'With the "Mietshäuser Syndikat" we want to take houses off the rental market so that they are no longer objects of speculation. Our house has no owner, therefore no one can sell it, speculate with it or raise the rent. We live here with a total of 20 people between the ages of 3 and 52 years.'

'I really enjoy living in a political project like this because it is very important to me that people try to deal with one another more consciously.'

'What is great about life at the "Grafschaft" is that we live here with many politically active people who support each other in solidarity. We shape the project by making all decisions together by consensus.'

'It's not just about our group and the here and now, it will remain so in the future that the house is managed by those who live in it.'

Grafschaft 31
"Grafschaft 31" is a residential project on the lively outskirts of Münster and the first project of the "Mietshäuser Syndikat" in the area.
