New Government and new National Housing Plan

On January 8, after a long investiture debate and numerous strategies and contacts between the political parties that form in Congress, the first coalition government that the country has experienced throughout its democratic history was launched. The agreement put an end to two years of political instability, with the formation of progressive parties linked by a common policy and a roadmap of a marked social nature.

The new PSOE-Podemos coalition government has shown that housing will play a fundamental role within the next four years, and proof of this is the intention of the minister to approve a State Housing Law. For this reason, at Villas Internacional we have wondered how these new policies will affect the real estate market, and what measures we can expect in the sector. Although the final texts of the laws have not yet been written, these are some of the most relevant measures in the air.

  1. Financed property rehabilitation. There is a high number of aged residential buildings in Spain, so the Government has already anticipated its intention to implement a specific financing plan for the owners who rehabilitate their apartments and houses and put them in the rental market at viable prices . It is thus intended to promote energy efficiency and increase the number of apartments for rent.
  2. Greater access for young people. The next Housing Plan aims to fight against the inconveniences that prevent young generations from accessing a home according to their salaries and financial conditions.
  3. Increase of the public park of housing for rent. With this measure the construction of houses for rent is pursued through a public-private partnership. Although the details of the legal form that will allow this agreement are not yet known, everything points to a concession for long periods.
  4. Limitation of the rental price. This is one of the measures with less social support, and which aims to put a ceiling on monthly increases in the densely populated regions, such as Madrid or Barcelona, ​​applying a price index. The sector, however, rejects this initiative and claims, however, to increase legal certainty.
  5. Fight against depopulation. It is a quota of policies focused on the area of ​​territorial imbalance and the problems involved in depopulation in some areas of Spain.


These are just some of the most important measures that the Government will try to implement throughout its next four years of legislature.
