Since September 30th 2016, the garantie Visale (Visa for housing and jobs) has been extended to the under 30s.
Launched in February 2016 and financed par Action Logement (previously 1% logement), the Visale rent guarantee now benefits the under 30s regardless of their situation: young employees, self-employed, unemployed or students. The only exception: non-scholarship students who are fiscally dependent on their parents.
This guarantee, which is free for both tenant and landlord, will cover rent arrears for landlords of private property for the first three years of the lease. Almost 300,000 young people are expected to benefit annually, according to estimates of the Ministry of Housing.
