Housing and construction by keyword taxation

The type of housing people choose depends on their life situation. Part-ownership and right-of-occupancy housing are alternatives to owning property and renting. Those on low incomes can receive a housing allowance, regardless of the type of their homes.

Creating a safe and healthy living environment is first and foremost the responsibility of the local authority. A building permit from the municipality is required in order to start building. A permit may also be required for renovation if major alterations are to be carried out.
