PARIS 31% OF LANDLORDS DO NOT RESPECT RENT CONTROLS ACCORDING TO THE ABBÉ PIERRE FOUNDATION

Up to 31% of Parisian landlords do not respect the rent control in the capital, according to figures from the observatory of the Abbé Pierre Foundation unveiled this Thursday, October 27. The positive point according to her? This is 4 points less than last year.

Implemented in Paris since 2019, the rent control “is still applied very unevenly”, raises this Thursday by the Abbé Pierre Foundation, which estimates that “31% of the advertisements analyzed by the observatory this year exceed the rent- legal ceiling”, against 35% last year.

SOME SMALL PROGRESS SINCE 2019

“Now is the time to strengthen the control of compliance with this useful law, too long neglected by the State”, says the observatory, which is delighted – despite the “low number of fines drawn up against offending owners” – “to see many local authorities taking up the subject”.

This is the case in Paris, where the municipality has asked the regional prefecture to transfer to it the responsibility for controls and sanctions for rent management. “Three years after its entry into force, the rent control is better respected”, welcomed Ian Brossat this Thursday.

For the deputy mayor of Paris in charge of housing, “there are nevertheless abuses, especially on small surfaces” in great demand in the capital, but the objective is that “soon” the City of Paris can “sanction the owners who cheat”.

In January 2021, the elected communist already announced a strengthening of controls, with two new tools. The first aimed to carry out random checks of advertisements offered by real estate agencies. The second was to set up a computer verification system, capable – when placing the advertisement on an online site – of detecting rents that are too high.

And even if everything is not perfect, professionals in the sector assure that the rent control would indeed have had a “modifying effect” on property prices in the capital, with rents increasing by only 0.6 % in Paris for all tenants. The first “positive effects of rent control” that can be measured “today”, according to Ian Brossat
