When renewing a lease or re-letting, it will first be prohibited to increase the rent of these homes classified F and G in energy performance, one year after the law was promulgated. In 2025 for the G class and from 2028 for the F, they will no longer be part of “decent housing”. According to the government, 1.8 million homes will be banned for renting. As planned, MEPs have extended the measure to classified E housing in 2034, via an amendment by rapporteur Mickaël Nogal (LREM).
But oppositions from all sides criticize a “trompe-l’oeil ban” (Vincent Descoeur, The Republicans). “Do you think that someone who is languishing in unsanitary accommodation will have a reflex to go and seize the judge? That never happens”, launched the socialist Guillaume Garot.
