A civic group survey found that most of the increased public housing in the Moon Jae-in administration does not seem to be able to resolve the actual housing anxiety among the poor.
Many of the public leases claim that they have nothing to do with long-term housing stability, such as private leases or purchase leases.
Citizens' Alliance for Economic Justice Practice (Kyungsilyeon) held a press conference today (25th), saying, "The government said that the inventory of long-term public housing increased by 328,000 units from the end of 2016 to the end of 2019, but 85% of them are real public "The share of housing is very low."
Gyeongsilryeon classified the inventory status of public rental housing disclosed by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport by type and analyzed it by government.
According to the Kyungshilyeon, the public housing inventory increased 328,000 units from 1256,000 units at the end of 2016 to 1584,000 units at the end of 2019.
Gyeongsil Ryeon did not recognize happiness housing, purchase rental, 10-year pre-sale conversion, or jeonse rental as public housing.
This was because it was not conducive to the stability of the common people in the long term.
They named it “fake public housing” for purchase rental and happy housing, and “fake public housing” for 10-year sales conversion and private rental.
For example, in the case of purchase rental, the Korea Land and Housing Corporation (LH) purchases and re-leases existing multi-family or multi-family units.
He pointed out that in the case of chartered leases, local governments sign a charter contract for low-income families and re-lease inexpensively, but they are not held by the public for a long time.
Gyeongsilryeon refers to'real public housing' only for permanent, 50 years, public rental, and long-term jeonse. Of the 328,000 public housing units that have increased over the past three years, only 48,000 units, or 15%, were included.
For this reason, Kyungshilryeon pointed out that the 7.4% long-term public housing inventory rate announced by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport was also wrong.
This is because there are few public housing units that can be rented for more than 20 years, excluding private rentals.
By regime, the Lee Myung-bak administration most often supplied long-term public housing at 300,000 units, and in terms of project approval criteria, the Roh Moo-hyun administration was the largest with 470,000 national rental units.
Gyeongsilryeon analyzed that'real long-term public housing' was supplied before the Roh Moo-hyun administration, but there is a tendency for fake public housing such as purchase rentals and happy houses to increase since then.
“The ratio of public housing in Korea is very low compared to 75% in Singapore and 33% in Nordic countries,” said Kyungshilryeon. “The current public housing policy cannot handle the role of a residential ladder at all.”
He added, "The supply of purchased rental housing should be stopped, and public housing should be supplied in a way that the public directly develops public land and owns the land for a long time."
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport issued an explanation data and refuted the arguments made by the Gyeongsil-ryeon.
The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport said, "Under the Special Act on Public Housing, public rental housing includes not only permanent rental and national rental, but also happiness housing, public rental for sale conversion, purchase rental, and private rental. "Houses".
“Happy housing, private lease, and purchase lease can live for up to 20 years. In particular, if the tenant chooses the house they prefer, LH makes a contract with the landlord and re-leases to the tenant. LH is also responsible, so it's not like a simple deposit support product.”
