Principle and conditions

You must be of Monegasque nationality and hold a residential tenancy agreement which has been duly registered with the Monaco Department of Tax Services and fulfills the conditions established by  Ministerial Decree no.2008-87 of 15 February 2008 pertaining to National Housing Aid

Your rental property must not be provided by:

  • Your spouse
  • Your brothers and sisters or those of your spouse
  • Your ancestors or descendants or those of your spouse

You must inform us of any change in your family, financial or housing circumstances which may change calculations concerning your allowance. Each year, you must declare the amount of income you received in order to ensure that you still fulfill the conditions required for the allowance.

These stipulations do not serve as an impediment to the checks which may be performed at any time by the appropriate Services. In the event of a false statement, National Housing Aid may be suspended for a maximum of one year.
