oa Comparative and International Law Journal of Southern Africa - The Swedish tenant-ownership model as an alternative to apartment ownership (sectional titles)

Besides providing relative security of title coupled with owner-like powers of use and enjoyment, the relatively low running costs of the institution brings it into reach of a greater percentage of the Swedish population.

In this sense the tenant-ownership scheme represents a convincing reflection of the housing policy of the modem welfare state.
