From January 1, 2024, the timetable specifying the progressive ban on the rental of housing poorly classified in the energy performance diagnosis (EPD) must be specified when signing a lease. A way to push owners to carry out the work, even if exceptions exist.
Tenants and owners will now be informed of their rights and duties, in black and white. From January 1, 2024, when signing a lease, the schedule of sanctions attached to the new energy performance diagnosis (DPE) must be specified in full. This obligatory DPE during a sale, but also for a rental, is a thermal assessment of the accommodation. Valid for 10 years, it is carried out by a trained and certified diagnostician, at a cost of between 100 and 250 euros.
A more precise calendar
Regardless of the rating assigned to the accommodation, the new leases, signed as bare or furnished main residencemust therefore specify that the label issued by the DPE may result in work obligations for the owner, under penalty of sanctions.
Thus, since 2023, homes consuming more than 450 kWh of final energy per m per year, i.e. below the G rating, can no longer be rented. This will be the case from 2025 for housing rated G, from 2028 for those rated F and in 2034 for properties labeled E.
This detailed schedule will be specified in the Housing Consistency section of the rental contracts. It replaces the current formulation, which is much more general, specifies a decree published on August 18.
Owners of private housing classified F and G can no longer increase the rent of their property.
