Energy renewal: the government promises to simplify the process for homeowners

Inflation, the energy crisis, rising interest rates, construction at half-mast in the face of ever-increasing demand… An inventory compiled by Loïc Cantin, the new president of Fnaim, on the occasion of the Federation’s annual congress. Tuesday, December 6 sounds like a cry of alarm. Either way, it sets the stage for a crucial year ahead in terms of housing policy to avoid the housing crisis that everyone fears. But of all the fears expressed by the real estate professional association, one is particularly pressing: the implementation of the 2021 Climate and Resilience Act and its schedule to ban the rental of heat filters.

From January 1, 2023, houses that actually consume more than 450 kilowatt hours of energy per square meter per year will be removed from the rental market. The measure will apply to all dwellings with a DPE classification G from 1 January 2025, then to F dwellings from 1 January 2028. In total, these are approximately 1.6 million private residences that are currently rented, and therefore, they will be renovated until 2028 to remain in the park. A calendar that can’t be saved for donors according to Fnaim. “It will be inevitable to soften the schedule, which is simply unbearable for both the owners and the companies and teams that will do this work, the condominium managers,” the newly elected president decides.


Energy renovation: still too few homeowners to start

The issue of condominiums is certainly the most subtle, but the most important issue to address, as 63% of the thermal sieves currently rented are located there. However, support and assistance mechanisms do not yet respond to the complexity and cost of the work. In the first half of 2022, a total of 82 condominiums requested collective works to the MaPrimeRénov ‘Copropriété scheme, i.e. approximately 4,300 apartments. “The financial burden of this work is currently estimated at between 25,000 and 40,000 euros per collective residence. [un coût] that many low-income donors will not be able to recruit”, emphasizes Loïc Cantin. Fnaim renews its call to suspend the property’s energy-related disqualification (and therefore the rental ban) until the co-ownership’s multi-year work plan, another obligation set out in the Climate and Sustainability Law, is met.

Action plan for leased fund

However, the Minister of Housing, who came to the congress, remains flexible. Olivier Klein answers: “Keeping the calendar means not undermining the credibility of public speech.” “The step is high, but not insurmountable,” confirms the person who wants to strengthen the implementation of the work done. “For this we have increased the budget dedicated to MaPrimeRénov and we will reflect the rise of MaPrimeRénov’ Condominiums in the coming months. condominium scale “he says.


Housing: “I want to think about the status of private landlords,” announces Olivier Klein

The minister calls (again) for general mobilization and sets a meeting for all participants to launch the “host road map” in early 2023. The goal: to accelerate the removal of energy barriers in the rental stock, while further supporting landlords. This action plan aims firstly to improve knowledge of the stock, to measure progress in terms of maintenance and then to better inform landlords looking to update their thermal screens. It will then involve mobilizing all the actors in the chain and simplifying their ways of working.

A steering committee combining the state, notaries, real estate experts, the National Housing Development Agency (ANAH), the National Observatory for Energy Renewal (ONRE), representatives of landlords and tenants will be formed in January and will meet three or four times thereafter. a year. The government hopes to receive concrete proposals to achieve its goals. Banks that are regularly noted as having no obligations will also be there. “Many banking institutions do not want to finance renovation works in condominiums. I [les] will meet at the beginning of January to dialogue and find solutions”, promises Olivier Klein.
