The President of the German Tenants Association does not believe in expropriating housing corporations. He has another idea to alleviate the distress of the tenants.

Dhe president of the German Tenants' Association, Franz-Georg Rips, has spoken out against the expropriation of housing corporations. "An expropriation must be regulated by law according to the Basic Law, in addition, a compensation is provided," said Rips the "Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger". It could take "ten to 15 years" until a decision was made. Then the situation on the housing market is quite another.

Rips instead called for the creation and maintenance of affordable housing to be included in the Building Code. "That would simplify and speed up approval processes." It would also be necessary to increase the number of staff in urban administrations.

The concept of a rental cover, as it is currently being discussed in Berlin, considers rips to be legitimate for a limited period of time. The German Tenants' Association is the umbrella organization of 15 regional associations. The clubs have about three million tenants. On Thursday the German tenant day began in Cologne, which lasts until Saturday.
