A good number of owners will have to upgrade the cash register…

Housing, an endless financial well for owners. Cost of credit, co-ownership charges, property tax… Not to mention, obviously, the maintenance of your home. The bill adds up quickly and, each year, it increases, inexorably, at the rate of inflation in everyday prices. An increasingly significant budgetary pressure that is not about to stop.

A new, mandatory invoice will force owners to pay. once again put your hand in your wallet. Or at least, the co-owners. In fact, only owners of property in buildings or on land containing several houses are affected by this next checkout. Owners of an individual house are, for their part, completely exempt.

A new invoice arrives for owners: it is mandatory and some are already receiving it

If charges are paid throughout the year, in particular to finance work in the building, the State now imposes ;agrave; many co-ownerships to carry out an inventory of their building. And obviously, the score is high. the responsibility of the co-owners. Two different assessments of the structure must be carried out: an Energy Performance Diagnostic (EPD) for know the level of insulation and energy consumption of the building, and a multi-year works plan (PPT) in order to know the works à undertake to improve the level of insulation and energy consumption of the building. The first is mandatory in all co-ownerships for which the building permit has been issued. deposited before January 1, 2013. The second also becomes progressively, on the following dates:

  • Since January 1, 2023 for co-ownerships of more than 200 lots
  • Since January 1, 2024 for co-ownerships between 51 and 200 lots
  • As of January 1, 2025 for co-ownerships of 1 50 lots

These evaluations require the intervention and, therefore, the remuneration of professionals in the matter. And that can add up quickly. For a DPE, you need to count between 1,000 and 5,000 euros, depending on the size of the building, while a PPT costs between 5,000 and 15,000 euros, also with variations depending on the scale of the work. perform. Generally, this costs around 150 euros per owner.

This invoice is not due settle only if the co-owners have decided, during a general meeting, to have these diagnostics carried out . They are also the ones who choose the method of payment: either by an increase in charges over one or more quarters depending on the note, or by drawing from the works fund at the end of the year. layout… which will need to be replenished. In any case, you will have to write a new check. And this, even though there is no legal obligation to immediately carry out the recommended work.
