ökonomische Grundlagen für ein vernünftiges Mieterschutzgesetz
AbstractThe Swiss law for the protection of tenants does not distinguish between nominal and real interest rates. As a result, rents are massively overindexed in periodes of high inflation. In the period 1990-1996, the structural faults in the swiss law have cost the tenants roughly 9 bio. Fr. The simplest way to eliminate the problems of the current law is to abolish the link between rents and mortgage rate, and permit a full indexation. For macro-economic reasons it would be preferable to smooth this indexation over time.
