Please note the note on the applicable legal version.

The Housing Binding Act is a German law for housing construction. It was enacted in 1965 as Article 2 of the Law on Increased Ownership of Housing and Ensuring the Purpose of Social Housing . It aims to ensure that those entitled to live live in social housing. For the rent, the cost rent is determined in § 8 : "The person entitled to dispose of the apartment may not leave the apartment for a higher fee than is necessary to cover the ongoing expenses (cost rent)."

As a result of its affiliation with the competing legislation according to Article 74, Paragraph 1, No. 18 of the Basic Law , the Housing Binding Act only applies until the federal states have reorganized housing subsidies . Only §§ 18e, 22 remain valid on the basis of § 2 WofüG. Bavaria , Bremen , Hamburg and Hesse have now passed their own housing association laws.
