Social Residential Construction - ERS

The Municipal Administration, through the development of Social Residential Housing (ERS) in its various aspects, aims to guarantee a wider offer of quality housing at agreed rents, integrating with the activation of the public-private partnership public initiatives, no longer supported by adequate public funding, for the construction of affordable housing. 

Attention is paid to all those social categories of citizens who, although outside the mechanisms of access to public residential construction, do not have adequate economic capacity to find satisfaction for their housing needs in the real estate market proposals; this in an attempt to construct a complex response, which sees the affirmation of the concept of home understood as a "service".

The primary aim is to encourage a "social mix" by providing housing sectors characterized not only by the presence of subsidized housing but also by different contractual rental regimes.

The definition of ERS finds regulatory reference in art. 9 paragraph 1 of the Implementation Rules of the PGT Rules Plan in force and is regulated by City Council Resolution no. 42 of 11.10.2010.

They fall into this category:

  • subsidized subsidized construction in transfer;  
  • cohabitation construction with shared services (co-housing) for sale.   
  • subsidized subsidized housing for rent with future sale agreement;
  • building for rent at an agreed rent;
  • buildings rented at an agreed rent;
  • moderate rent rental construction;
  • public housing rented at social rent;
  • affiliated residences for university students.

The assignment and management of Social Residential Housing is completely entrusted to private operators. For information or documentation it is therefore necessary to contact the operator/owner directly.

The assignees of the housing types of Social Residential Building, excluding those included in the social rent rental for which the specific provisions set out in the reference legislation apply and those relating to the occupants of university residences, must possess, pursuant to City Council Resolution no. . 42 of 11.10.2010 and City Council Resolution no. 73 of 21.12.2007, the following subjective requirements, as they comply with the provisions of the law and regulations in force on the matter:

  • Italian citizenship or of a state belonging to the European Union or of another state, if the right of assignment is recognized in conditions of reciprocity with international treaties, or the foreigner is the holder of a residence card or in possession of a residence permit;
  • registered residence or carrying out exclusive or main work activity in the Municipality of Milan or in the Metropolitan City;
  • total income of the family unit and/or of the individual assignee, resulting from the last tax return, not exceeding the maximum established annually by the Lombardy Region for access to subsidized housing, increased by 25% whether income from employment or self-employment, and with the legally required reduction for each dependent child, indicated in Annex 3 of Resolution no. 73 approved by the City Council on 21 December 2007;
  • the declarant, or the spouse who is not legally separated and/or cohabiting, is not the owner of the right to property or other real rights to enjoy accommodation suited to the needs of the family unit in the national territory, with the exception of the buyer who undertakes to rent the accommodation acquired pursuant to the C.C. resolution n. 42/2010 (DCC 42/2010) or in the territory of the Municipality of Milan or the Metropolitan City (DCC 73/2007) - NB. requirement defined by the individual agreement. For the purposes of verifying the aforementioned requirement, it is agreed that, pursuant to art. 1351 of the Civil Code, must be presented by the interested party at the time of signing the preliminary purchase deed or in the assignment report, the commitment to sell any accommodation owned and the relevant sales deed must then be produced to the relevant officer before who will sign the deed. In the event that the purchaser took advantage of the contribution or subsidized financing for the purchase of the previous accommodation, he/she will not be able to benefit in any way from similar public contributions or subsidized financing, according to the regional legislation in force on the matter. 
  • absence of previous assignment of ownership, to a member of one's immediate or future family unit, of accommodation suited to the needs of the family unit, agreed upon and/or created with public contribution or subsidized financing in any form, granted by the State, the Region, by local authorities or other public bodies;
  • absence of previous rental assignment of a public residential building, if the release is due to an administrative forfeiture order for having used the accommodation or related appurtenances for illicit activities resulting from judicial and/or public security measures, to pursuant to the art. 8, paragraph 1 letter. d) of the Regional Regulation of 10 February 2004, n. 1 “General criteria for the assignment and management of public residential housing”;
  • not having been evicted from public housing for non-payment in the last 5 years;
  • not having occupied, without title, public residential housing in the last 5 years.

The approval of the schemes will take place following the approval of the Territorial Government Plan adopted by the City Council with resolution dated 5.3.2019. The safeguard measures will be operational from that date.
