An Analysis of the German Tenant Protection Law

Author

  • Homburg, Stefan

Abstract

The article analyzes the welfare impact of Germany's tenant protection law. It shows why tenants do not demand protection in a market equilibrium, notwithstanding that moving expenses may be considerable. Under this assumption, tenant protection enforced by the law makes tenants worse off in the long run, whereas the number of actual evictions remains unchanged.
