Abstract

The social housing sector in Denmark is owned and managed by private non-profit housing associations governed by democratically elected tenants. Despite the private legal status, the sector is subject to detailed public regulation. The key rationale in the sector is to provide universal access to adequate housing. To realise this objective, social housing rents have been regulated in order to make them stay within the means of persons with relative low incomes. In principle, access to social housing in Denmark is universal but demand exceeds supply and access is restricted by a system of waiting lists. 25 per cent of all housing units are reserved for persons with special housing needs, a scheme administered by local government.
