INFORMATION OF TENANTS ON MAJOR NATURAL AND TECHNOLOGICAL RISKS: Information of citizens on major natural and technological risks is a right codified by the environment code. In particular, it must allow the citizen to know the dangers to which he is exposed. Thus Decree No. 2005-134 of February 15, 2005 sets the conditions for informing tenants of real estate in the municipality of La Clusaz, on the major natural and technological risks to which these properties may be exposed. On February 9, 2006, the prefect of Haute Savoie decided on the list of municipalities falling within the scope of this system. The List of Natural Disaster Files is attached to this order. The prefect has also decided, for each municipality concerned, the elements allowing the risk assessment to be drawn up: these elements are recorded in the municipal information file. These documents are freely available for consultation at the prefecture or town hall of the municipalities concerned and accessible on the Internet from the site www.haute-savoie.pref.gouv.fr or www.prim.net. In the event of a dispute, the Court of Annecy is recognized as having sole jurisdiction.
