buy back The former apartments of GSW – that sounds all well and good and fits in the current debate. But there is the risk that an icon is set, the country happens to be financially auspowert and otherwise, threatens nothing.
We are talking about 60 000 flats, which would then be managed by the city. Good. But in Berlin will be sold per year more than 50 000 apartments. Many houses are still in free float. Their owners are often in the retirement age, and it is clear that more and more many years of reputable home owners are overwhelmed with the management of their buildings and the houses actually want to get rid of – and it was not, because they want the heirs to argue about that later. They tend to get along well with your tenants and also want the tenants in the house also.
The long-term research, "Who owns Berlin" is a collaboration of the daily mirror, with the non-profit research center Correctiv. On our platform wem-gehoert-berlin.de you can tell us who is the owner of your apartment, and what experience have you had with your landlord. Using the data we are looking for irresponsible business practices and make the property market more transparent. Submitted stories will be published only with your consent.
owners. under pressure
However, these owners are currently getting in Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf annually and automatically up to ten offerings of more or less reputable brokers, of which you will feel under massive pressure Many give in to this pressure at some point, and are re-sold countless so far, cheap apartments for astronomical prices, only with the speculative intention on the land price development or planning, to achieve a remediation measure at least a doubling of the rent.daily mirror people Free Oliver Schruoffeneger (Green) city councillor for urban development, construction and the environment in Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf.Photo: promo
we do not Go on the assumption that approximately half of the annual sales takes place at other reasonable buyer in the free float, but the big, fast profit-oriented investors. The buy-back of 60 000 flats of the Deutsche Wohnen does not solve our Problem, and Within two years the effect would be dissipated. This buyback would be an important Symbol in the society to a new housing policy, but this new housing policy must then also follow.
Berlin needs to make property owners a quote
Specifically, this means that we urgently need an offer for those property owners that wish to sell their property, but the interests of your tenants in the eye want to keep. This can be to communities and then are transferred to the structure of the tenantry of the country's own companies, cooperatives or self-managed in-house.
The full concentration on the question of how we prevent, that the city is simply washers of various insurance companies, Money, and speculators bought up, backs on to permanent much more cost-effective homes than those 60 000, which could buy the Land now of the Deutsche Wohnen.
The proposal of the mayor can be the starting point for the necessary debates to this new housing policy. However, it can also lead to the fact that after such a decision, all the sit back and the Problem does not hold. Then the rear would be buying these apartments is harmful to the icon policy.
