The Government will approve the new housing law in the Council of Ministers on Tuesday, January 18

The Government plans to approve the Law by the Law on Housing, in the Council of Ministers of the next week, on January 18, the Minister of Transportation, Mobility and Urban Agenda, Raquel Sánchez, Raquel Sánchez.

This rule, which has been the subject of much controversy in the sector, will allow autonomous communities to limit the rental price in the areas stressed to the owner companies of more than ten homes.

"We will approve it at the next Council of Ministers on January 18 and the forecast is that we can lead to a second reading and therefore, definitively approve that long-awaited law on the Government. And from there to start logically the parliamentary processing" , has confirmed the EFE agency the minister during his visit to the Dubai Expo.

The Council of Ministers approved on October 26, the preliminary draft law by the right to housing at first reading, with the intention of sending it to Congress as a bill before the end of the year.

Raquel Sánchez has specified that "shortly" the government will feature the report of the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) and denied that there is concern about the content of it.

This report was mandatory because the standard modifies some aspects of the Law of Civil Prosecution. However, the CGPJ lamented last week that I had not had enough time to elaborate it before January.

This law has provoked suspicion in the real estate sector, which believes that its approval will reduce the supply of housing, will worsen the maintenance of real estate and will lead the rental market to the economy submerged. However, Sánchez has defended that the text of the preliminary project law has had a "positive reception" in the real estate sector Some concern was generated by the sector, I can venture to say that it has been a positive reception by the sector, "he has taken chest. For the private landlords and the companies proprietary of less than ten homes, the text foresees that the tenant can ask for them annual extensions of the contract up to a maximum of three years with frozen income, but only if the area is considered tensioned - that is, if housing expenses account for more than 30% of the R Enta.

Other points of the text is to penalize empty housing, since the preliminary draft provides that the City Councils apply a 50% surcharge on the liquid real estate tax (IBI) to which they remain unoccupied without justification for more than two years; 100% if it is empty more than three years and 150% if the owner has four unoccupied properties in the same municipal term.
