The Senate’s Law Committee decided on Monday to attach a favorable report to the bill approving OUG No. 30/2017 providing for a cut of approximately 45 percent for rents for affordable homes rented out by the National Housing Agency (ANL).
Secretary of State with the Ministry of Regional Development and Public Administration Sirma Caraman explained that following the coming into effect of a regulatory act in 2016, rents for ANL homes increased greatly because the depreciation was included in the rent calculation.
“After a careful analysis, we introduced other correction indicators, such as the construction year, the person’s incomes, and as a result the rent was considerably lowered by some 40 – 45 percent compared to the amount resulted from the calculation so far. The correction was made considering that the ANL housing program is a social program. The ordinance corrects that error that pushed very high the rents for young people living in ANL homes,” Sirma Caraman said on Tuesday
The bill approving OUG No. 30/2017 amending and supplementing Article 8 of Law No.152 / 1998 on the establishment of the National Housing Agency will enter the debate of the Senate plenum, as the first chamber notified.
