TERRITORIAL delegate of Public Works and Housing in Almeria, Joaquín Jiménez, has met with representatives of the real estate sector in Almeria to promote renting empty houses in the province.

Mr Jimenez said: “one of the purposes of the Housing Plan 2010-2016… is to facilitate access to housing by citizens on affordable terms and avoid social exclusion by promoting rental market housing, particularly unoccupied properties.”

The delegate added that the government’s role would be to mediate between the public and private sector to bring together to answer the supply and demand for homes to the benefit of property owners and citizens seeking a home.
