New Hous­ing Pol­icy

Beijing Review - - This Week Society -

Bei­jing au­thor­i­ties have be­gun so­lic­it­ing pub­lic opin­ion on a draft house rental pol­icy aimed at pro­tect­ing the rights of ten­ants.

Ac­cord­ing to the draft, gov­ern­ments at the district level should in­crease the sup­ply of houses avail­able for rent around in­dus­trial parks and on col­lec­tively used land. Newly built houses should be rented to those work­ing in the in­dus­trial parks or in the vicin­ity, and the ar­eas should be equipped with ed­u­ca­tion and med­i­cal fa­cil­i­ties.

An on­line su­per­vi­sory plat­form will be set up, which will also pro­vide house rental in­for­ma­tion and elec­tronic rental con­tracts, process ap­pli­ca­tions and su­per­vise trans­ac­tions.

The draft guar­an­tees the ed­u­ca­tion right of ten­ants’ chil­dren. Bei­jing res­i­dents who do not own houses can ap­ply for their chil­dren to re­ceive com­pul­sory ed­u­ca­tion in the area near their rented home, pro­vided they have lived in the area for at least three years and one mem­ber of the cou­ple has worked in the area for at least three years.

Res­i­dents not orig­i­nally from Bei­jing can also ap­ply for their chil­dren to re­ceive com­pul­sory ed­u­ca­tion in the area of their rented
