Loss of Homes and Evictions across Europe

A Comparative Legal and Policy Examination

Edited by Padraic Kenna, Sergio Nasarre-Aznar, Peter Sparkes and Christoph U. Schmid

The loss of a home can lead to major violations of a person’s dignity and human rights. Yet, evictions take place everyday in all countries across Europe. This book provides a comparative assessment of human rights, administrative, procedural and public policy norms, in the context of eviction, across a number of European jurisdictions. Through this comparison the book exposes the emergence of consistent, Europe-wide standards and norms.

Chapter 9: Evictions in Slovenia: legal aspects, data limitations and good practices

Maša Filipovič Hrast

Abstract

Slovenia, similar to other Central and Eastern European countries, is marked with high home ownership rates, and due to the specific development of the housing market (ie large-scale privatisation, large share of self-build), it also has lower indebtedness of households. First, the general housing policy context and main structural factors that define housing risks such as the small social rented sector, the small private rental sector and the increasing unemployment and poverty rates due to the economic crisis, will be outlined. Following from that, a summary of Slovenia’s legislation related to evictions which illustrates the level of protection of homeowners and renters against eviction is provided, and the main data on eviction in Slovenia is described. Gaps in the data are also identified. The final section of the chapter presents a selected number of good practice measures with reflections on their limitations. In conclusion, the chapter discusses the findings and addresses the gaps in the knowledge and research in this area.
