Lithuania

According to recent statistics Lithuania has around 3.37 Million inhabitants.

Approximately 800,000 of the 1.3 million households live in one of more than 30,000 multi-apartment residential buildings.

The majority of the Lithuanian population (66%), live in multi-apartment buildings constructed in the period from 1960-1990.

Population:  3.37 Mio.
Number of multi-family buildings: 38,000
Total number of flats:
1.3 Mio.
Number of flats in multi-family buildings: 800,000
Number of flats per 1000 inhabitants: 385
Ownership share: 97%

Since 1990 Lithuania has been privatising apartments in multi-family buildings. Currently, 97% of the housing stock is privately owned and only 3% of apartments belong to local municipalities and are used as social housing stock.

Institutions responsible for housing are the Ministry of Environment and the Housing and Urban Development Agency (HUDA), which administrates housing refurbishment programmes.

The principal documents for housing sector and refurbishment of the multi-family buildings, are:

  • Lithuanian Housing Strategy, approved by Lithuanian Government in 2004. The Strategy foresees to renovate 70% of the multi-apartment dwelling houses by 2020, and reduce the cost of heat energy up to 30%. more.
  • “Programme for the Modernisation of Multi-family Buildings”, which started in 2005. more
