French leaseback properties and Council Directive 93/13/EEC

Question for written answer  E-003030/2021
to the Commission
Rule 138
Clare Daly (The Left)

In his answer to Written Question E-001291/2021, Commissioner Reynders acknowledged that purchasers of French leaseback properties ‘may have been misled, or insufficiently informed about the effects of the contract [...], including for example the applicability of the eviction clauses’ and that ‘such professional contracts would certainly deserve clear explanations given to potential buyers of tourism residencies with rental services included’.

Furthermore, the matter of ‘eviction compensation’, which the leaseback purchaser must pay in order to claim back the property, is a clear breach of Council Directive 93/13/EEC on unfair terms in consumer contracts.

With that in mind, what steps will the Commission take to ensure that purchasers of French leaseback properties are not penalised by hidden terms in their contracts – such as eviction compensation – which breach Council Directive 93/13/EEC?
