Skip to comments.Germany Confiscating Homes to Use for Migrants [Hamburg]
Posted on 05/14/2017 7:38:57 AM PDT by Olog-hai
Authorities in Hamburg, the second-largest city in Germany, have begun confiscating private dwellings to ease a housing shortage one that has been acutely exacerbated by Chancellor Angela Merkels decision to allow more than two million migrants into the country in recent years.
City officials have been seizing commercial properties and converting them into migrant shelters since late 2015, when Merkel opened German borders to hundreds of thousands of migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Now, however, the city is expropriating residential property units owned by private citizens.
In an unprecedented move, Hamburg authorities recently confiscated six residential units in the Hamm district near the city center. The units, which are owned by a private landlord, are in need of repair and have been vacant since 2012. A trustee appointed by the city is now renovating the properties and will rent them against the will of the owner to tenants chosen by the city. District spokeswoman Sorina Weiland said that all renovation costs will be billed to the owner of the properties.
The expropriation is authorized by the Hamburg Housing Protection Act (Hamburger Wohnraumschutzgesetz), a 1982 law that was updated by the citys Socialist government in May 2013 to enable the city to seize any residential property unit that has been vacant for more than four months. [ ]
In November 2015, lawmakers in Berlin considered emergency legislation that would have allowed local authorities to seize private residences to accommodate asylum seekers. The proposal would have authorized police forcibly to enter private homes and apartments without a warrant to determine their suitability as housing for refugees and migrants.

The nazis were always allied with islamists.
Units were empty for the last 5 years and in poor repair. Now the landlord won’t have to pay for demolition. The rapefugees will do it for him.
Just say “no” to Muslim refugees, turn them all away and let God sort them out.
It, frankly, doesn’t matter one jot if that’s not PC, because PC makes PCdiots out of people who should remember 1400 years of history.
DDR is baaack.
Now the landlord wont have to pay for demolition.
= = =
But he has to pay to rehab them before said demolition.
You (probably) heard it here first: Mercedes Volkswagen BMW, etc. Will become American or Spanish (VW) or British or Russian (!) companies as a preventative survival move.
SSDD. It never left.
It's that culture of death thing. Both belief systems celebrate death and destruction.
You vill accept your new replacements! Heil Angela!
Time to set up shadow renters. There will be a lot of tenants names Johann Schmidt "living" in these apartments.
Just like the commies and the fascists. The dictators always take what isn’t their’s
It’s like watching a corpse rot. Perhaps it’s time to bury it.

In Socialism, you don’t own anything.
I’d burn it to the ground, after cancelling the insurance.
That’s not my name!
(and why are people always shouting it?)
I could see a growing black market for paid arsonists ....
to be sure - this is only in Hamburg & Berlin the most socialist places in Germany. SF, Chicago, and Santa Monica are similiar places with similar city councils
