We received the same kind of messages from small landlords, who indicate that they are tired of the impending regulation and want to turn their backs on the Brussels housing market. That is exactly what opponents warn about. The supply then decreases, which may even increase the rental price. Or the market is being bought up by major players. The capital thus ends up in the hands of a very small group, which is exactly the opposite of what this government intends.

Doom messages

But perhaps those doomsday reports are unjustified, and the soup is not eaten as hot as it is served. In many European countries the housing market is heavily regulated, and this does not lead to catastrophes there. If the margin remains high enough, quite a few landlords are satisfied with a little less. Moreover, left-wing measures have always led to a lot of commotion and economic doomsday reports – just think of the shorter working week or paid leave. This later turned out to be untrue.

However, we should not take it too lightly. Brussels is engaged in a large-scale, left-wing experiment that could have major economic consequences. The responsibility for the next government is therefore enormous. Hopefully he will keep a cool head and make quick adjustments where necessary. Starting with the budget.
