Prevention of building degradation in Paris - 2022 results

Each year, in liaison with the City of Paris, Apur draws up a list of building with precarious elements that render it advisable to verify the buildings’ construction as a preventive measure. In 2022, 264 buildings were identified out of over 49,000 privately-owned residential buildings in Paris.


264 buildings were found through cross referencing 13 indicators that highlight potential problems, such as safety or health measures taken, operations carried out by the Paris Fire-Brigade, the number of social housing applicants, unpaid water bills in a building, the proportion of small rented housing units or the presence of termites. In 2022, the list of indicators was revised to incorporate new files. The buildings identified are for the most part old, co-owned and located in north-eastern neighbourhoods of Paris. 

Implemented in collaboration with the City of Paris Department of Housing and Habitat (DLH), this procedure is part of an operation aimed at monitoring  and preventing residential buildings from becoming rundown. The objective is to focus on as small a proportion of premise as possible which are checked by municipal services, to ensure that administrative action is taken as early as possible and thus to prevent new buildings from falling into the downward spiral towards insalubrity.
