ownership Tourism Scheme (CRT) is a small luxury residence offering very spacious villas, chalets or apartments (CRT was created and patented by the Terrésens Group).
CRT was created for homeowners who really want to enjoy their second homes – while also making sure that the properties are financially viable by renting them out at their convenience – and, of course, avoid the stress of managing the tourist residence or aparthotel.
CRT means FREEDOM OF CHOICE and PROFITABILITY
Every year as a homeowner …
… I can occupy my second home whenever I like for up to 6 months a year. (1)
… I am free to maximise my rental income by deciding to occupy it only a little.
FISCAL ADVANTAGES : I reclaim the VAT (20%) on the purchase amount.(2)
CRT means SIMPLICITY and EFFICIENCY
Freedom of choice and simple stress-free management.
