Jobbik Calls on Govt to Launch Home Creation Programme for Youth

MTI-Hungary Today 2020.07.03.

Opposition Jobbik on Friday called on the government to “form a strategic alliance with young people” and launch a preferential rental housing scheme to aid their housing needs.

Approximately half a million young people are unable to start families of their own because they do not have their own flats and high rent prices prevent them from moving out of their parents’ homes, Jobbik deputy leader Dániel Z. Kárpát said.

Increase of Housing Prices Higher Than Net Wage Hike

The home creation programme proposed by Jobbik would bring 5,000-10,000 newly built or renovated low-rent homes onto the market, he said.

Those moving into these homes would be given the opportunity to buy them at cost price after living in them for six to eight years, he added.
