First title: More powers to better regulate the real estate market

We demand more legal and fiscal powers to regulate the real estate market in order to fight against speculation and guarantee the social function of the city.

We, the local governments require regulatory and enforcement tools to protect our neighbourhoods from speculation.

Furthermore, we need the tools to protect the use of housing as homes for people living in the cities we represent.

We also require instruments to regulate the housing rental market, protecting tenants from speculative bubbles and giving them the right to greater security of tenure.

Likewise, we demand mechanisms to implement value capture from real estate operations for the common good, both in new developments and in urban renewal.

Finally, we need powers to fight substandard or vacant housing.
