This Wednesday, the Minister of the Economy Bruno Le Maire presents the draft finance law 2024 where housing represents one of the fundamental pieces. In order to free up property, the executive is seeking to create devices by amendments in the coming weeks.

Housing is one of the cornerstones of the 2024 finance bill, presented this Wednesday morning by the Minister of Economy and Finance, Bruno Le Maire. The government has announced that it is investing an additional €2 billion in the thermal renovation of housing by strengthening the MaPrimeRénov' scheme. But apart from this effort, the executive seeks above all to sort out the housing component of the finance bill by putting an end to certain devices to create others by amendments in the coming weeks.

Three measures by amendment

In 2024, the zero-interest loan for low-income households will be reserved for the purchase of new housing in tense areas or the purchase of old housing in other areas subject to renovation. And at the end of 2024, the Pinel rental investment aid scheme will be abolished. Risky trade-offs according to Henry-Buzy Cazaux, president of the Institute of Management of Real Estate Services. "There is a supply problem, there are not enough rentals, nor new or old homes bought by households. So today, we must both regenerate this sector and at the same time make budgetary savings, "he laments at the microphone of Europe 1.

Bruno Le Maire has understood it well, housing is a social bomb, blows his entourage to Europe 1. To free up property, Bercy will support 3 measures by amendments to the finance bill: the reduction of the tax advantage on the 100,000 seasonal rentals, a tax incentive to encourage owners of second homes to resell their property, and the creation of a loan at a subsidized rate.
