Since November 2008, there is the Riester subsidy for homeowners. Anyone who has bought or his house or his apartment after 2007 built, will receive the same allowances and tax benefits as for a conventional Riester savings contract for the repayment of its loan.

Puts a homeowner annually at least 4 percent of its gross income, a maximum of 2,100 euros, in the repayment of its loan Riester, he will receive 154 euro basic allowance per year. There is also 185 euro allowance per child. For children who were born after 31 December 2007, the amount increased to 300 euros. The repayment of up to 2,100 euros a year can tax deduct as special expenses also.
