Mr President! Mr President, ladies and gentlemen! The subject “Housing” and “rent – remains such as Living in large cities affordable” is one of the great social issues of our time. There are various problem situations. There are people who move to the cities and ask yourself: How can I find an apartment? There are people whose lives change, looking for a different apartment. There are also people who are affected by a change of termination, and in the same area want to stay, where to rent, but only higher prices can continue. And there are people who are looking for a home, as a retirement or for your family. For all the different problem, the policy of differentiated responses were. Therefore, the Black-and-White-painting bothers me today in this discussion: The rental price brake is not effective, this is not effective, the works. It is a total concept, and this concept, ladies and gentlemen, we.

(Applause from the CDU/CSU)

I want to start with the constitutional situation. It’s been said that Rent control was unconstitutional. This is demonstrably false. The Federal constitutional court has on 18. July 2019 in the non-adoption decision clearly ruled that the Rent control according to the Constitution, and a Cabinet determination of property for a legitimate purpose, namely in order for the rental price increase in major cities justifiably steamed can be. I ask all of you to take this decision.

(Applause from the Abg. Dr. Eva Högl [SPD] – Bettina Stark-Watzinger [FDP]: This does not relieve you of the responsibility to procure more living space!)

But if we talk about the aspect of the constitutional order, then we must not argue on the question of the rent cap in Berlin, with surveys, with 60 or 70 percent approval. Regardless of how the survey design looks, it must be said: The constitutional distribution of powers between the Federal government and the länder, and the question of how strong in the fundamental ownership right to intervene may be, is not the subject of polls, but the constitutional order of our basic law.

(Applause from the CDU/CSU and the FDP)

President Dr. Wolfgang Schäuble:

Mr Ullrich, will you take a question of the colleague Bayram? – Say Yes or no.

Dr. Volker Ullrich (CDU / CSU):

Yes, please.

President Dr. Wolfgang Schäuble:

Thank you. – Ms. Bayram.

Canan Bayram (BÜNDNIS 90/THE GREENS):

Thank You, Mr President. – Thank You, Mr. What do you think, that the Federal constitutional court has today rejected an application for a temporary injunction against the rent cover?

(Applause from deputies of the LEFT, Michael Grosse-Brömer [CDU/CSU]: Because of “too early”, not in the thing! – Dr. Jan-Marco Luczak [CDU/CSU]: for formal reasons!)

Dr. Volker Ullrich (CDU / CSU):

This is likely to be due to the fact that the Berlin act, it is not obvious manufactures even out.

(Michael Grosse-Brömer [CDU/CSU]: that is Exactly right!)

A law that is not yet produces even, has no legal effect to the outside. Therefore, an application for a temporary injunction is in unsubstanziiert. You should know also.

(Applause from the CDU/CSU)

Against this Background, I carry a very with version. We leave this question in Karlsruhe to discuss.

(Interjection of the Abg. Matthias W. Birkwald [LEFT])

I would like to once again point out what it’s all about us today. Today we will discuss a small excerpt of our housing policy, namely, the question that we ask ourselves how we can prevent that, especially in tight housing markets, the rise in rental rates continues to rise. We want that the increase will continue to be dampened a bit. If you look at the spring report, the real estate industry to 2020, we find that, for the first Time in many years the increase is flattened. This also shows that this isolated action takes effect.

(Applause from the Abg. Dr. Jan-Marco Luczak [CDU/CSU], and Dr. Eva Högl [SPD])

Against this Background, it is, I believe, is certainly a legitimate concern, to extend the notice period to 30 months, because we run a balance of interests between the position of the landlord and the tenant because on the one hand, the tenant who is happy to find an apartment that is not of rügen in the Situation is often the same. On the other hand, for the landlord, if he sees a piece of far the danger of too much rent is demanded to have even after several months of back pay, also have an economic incentive to reveal from the outset is the right rent. That’s sort of the balancing of interests that we make in this law, and I think that is a reasonable compromise in a great Whole, ladies and gentlemen.

(Applause from the CDU/CSU as well as from members of the SPD)

I don’t want to point to the conclusion that it is in our policy alone to the regulation of rent. In the year 2019, there were 350 000 building permits. The results overall, with the existing building permits, a backlog of building permits from 700 000. We have introduced tax incentives for housing. The housing allowance was increased twice and becomes more dynamic. In the years 2020 and 2021, the country will get EUR 2 billion for housing. The should spend the countries also

(Applause from the CDU/CSU)

In addition, the land Commission has made proposals on how we can on the one hand, the requirements for the Build and on the other hand, in the framework of the land-use plan and more surfaces. The overall concept that I’m talking about results.

Housing is a major social issue of our time. To solve the problem, is only differentiated. We will decide today is another important building block. I ask you for consent.

(Applause from the CDU/CSU as well as from members of the SPD)
