in Spite of the announced "realignment" of the Bundesanstalt für immobilienaufgaben (Bima) unbroken their policy of Privatisation. The Left-politician Caren Lay claims to the evaluation of the response of the Federal government to their Small request. "There is no realignment of the Bima," says Lay.

Thus, the Bima, between January and October 2018 sold almost as much land area as in the entire year of 2017. The Bima sold their real estate for the most part, to private buyers, with the proportion even increased from 77.8 (2017) to 78.5 percent.

Not a single property in Berlin is cheaper sold

The Bima holds nationwide, more than 25 000 plots. Since July of 2018, you should offer this to the local authorities actually "active" and cheapened, to the creation of affordable housing and social infrastructure. The announced preferred allocation to local carrier is not "in sight", says Lay. To provide "instead of the municipalities with land and affordable housing, will continue to be sold for the highest price bid." By October, only eleven plots of land were sold, therefore, nationwide cheapened to the municipalities, in Berlin, not a single one.

The percentage of homes that were sold to Private, and increased for 2016 even rapidly: from 13.2 (2016) and 29.6 (2017) to 52.3 percent. The Federal Agency missed its statutory mandate, the Federal employees provide them with housing, so Lay. Instead, they attack even as the price driver in the tight housing market through the purchase of so-called occupancy rights.

as a result, the Bima hires a staff of private dwellings for the Federal government, alone, in the year 2017, there were 1175. "You in competition to the already low supply of affordable housing and subsidize the profits of landlords for short-term occupancy rights", writes Lay.

Even the SPD and the greens criticised Bima

Also, the rental practice in your own real estate is criticized by the Left as "anti-social". The rent will continue to be "pushed to the limit of the Legal" in the heights, "the Federal budget Supplement". The Bima firmly believe, for example, the modernisation costs are socialised and covered up to the legally permitted amount of eleven percent to the tenant. Lay: "The social responsibility of a Federal Agency speaks. Here, the Federal government should be.“

so Far, private companies such as Deutsche Wohnen and Vonovia, especially in the criticism to increase the rent by extensive "return on renovations". In the last few years, but has also invested the Federal significantly in modernisation measures. The expenditure increased from 58.2 million (2013) to 96.2 million (2017). "For the year 2019, and in the medium term for the following years" plans, the Bima even modernisation costs of 150 million Euro annually.

Even the SPD and the greens have criticised the Bima recently for their rental practice. You are driving high in Berlin, the Rent, was the Deputy SPD state Chairman, Iris Spranger. The Green-politician, Lisa Paus criticized, in particular, the pressure of the Ministry of Finance on the Bima, each year high amounts remitted.

rental income to € 270 per apartment

increase The Bima that it was oriented since the housing peak in September new leases and rent Adjustments of the local comparative rent. The response of the Federal government, however, shows that of the 36 500 Bima-apartments (of which about 4000 in Berlin), only around 16 000 by the Federal even be rented - the Rest by external managers. The rental income external managers have been increased according to the layout from 2013 to 2017, to € 270 per apartment.

the membership of the Bima in the Association "the Central real estate Committee" (ZIA) is criticized by the Left. Since 2012, the Bima 211've paid 000 Euro of public funds in the Form of member contributions to the ZIA - to support the institution under public Law, the "capital market-based lobbying Association the real estate companies".

The Left-the Deputy Lay calls, the Bima in the future, "as a non-profit society, with social renting practice, yield limiting and reinvestment in housing". Without a statutory departure from the maximum price bid, this will remain a pious wish.
