In order to submit visa application for Long stay in France,one must submit a copy of a Lease,deed or a "Promise to Lease",to prove that you have accomadations before you arrive.
The "promise of lease" seems to be what we need simply because we don't want to put a deposit on apartment until we're officially approved,of course after we're approve we would be willing to sign the actual lease documents via fax and then submit a deposit. (of course we would need to see some photos and have all the details in the contract)
We're unable to find any detail information on this "promise to lease"
If anyone has any knowledge on this subject would be grateful for any help you can offer.
We're looking for a small apartment in NICE area.
