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.
