How can you benefit from housing rehabilitation aid?

The Housing Plan 2018-2021 includes different housing rehabilitation aids. Aid that is focused on individuals, neighborhood communities and promoters.

Although it would be necessary to rehabilitate entire neighborhoods, the eternal problem, all help is good. The State Housing Plan expands the range and seems to also bet on energy efficiency in the building. For the first time aid is given to rehabilitation for single-family homes. And, in addition, aid is increased by 25%, in the cases of rehabilitation and urban regeneration, when young people rehabilitate their home in municipalities with less than 5.000 inhabitants.

These are the areas that can benefit:

  • Aid for rehabilitation. They focus on financing the rehabilitation works of buildings and individual homes. Obviously they have limits.
  • Regeneration and rural and urban renewal.
  • Improvement of accessibility. For dwellings with previous 1996 age and having 70% of the building surface must be for residential use and 50% of dwellings must constitute habitual residence.
  • Energy efficiency and sustainability in homes. This type of improvement in housing also has a place.

Obviously, there is a maximum limit of 40% of the investment as a general character. Then there are the exceptions for children under 35 years and older than 65.
