is of which want to stay in one of the six state-owned housing companies. But why is this so, and this is true even if the country buys privatized housing stock back? Yes, because the country's own companies are more stringent social regulation than private companies. The a track of a social rent policy – to the business model of the other is to lift up the "hidden reserves" of a housing stock and this is in the scope for rent increases. Because the value of a company is measured by its rental income.
tenants in the private holdings must also expect higher allocations in the case of modernizations. Deutsche Wohnen also requires repeated rent increases beyond the limits of the "mietspiegel" and had sued to enforce them against a tenant. The country's own companies. A difference is that households with little income better chances to get an apartment from the GSW portfolio would have, if this rekommunali would be magnetized. Because state-owned companies need to fixed shares of their apartments, and not only of the subsidised social housing – low-income rent.
