What is the nationwide rental value reference system for? The system would be the foundation for setting the costs of rental residences within the areas that the autonomous communities declare to be a burdened residential market, the place the Law for the Right to Housing supplies for the regulation of costs.

Where will rental costs be regulated? The rule supplies that the autonomous communities could request to declare areas of burdened actual property market to manage costs and so far solely Catalonia has requested it. The Generalitat has requested to declare 140 municipalities as areas with excessive stress.

What if the owner is a superb fork? When the proprietor has 10 or extra residences (a determine that Catalonia has diminished to 5 houses or extra), whether or not it’s a authorized entity or an organization, the rental value might be that of the earlier contract or the one set by the reference system if is inferior. “The lower of both prices” the ministry has clarified.

What would be the value of a house that was not beforehand rented? In this case the reference would be the index, the reference system.

What has been the methodology to develop the pricing system? The ministry has defined that the system has “technical rigor, legal solidity” and that it has used official information and the contribution of specialists, along with the Generalitat, which already has its personal index. The sources to arrange it are the Tax Agency (with two million contracts for citizenship declarations for the yr 2022), the cadastre, the INE, the Bank of Spain, the College of Registrars and the presidency and the faculty of economists have additionally participated. .

Are there extra parts that decide the worth?

From the yr of development of the constructing, if it has an elevator or neighborhood pool, to the vitality score of the house itself, what flooring it’s on and if it has “special views”.
