a year ago, the rent was back in the capital, after have been in force from 2015 to 2017. He had allowed then to " stabilise rents parisians who had experienced a continuous rise of 50 % during the previous decade 2005-2015 ", note the site of the city of Paris. But what lessons could be drawn from the back of this device ?
According to a study of the site specialized in real estate Best agents based on the analysis of 5 500 ads for unfurnished rentals, 53% of them do not comply with the rent regulation, and particularly in boroughs with the most expensive that are the 6th district (70 % of the ads do not adhere to the device), the 7th district (60 %) and Paris-Centre (67 %).
This phenomenon particularly affects small areas : 80 % of the ads for apartments of less than 20 m2 would be illegal after Best agents, and for these small apartments, the difference between the rent regulation and rent asked is on average + 22 %, and sometimes much more. Owners can waive the rent if their housing has specific qualities. They can then impose a surcharge, but not sure that all of the homes not following the guidance justify an overrun.

Despite these abuses, the rent regulation has produced effects. It has helped to curb the increase in rents during a lease, during the first six months of its operation, that is, between July and December 2019. But an upward trend is seen since the beginning of the year : it can be explained, according to the Best agents, by the little appeal filed by the tenants, who have already spent a lot of energy to find accommodation in the capital.
In addition, the owners realized that there was no police rents, and others have probably compensated for the shortfall in the containment to increase their rents, " says Thomas Lefebvre, chief scientific officer of the Best agents, in the Figaro.

In fact, the framing device of rents based on a rent of reference defined by district), a grid of reading is too broad to take into account all the specificities of the real estate in Paris. "A street to the other, everything can change," notes Thomas Lefebvre, who prefers to have a tool that takes more account of the characteristics of the housing.
