Summary To provide a context for the analysis of the private rental sector in the post-socialist countries, this chapter clarifies the term 'private rental' and explains its different meanings in different countries, as well as its various forms. The chapter draws attention to the legal-economic relationship of the actors in private renting and the sociological/legal meaning in the context of national housing regimes. The chapter furthermore describes the four dominant housing policy approaches of the last century that have impacted the changing position of private renting. Last, but not least the chapter focuses on key areas of housing policy intervention in private renting that could help to explain the development of the sector, as well as the sector's future development.
