French 2017 presidential candidates views on real estate.
Real Estate: what are the proposals of the candidates on the right for the elections of 2017? Firstly all promise to change the loi Alur when they come to power. The vast majority want to favour buyers and investors by revising existing aid packages. Here are the main ideas: Nicolas Sarkozy replace the loan at zero percent by a system of guarantee for first-time buyers, reduce CGT to 15 years… Alain Juppé: favour social housing, diminish restrictions on letting properties… Bruno Le Maire: lower notary fees on purchases of principal residences, lower VAT on first–time buyers for new housing …Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet: boost property purchases by increasing the scope of zero percent loans, encourage renovation projects… Jean-François Copé: fix VAT at 10% for first-time buyers, put a ceiling on income from property to 33%... Jean-Frédéric Poisson: suppress all the aids for purchasing but reduce the taxes on all property purchases.
