ABSTRACT

Recently housing rent price is so increase that many poor tenants suffer. In response to rental market instability the government seek legal solution such as rent price control and rental period control. But our country adopts free market system that price is determined by supply and demand in market, so housing rental price is too. Jeonsei that is unique korean housing rental system is based the principle of supply and demand. Lessor can use the money deposit, which lessee pays for rental price during rental period, to real estate investment. Lessee can use rental house at low costs. So the effect of legal solution for housing rental price is restrictive. Law can control housing rental price or rental period in short time, but in longrun it cause short supply and price jump. So it is desirable to solve in market indirectly. Ultimate solution is to provide rental housing in full degree to meet market demands, so the desirable role of law is to help the supply of rental housing. There are many methods that law can use to supply rental housing. One of them is the social housing, which recently many local governments adopt as new way to provide rental housing. Social housing is considered as the third-way in providing rental housing, because it supplies rental housing at law price compared to private lessor and it resolves the problems such as lack of resources, slum that public rental housing encounter. But social housing in korea are confronted with problems to be surmounted. Because most social economic subjects who operate social housing are so small that they can not raise funds needed to buy land. So land and most money that is need for social housing operating are borrowed from public institutions. Because they are not land owner, they play only limited role in suppling rental housing. Now social housing is one attempt to create new rental housing culture, and is not expected to resolve current rental housing problems.
