Liberalisation of rental policy - 2006

The liberal cabinets Balken I, II and III - period 2002-2006 - wanted to modernise the rental policy, read: liberalise. Gradually, part of the social housing would be transferred to the free sector. Three quarters of the rental properties would remain in the social stock. Five percent of the rental market was already liberalised and therefore had no restrictions on rents. The remaining 20% was to become the transitional group. For the determination of the transition group, the WOZ value of the houses was the important indicator.
