Catalonia and Valencia, the two communities with the most properties in the social rental fund.

 Catalonia, the Valencian community and Andalusia are the regions with the biggest number of properties in the social housing fund (SHF) created by banks in order to rent to those who have suffered the eviction from their homes since 2008 and comply with certain socioeconomic requirements. (…)

The SHF has 5047 properties, a quantity which is lower than the 5841 ones committed by banks in the agreement that regulates the functioning and the features of the fund signed last January.

These differences can be explained by the fact that Caixabank has organized its contributions to the fund on a quarterly base.

As explained by the bank in its web page, it has awarded 200 properties to the fund in this first call, and will be increasing this number throughout the year until reaching the 850 announced properties. (…)
