The PTZ + is a redesign of the old zero rate loan.
It is a 0% property loan granted under conditions of resources and which does not exceed a pre-established ceiling, depending on the nature of the property and its location.

This is a device in place since 2011 that helps to finance:

  • The acquisition of a new home for its first occupation
  • The purchase of an old dwelling whose amount of work represents 25% of the total cost of the operation
  • The construction of a dwelling, accompanied, where appropriate, by the acquisition of the right to build or the land intended for the construction of this dwelling
  • The development of use of housing, premises not intended for habitation. This operation is assimilated to the construction of a dwelling.
  • The acquisition of social housing under certain conditions
