Housing Cooperatives

Dernière mise à jour le 15 June 2019

A housing cooperative is a kind of real estate company founded on cooperative principles. Like other cooperatives, its goal is to better serve its participants (employees as well as users). It rests, for decision-making purposes, on the democratic principle “one person, one voice.” Employees and users thus have equal rights.

In some countries, they are also known as “building cooperatives” (Belgium), “cooperative residency companies” (Switzerland), and “residents’ cooperatives” (France).

A housing cooperative is an ordinary multi-person dwelling (usually a building)—small or large, new or old—inhabited by people who are both tenants and the building’s collective owners.
