Housing: young greens are calling for a freeze on rents

Prices are rising, as are rents in many places. Green Youth wants to change that.

The Green Youth calls for the Greens in the traffic light government to campaign for a nationwide rent freeze. In an application for next weekend’s party conference, available on t-online, it says: “We want to stop rising rents in urban centers to provide ample relief. To do this, we want to introduce a national freeze policy. rents for cities with a tight real estate market “. Furthermore, states should have the opportunity to regulate rents more effectively in the future.

“Traffic light plans to tighten the rent price brake don’t do justice to the reality of rising rents,” said Sarah-Lee Heinrich, boss of Green Youth, t-online. “It is good that the federal executive of the Greens is proposing a ceiling for indexed rents, but it is not enough. What we need is a freeze on rent for cities with a tight housing market.”

Even before the price hike during the energy crisis, it was clear that immediate measures were needed to ensure affordable housing, Heinrich said. Now the costs of food and heating were exploding and rents continued to rise. “Instead of further rent increases by large real estate groups, which have made billions in profits and distributed huge dividends in recent years, affordable housing is finally needed again for everyone, everywhere.”

The Greens are meeting on Friday for their federal party conference in Bonn. Until Sunday, the party wants to talk about the Russian war against

Debate on Ukraine, the energy crisis and climate protection.
