oa Comparative and International Law Journal of Southern Africa - The Swedish tenant-ownership model as an alternative to apartment ownership (sectional titles)
On the whole tenant-ownership represents a fairly uncomplicated means to cope effectively with the Swedish housing problems. 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. Again, the fact that the tenant owners are united in a larger legal entity, namely the cooperative, allows them to bargain collectively in the political sector to safeguard their interests. In this sense the tenant-ownership scheme represents a convincing reflection of the housing policy of the modem welfare state.
