Rent regulations can take many forms and have different purposes. It is arguedthat the often-used distinction between rst- and second-generation rent controlis too crude to be useful. Five main types of rent control are identied instead.The rst dimension concerns whether the control covers rent changes for sittingtenants or rents generally. The second dimension is whether the aim is to protectthe tenants against rents over the market level, against sudden big increases inrents or if the aim is to keep rents permanently below market levels in attractiveareas. The typology is used to classify and compare the rent control systems in anumber of European countries and North American cities. It is also used todescribe typical patterns of change from ‘harder’ to ‘softer’ rent controls.
