Pinel’s law renewal in 2018

Some adjustments are made to the measures, without reassessing the advantages for the taxpayer. The aim of the government is to make the measures more efficient than what it is today.

Thereby the Pinel's law will be renewed in 2018, for 4 years. Its title won't change, and it is aligned with the provisions already applicable.
In practice, tax concessions tied with investment remain unaltered. Only certain requirements for the application and for the eligibility related to Pinel's areas are progressing. 

Government's aim: redefining the measures in " tense " areas, where the demand remains higher than the supply of available properties. As a reminder, the 2018 Pinel's law allows all the investors to benefit from a tax reduction which can increase to 21% of the property price for an investment made on 12 years in an eligible new-build program. 


The application areas of the Pinel's law 2018 will be redefined the next 4 years on the A, A bis and B1 areas. The B2 and C areas, eligible to the Pinel's law until 2017, leave the measures from 2018. 


High tax reduction 
Tax breaks of Pinel's law are kept in 2018. These tax concessions depend on rental length: 
21% of the investment price for 12 years of rental 
18% of the investment price for 9 years of rental 
12% of the investment price for 6 years of rental 

Wealth accumulation 
Pinel's law 2018 allows to build a lasting wealth by investing in bricks and mortar, easily transmittable 

Investing without inputs 
Pinel's measures allow to resort to a real estate loan, without giving a starting input. 

Preparing retirement 
Investment in Pinel's law allows to prepare the retirement serenely. From the legal period of the pass housing possession, the owner runs his property the way he wants. He can sell his/her property from the perspective of doing a capital gain, renting it or living in it as a principal or secondary residence. 

Renting to relatives 
One of the novelties in Pinel's law compared to the old Duflot's law, is to have the opportunity to rent your property to relatives. Thereby, related can buy a new- build housing thanks to Pinel's measures and accommodate their child(ren) while making the most of Pinel's law tax concessions.
