An affordable rent is not achieved with a Royal Decree


l Royal decree law on urgent measures in terms of housing and rent It is based on five objectives. On the one hand, increase in supply and moderation of prices. On the other hand, this rent decree seeks to increase the social housing stock, reduce evictions. And, finally, improvement in the accessibility of housing.

To Luis CorralCEO Contact Us, has analyzed all the proposals in Invertia. In his opinion, the reality is that it does not help and can even harm. These are your reasons

Increase in contract times. They go from 3 to 5 years for individuals and up to seven for companies. Some owners may prefer to remove their apartments from the market because if they need housing, if they do not leave it in writing, they will take more time to recover it.

The demand for the return of immigrants increases, while the supply can be reduced

Prices will not moderateNo because the demand will be higher and the offer may not. And another aspect, a part of the rental housing could go to the buying and selling market.

Limitation of guarantees. The landlord must raise his provisions before the risk of default. The owners are going to be much more demanding with the economic profile of the tenant.

IPC reference. It is a suitable point, as long as there are no obstacles in the rest of the points. The idea of ​​creating a reference index, and the one that adjusts to it, has tax benefits, it may be fine and there will be owners interested in entering the wheel.

The increase of the social housing park for rent is a good idea. The doubt, who will do it?

Evictions. The time is increased to the detriment of the legal security of the landlord.

Create a social housing park It's a good idea, but who does? It would be good to clarify this point that the decree only lists, as it does with the accessibility section.

This post is just a summary of the opinion article by Luis Corral. All the reasons and proposals of the new rent decree, you can read them in depth in our collaboration in Invertia

What, in principle, was a disadvantage became an opportunity for these residents: "Being the first, they were able to buy 1.200 euros per square meter in the 2015 year. That is to say, for a two-bedroom dwelling it was based on costs from 150.000 euros».

Currently, prices are no longer so cheap. The square meter is now pay 2.100 euros, which translates into 240.000 euros for a two-room apartment, according to current data from Foro Consultores. "This means that, in four years, there has been a rise of 75%», Corral emphasizes.

8.000 homes for lifting

The Cañaveral will host 14.000 houses, of which 6.000 are already delivered or are being built. Their owners will have the keys in the coming months. This urban development is still attractive to buy cheap in Madrid, taking into account, in addition, that another of the large neighborhoods of new construction in Southeast, the Ensanche de Vallecas, it has practically exhausted the land to be built, since only 10% is available, according to Forum Consultores
