Avoiding Intergenerational Conflict: Intermediated Equity Release to Improve Housing Conditions for both the Young and Old People

We argue for the creation of an equity release programme with the intermediation of municipalities in order to reduce under-occupancy and increase housing density, thus augmenting supply for all home-seekers, young people included, while providing an answer to old-age poverty, limiting further land artificialisation and suburban sprawl and improving energy efficiency of the private housing stock.
