New rules for rental properties in France

In the News

New rules from the 2021 Climat et Résilience bill mean that a property must be classed as “decent” if it is a long term rental. This only applies to new contracts though, so it doesn’t include properties which are already rented out. To be classed as “decent”, a property must consume less than 450kWh/m² per year. This may throw a spanner in the works of a well laid out plan to earn extra income through a rental, but there is a handy solution on offer as renovation grants have been extended! 

Primary residences and long-term rental properties can benefit from the MaPrimeRénov’ grant (subject to meeting the necessary criteria). The overall budget for this grant has even been increased from 2 billion to 2.45 billion euros, meaning there are more funds available than before. Applicants who benefit from the Ma Prime Rénov’ Sérénité grant will need to register with a Mon Accompagnateur Rénov’, an approved professional who will assist private individuals with their renovation work - hopefully making it as stress free an experience as possible!
