Southern European Housing

Housing Policy and Tenure Types in the 21st Century

A Southern European Perspective

Autori vari

editore: Pisa University Press

This volume is the third in the Southern European Housing book series. While the previous volume examines New Developments in Southern European Housing (Bargelli, Heitkamp 2018) in general, the present focuses specifically on current challenges of housing policies in Spain and Portugal. A compar­ison with further eight southern European countries (Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, France, Greece, Italy, Malta, Romania) is included. The six chapters presented in this volume are aimed to provide a better un­derstanding of how housing policy has responded to the financial and housing crises in these countries. Were the years between 2008-2018 a ‘lost decade’ in housing policy or has real progress been made? The analyses and reflections in this book, which only represent a part of the diverse housing situations in southern European countries, are intended to stimulate and support professional debate on the subject.

New Developments in Southern European Housing

editore: Pisa University Press

pagine: 218

This volume provides a detailed overview of new developments in the housing policy and governance sector in southern Europe following the financial crisis and the burst in the housing bubble. The contributions collected in this volume touch on changes such as immigration and the movement of people, the financial and economic crisis and new poverties, urban changes such as the degradation of public tenures, social movements, and touristification. The papers also provide an overview of new policy trends. The development paths of the countries under study show some commonalities but also some important differences. In analysing individual new trends in the countries at stake, the book spotlights the development and the direction of Southern European housing. Housing provision, policies and governance in southern Europe are under constant change. The kind, scope and outcome of these changes will need to be further monitored and analysed as will any benefit generated for those demanding affordable housing opportunities.

Residential Tenancies and Housing Policy in Italy

di Ranieri Bianchi

editore: Pisa University Press

pagine: 340

The economic crisis in Italy has highlighted the growing phenomena of families not being able to find a suitable house for their needs, due to the financial difficulty of acquiring a house either through purchase or rental, and, even more so, through the route of public housing. A renewed awareness at a national level of the need for adequate housing policies at this critical juncture is accompanied by a need to look at the European framework, where a home is essential in order to ensure genuine freedom of movement of persons among EU countries. Given these considerations, this volume aims to provide readers throughout the EU with an up-to-date analysis on the state of the residential rental sector in Italy. The book begins with a general overview of the housing situation, with particular reference to recent public and fiscal policies. It then analyzes how legislation in Italy has developed in this area, including the many court rulings, which continuously modify how the law is interpreted and attempt to bring it in line with the needs of society today. A comparison with the rules governing access to public housing is also provided. Finally, the study highlights best practices in Italy that are worth exploiting in other nations of the EU, such as the constant balance between the interests of the owners and the tenants, who are the weak subjects in the contractual relationship, as well as the comprehensive legislation introduced to counter black market rentals.
