Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In France, the main reason you can be kicked out of an apartment you rent is because the owner wants to use it for personal needs, or because it gets sold (and then you still have some decent periods to stay in). These do not apply in our case.

In terms of work you can do, it depends if you rent it with furniture or not (the usual here is: without), and what agreement you can reach with the owner. Our redoings of the apartment were done with the consent of the owner, and it even contributed to some of the costs on various occasions as it could see it was improving its asset.

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes

"It" suggests that your owner is not a person but an organisation. Which might explain some of the differences in what you experienced.

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed. Gandhi
