The local government rented sector
Structure, administration, rent setting. NOVA report 12/2007
This report presents the empirical analysis of a project where we have been investigating different aspects of the municipal housing sector in Norway. The aim of this project has been to study differences between municipalities regarding the following questions:
- Is the rent determination in social housing based on market rents in the private sector, on costs (including opportunity costs), on expenditures, related to some historical level or is it related to the income level of the tenants?
- What are the size, structure and routines of management applied in the municipal housing sector?
- What is the involvement of private landlords in social housing?
- What is the degree of means-testing regarding access to the dwellings?
