The waiting list of applicants for renting a municipal flat

The waiting list of applicants for the tenancy of a municipal flat not entrusted to the administration of a city borough is formed by a list of applicants which an expert committee subsequently recommends to the mayor for the conclusion of tenancy contracts for flats.
Pursuant to section 3 (6) of Generally Binding Ordinance No. 1/2006 on the tenancy of flats and (living) areas in facilities intended for permanent housing, the professional advisory committee to the city’s mayor (currently the Committee for Social Affairs, Health and Housing Development of the Bratislava City Council) submits this waiting list to the mayor for a decision on the assignment of municipal flats for tenancy as is necessary.

Renting a municipal flat

The city of Bratislava has primarily been dealing with the housing issues of its inhabitants by allocating municipal flats outside of projects. The largest number of housing units of the capital city are in this group.
In accordance with the Statute and Approved Decision No. 24/2016 of the Mayor of Bratislava, Capital City of the Slovak Republic, which regulates the procedure for the allocation of municipal rental flats owned by the city and not entrusted to the administration of a city borough, tenancy contracts are concluded for a maximum of two years with the possibility of repeated extensions in accordance with the conditions arising from Generally Binding Ordinance No. 1/2006 and the tenancy contract.
There is no limit to the maximum duration of the tenancy, provided that the specified conditions are met. This is meant as a permanent housing solution for residents.
