Regulation of the Housing Framework Law Sub-heading


Guarantee of alternative housing, the legal pre-emption right and supervision of habitability conditions

Decree-Law 89/2021 of 3 November (the “Decree-Law”) came into force on 4 November and regulates key aspects of the Housing Framework Law (the “HFL”, approved by Law 83/2019 of 3 September).
The HFL establishes the duty to regulate matters such as: (i) the obligations of public bodies regarding the guarantee of alternative housing, (ii) the terms under which these bodies have a legal pre-emption right in the sale of residential properties, (iii) the powers to supervise habitability conditions in the context of rented housing.
This Decree-Law therefore regulates important aspects of the HFL in order to increase the public housing supply.
