This report provides a review of experiences with financing social housing refurbishment in Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Latvia, Poland and
Slovakia. The report shows large differences in the social housing sector between the three Western European countries and the five new Member States. Apart from differences in energy performance, of major importance is the difference in ownership structure of the social housing stock.
Where the three Western European countries still have a large rental sector, the major
share of the (social) housing stock in the new Member States has been transferred to private ownership.
The review shows that private ownership in buildings with multiple dwellings is acomplicating factor in organizing housing refurbishments. As financing of social housing
refurbishment regards, public grants are limited in their possibility of tackling current
refurbishment needs. The possibilities of using financial sources from the commercial sector are increasing however, both in the old and new Member States.



The overview provided describe the diverse countries regulatory, institutional and financial framework.
