Who can apply?

The City of Luxembourg can, in certain circumstances, provide financial aid to build or purchase a home in Luxembourg City to people:

  • who are building or purchasing a house or commonhold flat for residential purposes in Luxembourg City, provided the accommodation meets the health and safety standards generally applicable in the country and the occupants' specific needs;
  • whose taxable annual income, in the year before construction or purchase, is less than €85,000 at the current index of 668.46 points, applicable to the salaries of civil servants. Persons who are not able to produce evidence documenting their taxable income must provide a comparable document;
    • from 2023: in the case of a sole owner who, in the year preceding the construction or purchase, earned annual taxable income of less than €108,789.88 (equivalent to 855.62 on the sliding scale of wages). This amount is adjusted on 1 January each year to reflect changes in the sliding scale of wages;

      in the case of joint owners who, in the year preceding the construction or purchase, earned annual taxable income of less than €121,633.18 (equivalent to 855.62 on the sliding scale of wages). This amount is adjusted on 1 January each year to reflect changes in the sliding scale of wages;

  • who are not entitled to the full ownership or usufruct of other accommodation;
  • who commit to using the subsidised accommodation for their primary or permanent residence.

Any person purchasing a home can only receive the benefit once.

When the home to be subsidised is purchased jointly by several persons, the application must specify which person is considered the recipient of the grant within the meaning of this regulation. All of the income sources of the household will be taken into account in determining the threshold.

Amount

The benefit is set at €3,600. This sum is increased by €600 for each dependent child living in the household.

From 2023

The allowance is set at €7,200.00. It is increased by €1,200 for each dependent child living in the same household as the recipient of the allowance.

The changes will take effect on 1 January 2023 and apply for all applications received from that date.
