Two criteria to be met for the area should be considered: the Tenancy shall constitute more than 60 per cent of the housing stock and the proportion of public rental flats to be larger than the proportion of private rental properties.
This means that the following districts are: Rinkeby, Grimsta, Husby, Hökarängen, Rågsved, Hässelby gård, Fagersjö, Skärholmen, Bagarmossen, Västertorp and Satra.
" I am proud that the people in the eleven districts in the suburbs will have the opportunity to buy their dwelling. Our criteria to identify the neighborhoods where the disproportion of public rental apartments is most evident, and where a more mixed housing stock would be most important for the reduction of segregation, " says Dennis Wedin (M), the housing and real estate mayor of the city of Stockholm.
" I think it will be small, but I think that there is an interest. Some have heard of since we presented our platform in the fall.. But it is expensive to get loans and amorteringskraven inhibit potential buyers, " says Dennis Wedin.
There will be some differences compared to when the conversion of public rental flats last ran in the city of Stockholm:
the city of Stockholm shall have independent observers at all köpestämmor.
the Requirement on the proportion of residents who take interest in the housing company shall conduct a valuation and make an offer be increased from 40% to 50% and a purchase terms of a minimum proportion of the residents also must commit itself to acquire their apartment is introduced.
will have the overall responsibility for communications strategy, to ensure that the town communicates objectively, fairly and uniformly.
– this means that we are likely to get hundreds, maybe thousands, fewer rental units in the middle of a catastrophic housing crisis. says Clara Lindblom (V), oppositionsborgarråd.
" We have over a hundred other neighborhoods where condominiums and villas make up over 50 per cent of the housing stock. The ruling majority should, reasonably, give priority to building apartments in those areas instead, in order to transform the few rental properties available. In addition, several of the areas which now becomes the current ones that are already going through big changes, I am worried that this will lead to completely replace the population in, for example, Albuquerque and Västertorp.
Karin Wanngård (s) believe that it is a policy that has been tried in the past and it has not worked – the transformation of public housing has created bostadssegregation and housing shortages.
– at the same time as selling the rental properties so stops the moderate party in the construction of several thousand apartments. This policy will make it even harder for young people to find accommodation, " she says.
