Rights and duties of tenants and landlords
Housing discipline is a relatively new concept that was born with the Right to Housing Act of 2007. This law establishes clear guidelines that define the concept of decent housing and establish a series of obligations and rights to housing for people who rent a home or own it.
Administrations pass new laws to move towards guaranteeing decent housing. An example is Law 11/2020 for the regulation of the rent price that allows to freeze and reduce the rent in 61 Catalan municipalities where it has been considered that the market is tense, approved by the Parliament of Catalonia in September 2020.
