The tenants of a building in Essonne whose facade’s brickwork crumbled last year have been exempted from paying rent until full restoration is completed. This is not the first case of such a measure in the face of unsuitable living conditions.
There was good news for those letting property in France this week, as the amount landlords can increase rents grew at the fastest rate since 2014. On top of this, the outer Paris arrondissements are seeing fast rent growth.
The decision by prime minister Manuel Valls to limit the rent caps to Paris and Lille has been deemed illegal by the Council of State, after a case was brought by the leader of the Ecology party Julien Bayou. What does this mean for rents in France?
A parliamentary report has shown that since the Paris rent caps were introduced a year and a half ago, only 90 cases have been brought against landlords by tenants. A fairly smooth transition for what was predicted to be a very contentious measure.
A recent survey aimed to gauge the effect of the 2014 ALUR laws on those renting property in Paris. Half of the respondents claim a significant effect on their activity, while one in ten have taken their rental property off the market altogether.
