To whom and on what terms

Background information

A person looking for rental housing may make enquiries with the municipality. Rental housing units owned by municipalities mostly are rental housing built on state support, to which resident selection criteria laid down in law apply.

While the municipalities do not have a statutory duty to offer rental housing to their residents, developing housing conditions in their area is part of the municipalities’ tasks. The purpose of the development of housing conditions is to ensure that the inhabitants of the municipality have access to reasonable housing. Most municipalities have rental housing units built and offer them for rent to the residents, either directly or through a rental housing company established by the municipality.
