Spain’s Constitutional Court has invalidated the vast majority of the Catalan rent cap law on Thursday. The legislation came into effect in September 2020 and affected up to 61 cities and towns in Catalonia.
The court revoked the law to limit rent prices in some areas of the territory as it is the “state who sets the obligatory contractual standards,” a press release read. This means, according to magistrates, Catalonia has overreached its legislative powers related to housing.
