RRI without capping measures

Without these capping measures, the Housing Rent Reference Index would have stood at 142.32 in Q1 2023, corresponding to a 6.26% rise over a year. This non-capped index is provided for information and should not under any circumstances be used for the escalation of housing rents.

For more information

Article 9 of Act n° 2008-111 of 8 February 2008 on purchasing power modified the Housing Rent Reference Index (RRI) created by Article 35 of Act n° 2005-841 of 26 July 2005. It is an over-the-year chain-linked index. It is constructed by multiplying the value of the index of the same quarter of the previous year by the change between these two periods in the average over twelve consecutive months of the consumer price index – excluding the prices of tobacco and housing rents. This index is on a reference 100 in Q4 1998.

The calculation is done using the non-rounded up values of the consumer price index.

The housing rent reference index and its annual percentage change are rounded up to two decimals.

Article 12 of Act n° 2022-1158 on Emergency Measures for the Protection of Purchasing Power of 16 August 2022 provides that the annual change of the housing rent reference index may not exceed 3.5% between the third quarter of 2022 and the second quarter of 2023.

By way of derogation, it may not exceed 2.5% in the collectivities governed by article 73 of the Constitution (overseas regions and departments) and it may not exceed 2.0% in Corsica, in accordance with prefectoral order R20-2022-10-11-00012.
