(en) Poland, AF: It is time to restrain the rising prices of renting apartments in Poland! (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Tue, 26 Apr 2022 09:20:10 +0300


The rents offered by private apartment owners far exceed the capacity of people who make a living. Even before the war, in Ukraine, Polish cities reached the top of the world ranking in terms of the greatest increase in rents in relation to wages[1]. To make matters worse, landlords in Poland used the outbreak of the war in Ukraine and the increase in the number of people looking for housing as an opportunity for sharp rent increases. In just two weeks after the start of the Russian invasion, rental prices in Poland have increased by as much as 30 percent. Only a few benefit from the "war bonus", at the expense of hundreds of thousands of Poles and Ukrainians. Regular price increases based on higher war-induced rental demand are especially immoral in a situation where
High rents and low wages are a simple recipe for a deep social crisis in Poland. National and local governments cannot passively observe the catastrophic effects of rising rental prices. A bold housing policy must stop a free American.
We demand state interventionin the housing market and strong regulation of private rental prices. We appeal to the government of the Republic of Poland to freeze the rates for renting an apartment to the level of 5 percent of the replacement rate.In practice, this means cutting the current horrendous rental fees by about half, depending on the city.

It's time to stop the growth of rents in Poland!

The rent offered by private apartment owners far exceeds the means of people who earn a living. Even before the war in Ukraine, Polish cities ranked first in the world in terms of the highest increase in rents relative to wages[1]. Even worse, rentiers in Poland used the start of the war in Ukraine and the increase in the number of people looking for housing as an opportunity to dramatically increase rents. In just two weeks since the Russian invasion began, apartment rental prices in Poland have risen by 30 percent. This "military bonus" benefits the few, at the expense of hundreds of thousands of Poles and Ukrainians. The regular increase in rental prices against the background of increased demand caused by the war is especially immoral in a situation where many Poles are selflessly supporting Ukrainian families by sharing housing and food.

High rents and low wages are a simple recipe for a deep social crisis in Poland. National and local authorities should not passively monitor the catastrophic consequences of rising house prices. A bold housing policy must stop this arbitrariness.

We demand state intervention in the housing market and strict regulation of the cost of private rent. We call for freezing rental rates to 5 percent of the replacement rate (pol. Stawka odtworzeniowa)[2]. We use the term lease to denote all lease costs, including rent. In practice, this means halving the current horrible rent, depending on the city.

Maximum rent for an exemplary 40-meter apartment in the largest cities in accordance with the limit of 5% of the replacement rate (rentier fee + rent):

Poznan: PLN 1220 (PLN 30.50 / square meter)
Currently (April 2022) the average fee for 40 m2: PLN 2300.
Warsaw: PLN 1,280 (PLN 32 per meter)
Currently, the average rent for 40m2: PLN 2,800 plus utilities.
Lód (: PLN 830 (20.75 / meter)
Currently the average fee for 40 sq.m: PLN 2160 plus utilities.
Wroclaw: PLN 1,060 (26.50 / meter)
Currently, the average rent for 40 sq.m: PLN 2,640 plus utilities.
Krakow: PLN 1,104 (27.60 / meter)
Currently, the average rent for 40 square meters: PLN 2,250 plus utilities.
