When the damage tenants who did not get their deposit back made an extreme choice by criticizing the government’s measures, the government came up with an additional support plan.
It contained contents such as expanding emergency housing options, and the damaged tenants argued that the government should introduce a method of paying back the deposit first and claiming the right to reimbursement.
This is reporter Choi Ki-seong.
At the end of last month, tenant A, who was unable to return the deposit of 70 million won on the jeonse, died leaving a note saying, “The government’s measures are disappointing.”
Afterwards, victims’ groups and civic groups commemorated Mr. A and began to denounce the government’s responsibility.
[정부가 책임져라. 책임져라. 책임져라. 책임져라.]
In response, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport held a meeting with the affected tenants and collected their opinions to come up with additional measures.
It was also decided to introduce a method of paying monthly rent without prepayment for ’emergency support housing’, which had to be paid six months in advance.
Even if it exceeds the area of the existing house, it is possible to move in if it is of a similar size.
Even if the auction process is in progress, if the damage is certain, a conditional confirmation will be issued in advance.
Increase the validity period from 3 months to 6 months.
We will change the system so that even if you become a single homeowner after inevitably winning a bid for a residential house through an auction or public sale, you can use preferential benefits for the first time in your life, such as lowering the loan interest rate.
We also support up to three psychological counseling programs per person for damaged tenants suffering from mental distress.

Damaged tenants evaluate this measure as a late but meaningful measure, but point out that there are many shortcomings.
It is said that the government should first introduce a plan to purchase deposit bonds or damaged houses.
