AbstractThe paper discusses the problems of managing municipal housing resources in Poland and the Czech Republic in terms of the issues that accompany municipal resources management. The scope of the research includes the specification of the size of housing resources in both countries, a presentation of the general conditions of municipal housing management and conducting detailed analyses in selected cities (Wrocław - Poland, Hradec Králové - Czech Republic), concerning rent arrears and recapitalization of the housing issue. The study analyzes the deficiencies in adapting residential premises to current housing standards. It was determined that the average age of buildings with municipal and social apartments in Wroclaw in 2018 was 100 years, and the average degree of wear was 44.26%. A vast majority of residential buildings that belong to municipal housing resources were built before World War II. The situation is similar in Hradec Kralove. The apartments require renovation and reconstruction works. They are mostly occupied by the poorest group of residents, which generates additional problems with rent arrears. Although the rent rates in apartments owned by the city Wrocław are very low, below 3% of the replacement value for the Lower Silesian Voivodeship, a significant part of residents still have permanent rent arrears. The research revealed that a significant majority of buildings owned by the analyzed municipalities require renovation works due to their age, general state of repair and the necessity to adjust them to the currently binding technical and construction regulations.
