From June 1, 1.8 million French people will have to take steps to change their address.

In France, today, around 20,000 municipalities still have at least one road that is not numbered. In the countryside, the name of certain hamlets often serves as the address for an entire group of dwellings. A situation that the government could not tolerate and which it judged to be unacceptable. good to take charge with a new law. Called 3DS (differentiation, decentralization, deconcentration and simplification) and voted on in February 2022, it requires ;name the "voices and places, including the private roads open to the public; traffic " and to number each of the buildings. Previously, this rule only concerned municipalities with more than 2000 inhabitants.

Another resident of the town testified to this. an increase in tax due the absence of a precise address.

What does this imply for the French people concerned? If they do not have their word à say about the choice of the name of their road, their hamlet, or the number of their accommodation, they will be required to other obligations. They will have to, as when moving, change their address everywhere, particularly on their identity papers. You will also have to notify their employer to have the new address on the pay slips, but also the bank, EDF, telephone or data operators. #39;internet…

The assigned numbers may also be surprising. Some isolated houses could be numbered according to the distance in meters which separates them from the start of the track and therefore achieve figures well beyond that. of the hundred. Nevertheless, the plates will not be obligatory.
