Abstract : 1) Investment property (strategies of owners) and rental relations (tenants /owners) Understanding the determinants of real estate investment is a key factor in economic and urban history, as it underlies the real estate economy, much of the urban morphology and the effect of housing policies. There is also a social and political issue around the relationship between housing shortage and rent control. What were the consequences of these controls on rents? Did they have an impact on housing? What were the effects of economic crises and World wars on the global mobility of tenants? How real estate is it spread within families? What time is the phenomenon of co-ownership and by what method? The study proposes an approach to explaining the long period springs investment in rental housing that is housing or commercial, by linking economic data and a logical analysis of actors. 2) Implentation in relationship to historical data for economic and social character in a system of relation database Access to accounting records kept by a real estate property manager of Lyon since the 1860s and the consultation of archives of real estate companies and property owner, has, through the collection of an important dataset, answer these questions. But the amount of information is so important both in their diversity in quantity, we had to think about how to cope with. Thus, for each apartment building or land, historical information are manifold ranging from their physical characteristics (area of land, buildings, number of floors, construction date, number of rooms, area of dwelling), economic (cost of sales, inheritance) and social (the successive owners and tenants). In total by less than 2,000 buildings, 5,000 apartments, 100 000 Rents and13 000 owners and tenants. Linking, through a system of relational database developed within the laboratory research, this information has made possible the treatment. Different regulatory mechanisms for rent had a real impact on the protection of tenants in times of crisis. The curve of rents similar to that of Paris. It shows a regular growth in the late 19th century and then decline from 1914 (1st law for rent control) is now then at a low level throughout the inter-war to start rising after 1948 (2nd lawfort rent control) and continues to this day. The control of rent took effect as another limitation of buildings. But the profitability of investment real estate has not suffered too much from these devices since the owners, during these periods, have adapted their strategy to the situation by not maintaining their property or by changing the type of locations in favorising more on more shops than lodging since they are more profitable than lodging. A book containing the full findings of the study and allows everyone to discover the secrets of investment policies and the impact they had on all of the urban real estate.
