The ALUR law
The legal measures and details of the ALUR law
The Access to Housing and Urban Renovation Law seeks to give a human face to the real estate market and develop an ecological landscape in large cities. Initiated by the former Minister of Housing, Cécile Duflot, it aims to protect owners and tenants from system aberrations. Reworked by Sylvia Pinel, this measure provides a stimulus for real estate investment in the context of equity loans and therefore serenity.
The ALUR law favors a partnership of trust with real estate agencies.
The housing shortage in the city, coupled with the strong rental demand, results in a complex environment that deserves more transparency in order for trust. Now, the agency fees are subject to the caps of the state and receive a fair distribution between the different parties. Now, the owner of a property maintains the rent, however shares the costs of the inventory or the drafting of a lease with the tenant. Similarly, the unions of condominium will have to obey precise regulations.
The ALUR law imposes new rules for sellers
Since March 2014, the real estate advertising concerning the major agglomerations must specify the total number of lots sold as well as the participation expenses of the condominium, and even the financial situation as well. Once the sale has been agreed, the owner must provide certain documents to the purchaser, including the regulation and the description of the condominium which will specify the cost of the charges; the maintenance book, the risk of dry rot, and the status of the budget allocated to the union to work are all part of the reported information. The government intends to put an end to the dilapidated housing.
The ALUR law encourages ecological LDP
To date, the Alur Act promotes the construction of suburban residential neighborhoods in high-density areas. The rental of these items provides a significant decrease in the income tax, proportional to the rent. The breakdown of these areas ensures the implementation of new guidelines and Pinel allows innovative projects, as Nice aims to become "the green city of the Mediterranean". The Minister wishes to encourage the renovation of property: thermal regulation RT 2012 is the refurbishment of buildings, which can attest to the BBC Renovation label.
The removal of LUC by the ALUR law
LUC - Land Use Coefficient - had until now been an obstacle to construction. Indeed LUC limited the buildable area based on land area. The removal of LUC by ALUR law allows applicants for building permission to no longer have to take action on it. Only applications for authorization submitted before the ALUR Act came into effect must submit to it.
This removal of LUC intervenes within communes which have a LDP - Local Development Plan - in place, as well as on land which falls within the scope of a Backup and Enhancement Plan.
Only municipalities with a LUP - Land Use Plan - are not affected by the removal of LUC.
