As rent costs rise dramatically, Berliners are being priced out of their neighborhoods and forced to the city's peripheries. Even Berlin's new rent cap can't stop investment companies from buying up buildings and then raising rents to cover the costs of modernization work. But tenants are joining forces to stand up and protect their communities.
Well, we don't actually have property tax at all, I just called it so because it is the closest in description. Every city just charges a small amount that goes into the pot earmarked for communal improvements (roads, parks, kindergartens etc.)
