Risks with buying a leasehold business in France (Bail commercial)?

· Viewed 1268 times

Im looking at buying a business (fonds de commerce) in France with a rental agreement (bail commercial) that was renewed 2012. I would like to understand the risks I run losing the rental contract.

The business in France is a hotel and thus completely dependent on being able to continue in the same property for its existence. Can the landlord:

  1. Terminate contract and ask us to leave?
  2. Raise rent until the business cannot continue?
  3. Sell the property for other use?
  4. Other risks?
