  • A commitment to reinvest the sale price in the acquisition of a building intended as a principal residence within a period not exceeding six months from the date of sale of the first building intended as a principal residence.
  • The taxpayer may benefit from this exemption only once.
  • The transfer price of the above-mentioned building must not exceed MAD 4 million.
