French government proposes to cap the increase in rents at 3.5% for one year

French government proposes to cap the increase in rents at 3.5% for one year - The French government has proposed to cap the increase in rents at 3.5% for one year. The measure would serve to limit the impact of inflation on tenants. The National Housing Council is due to deliver its opinion this afternoon.

Known as the “rent shield” the measure aims to limit the impact of inflation on tenants and will be included in the amending finance bill, to be voted on this summer by Parliament. The government ensures that it has chosen "a balanced solution", taking into account the constraints of owners and those of tenants.

The government claims to have always ruled out "a pure and simple freeze on rents", Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne having already said that it was "a false good idea".
