Warnings:

This publication, released quarterly, presents changes in housing rent indices, calculated from the results of two surveys, Rents and charges survey (L&C) and the survey on the rents of the social sector (ELBS).

As for the L&C survey, collection conditions remained degraded in July 2021 in the context of the pandemic, which may have an impact on the quality of the data collected. However, the usual adjustment methods have satisfactorily overcome these difficulties.

In metropolitan France, rents for principal residences (rented empty, whose main use is habitation) increased by 0.2% in Q2 2021, after having remained stable in the previous quarter.

Over one year, the evolution is +1.1%, after +1.0% in the previous quarter. Rents in the private sector rose by 0.6%. In the social sector, they increased by 2.0% over one year.

Rent index

  • Scope: metropolitan France
  • Sources: INSEE, Rents and Charges survey and survey on the rents of the social sector

For further information

The data are calculated from the results of the Rents and charges survey and the survey on the rents of the social sector (ELBS). The field covers all principal residences, rented empty, whose main use is habitation. The index is calculated according to the Laspeyres formula applied to rents per square metre. We measure variations at a constant quality by comparing the rents observed in the Q-quarter to the rents observed in the Q-1-quarter. These indices are then chained, from the 1st month of a quarter to the 1st month of the previous quarter.

These data differ from the Housing Rent Reference Index (IRL), which is the reference for the revision of rents during the lease term in the private rental stock, because the change in rents presented here is the one actually recorded. While the real change in rents is correlated with the evolution of the IRL, the two indices are not identical.
