Bill No. 42
Housing (Decontrol) Ordinance (Amendment) Bill Back to List

Thirteenth Legislature (2017 - 2022)

Objects and Reasons

The objects and reasons of this Bill are to address the problems concerning the right to property which were pointed out in certain decisions of the Constitutional Court and of the European Court of Human Rights with the purpose of finding a balance between the rights of the owner of a dwelling house and those of the tenant in need of protection.

The Bill also includes an amendment to the Civil Code which aims at recognising the contribution made by band clubs to culture and to the social identity of Malta and to protect such clubs against eviction from their principal quarters in certain circumstances.

In all cases the proposed amendments provide for compensation to the owner and grant the owner the right to contest situations of disproportionality.
