Contribution for rent reduction, keep an eye on the dates

Contribution for rent reduction: in which cases are you entitled?

Article 9-quater of the Legislative Decree n. 137/2020, the so-called Refreshments Decree, establishes that for the year 2021, to the lessor of a property for residential use, located in a municipality with high residential voltage and which constitutes the tenant’s main residence, which reduces the rent of the lease agreement in place as of 29 October 2020, a non-repayable grant up to 50% of the reduction in the rent, within the maximum annual limit of Euro 1,200 for each lessor.

This renegotiation must be communicated to theRevenue Agency electronically.

Obviously, in order to request the non-repayable grant for rent reduction, the following must be respected conditions:

  • the lease agreement must be subject to one or more renegotiations, in reduction of the rent for the whole year 2021 or for part of it
  • these renegotiations must have an effective date equal to or later than 25 December 2020 (date which coincides with the entry into force of the law establishing this contribution

The rule has therefore been in force since December 25, 2020. The contribution, as specified with the provision dated 6 July 2021, can be requested in the following cases:

  • if the lease relationship exists as of 29 October 2020;
  • only for landlords who, from 25 December 2020 to 31 December 2021, have reduced the rent for all or part of the year 2021.

In practice, the CFP it can only be requested for existing contracts at October 29, 2020 renegotiated starting from December 25, 2020.

Based on the foregoing, it follows that, in the event of a contract active on 29 October 2020 and for which a renegotiation was made in the period June 2021 – July 2022, it is possible to request the Contribution in question as the time requirement for admission to the request is acquitted.

If the lessor had previously rejected the request, the same will have to make new of the CFP by also sending an application in self-defense in which to attach the documentation proving the renegotiation of the rent as well as a supplementary note specifying the reasons for the ‘error.
