In some French cities, the offer of living spaces is limited and demand for rental housing is high. These cities may now impose restrictions on the level of rents in the free sector. This certainly applies to the city of Paris. The principles of this regulation of prices in the market for rental properties are laid down in the so-called ELAN law. In a nutshell, the city of Paris now determines what maximum rent you may ask as a homeowner. And with a change of tenant you can only increase the rent within a certain bandwidth. New rental contracts in which the rental price does not fall within the limits set by the city of Paris are now invalid. If you want to know more about this, please contact us.
