35% of the ads published between August 2020 and August 2021 exceed the rental ceilings authorized by law, reveal the Abbé Pierre Foundation and the City of Paris on Monday. Guest from Europe Midi, the director of studies of the Abbé Pierre Foundation, Manuel Domergue, reviewed the results of this first barometer. These "are rents that are becoming aberrant," he commented.

Finding accommodation without breaking the bank in Paris is no easy task.

While the price per square meter has already reached 10,000 euros or even 13,000 euros in certain arrondissements of the capital, the Abbé Pierre Foundation and the City of Paris revealed Monday in their first barometer of compliance with the rental framework in Paris that 35 % of ads published between August 2020 and August 2021 exceed the rent ceilings authorized by law.

"The 35% of advertisements which are above [the ceilings] are really rents which become aberrant", commented Manuel Domergue, director of studies of the Abbé Pierre Foundation, at the microphone of Romain Desarbres.

No surprise: in the most expensive neighborhoods, rent control is the least respected

Who has never been confronted with these often exorbitant prices?

For a student or a young graduate with a low income, finding accommodation in the capital has become an impossible task.

"We find a greater percentage of overruns on small dwellings, studios, two rooms because we know that it is also there that there is a very strong demand", he explained on Europe Midday.

An average overrun of 196 euros per month, still according to the results of the first barometer, which is also found "in the most expensive districts", the 1st, 7th, 9th, 16th arrondissement, "where the owners know they are going find tenants even if they charge indecent rents, ”continued Manuel Domergue.

 In Paris, one in two advertisements does not respect the rent regulations

The rent framework, put in place in 2019, makes it possible to determine for each rental housing ad published online in Paris, whether it exceeds the rent ceilings in force, they specify in the publication of their study.

However, two years after its entry into force in the capital, both owners and real estate agencies would not respect the rule.

"We have the impression that this rule of rent control does not really scare the owners otherwise they would not be so many not to respect it", he judges.

"We must now move on to the next step: the step of sanctions."
