If you have a second home in France, prepare for a shock next time you open your Taxe d’habitation bill. Councils are now legally allowed to raise the taxe by up to a whopping 60%!
Second home short rentals apparently disrupt the housing market, making it more difficult for buyers to find a home at a reasonable price.
According to INSEE, there are 3.4 million second homes in France.
If your main home is in France, you won’t be affected by this rise, but Brits who live in England and own a holiday home in France should take a deep breath before opening their next bill.
