Cities have trouble to accommodate this new demand for apartments and have seen housing prices climbing very fast. The centres have changed in nature: until the late 1980s large parts were populated by lower income groups that could not afford to move to the suburbs. But during the last two decades, these groups have been gradually pushed out of the city centres that are now mostly dominated by the middle class that are willing (and able) to pay large sums for relatively small homes. In the three cities of this thesis, often even the middle classes can no longer afford a house in the centre.

Statutes do of course exist but they only apply to the situations for which they are specifically written. Even the more general attempts to codify legal principles have a more concrete meaning than the general principles of the European civil codes (Smits, 2002; Zweigert & Kötz, 1998; Zwalve, 2000). The general attempt to collect the principles of private law in one book is typical of civil law. Some authors hold that because of these codifications civil law systems are less flexible and creative than common law systems (Posner, 1992).
