Social Impact:

According Act 19/2015, of July 29, citizens in Catalunya (Spain) have seen how their rights toward housing have changed. This law defines two different types of ownership that give people the opportunity to buy 25% of the house and buy the rest at the rate depending on the particular conditions of each individual. This measure combats poverty in Europe, offering social cohesion and improving life conditions for people at risk of poverty.

Social Impact:

With the first chair of housing, created by the Governing Council of University Rovira i Virgili (Spain) on July 11, 2013, TENLAW laid the foundations for research in the field of housing. It was an important progress on one hand, in the field of research and teaching (PhD Candidates preparing disertation, creation of research groups) and on the other, regarding dissemination actions (European Network for Housing Research gathered 500 researchers from 41 countries that shared 450 papers in the field)

Social Impact:

With the implementation of this new act, Spanish tenants can make repair works in the rented property instead of paying the rent. Furthermore, it mentions the possibility of using a mediation and/or arbitration process to resolve conflicts between the landlord and the tenant. This flexibilization facilitates social cohesion and improves life conditions for people at risk of poverty.
