It is argued that the major merit of this approach is that it generates market incentives and signals in the production of homes and services and supply-side subsidies are well-targeted. Efficient production and good targeting could also result in the more efficient use of housing allowances. Taking a broader view than that adopted by Maclennan and More, the state-agent approach can be seen as one version of a ‘contract approach’ to the provision of social housing. Under this approach, an organisation separate from central or local government has a contract with the state to provide and manage social housing in return for payments from, or authorised by, central or local government.

However, these classifications do not go hand in hand with any particular type of landlord. It is not only in Germany where it is possible for private persons (individuals) or companies to be involved in social renting. With the exception of the Netherlands, social housing can be supplied by commercially oriented organisations in all the countries under study. 2 Their goals also differ and they contribute to a decrease in the gap between social and market renting in different ways. Social housing supply by commercial landlords means the break-down of the traditional (in many countries) division between suppliers of social housing (public landlords and non-profit organisations) and market renting (commercial landlords).

The rent level and quality of the accommodation in a wider sense (dwelling and neighbourhood) are the first two aspects that we view as contributing to the substitutability of housing for the consumer. The relationship between the rent to be paid and the quality of housing should follow a similar pattern in each sector. 1, is an important indicator of the probability of a high level of substitutability. 4 If there is complete segregation between social and market rented housing with the former offering low-quality accommodation in poor neighbourhoods and the latter offering high-quality housing in pleasant locations, the degree of substitutability will be low and the gap will be large.
