Peruvians living abroad could be beneficiaries of the Bono Familiar Habitacional

Congressman Juan Carlos Lizarzaburo, from the bench people forceproposes that Peruvians residing abroad and who send remittances to the country can also be considered as beneficiaries of the Bono Familiar Habitacional (BFH), intended exclusively for the acquisition of a home within the Peruvian territory. Currently, 10% of the Peruvian population lives in another country, according to the INEI.

PL 4526 states that one of the minimum selection criteria is that Peruvians residing abroad prove the sending of remittances to Peru on a constant basis and uninterrupted for a minimum period of two years. The Ministry of Housing, Construction and Sanitation is in charge of adapting the law to the regulation of Law 27829, “Law that creates the family housing bonus” within a period not exceeding 60 calendar days from the official publication of the norm.

18.9% of Peruvians living abroad are interested in buying a house or an apartment within the country, according to the survey carried out in 2022 by the INEI. While, in the first quarter of last year, Peruvians sent a total of US$927 million in remittances, a figure that represents 8.9% more than that registered in the same period of 2021, according to the BCRP.

“We believe that it is time and for the first time in our history to include them as beneficiaries of the Law that creates the Housing Family Bonus and can access decent housing for their future or that of their families, since they are Peruvians who have been contributing to the increase of the family economy and consequently to the development of our country”, the document states.

The initiative was presented on Tuesday, March 21 and must go through the evaluation of the commissions of the Congress before its debate and vote in plenary.
