Compulsory social rent and rehousing: the Constitutional Court partially upholds the appeal of unconstitutionality against the Decree-law of the Generalitat de Catalunya 17/2019


This Information Briefing analyses the impact of the Judgment in relation to compulsory social rent and rehousing.

Following the appeal of unconstitutionality with number 2577-2020 filed by the Popular Party Parliamentary Group against the Decree-law of the Government of the Generalitat de Catalunya 17/2019, of 23 December, on 28 January 2021 the Constitutional Court issued a judgment in which it declared several articles of DL 17/2019 to be unconstitutional and null and void. DL 17/2019, among other aspects (e.g. amendments to the revised text of the Catalan Urban Planning Law), modified part of the Catalan regulations on housing, compulsory social rent and rehousing. In the Judgment, the Constitutional Court considered that DL 17/2019 regulated matters that were outside its scope, as they affected the right to property.
