|Abstract:||This thesis deals with the theme of rent deregulation in selected countries in Central and Eastern Europe,
attention is paid to the comparison between the Czech Republic and Slovakia. There are theoretically
described the characteristics and impacts of rent control and its possible elimination through
privatization and deregulation. The thesis summarizes the specifics of regulation and deregulation
process in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland since its beginning in the first half of the 20th
century to the present. It focuses on the Czech and Slovak law on unilateral rent increases and a Polish
citizen’s complaint to the European Court of Human Rights. The second part is devoted to a more
detailed comparison of the impacts of regulation, such as the proportion of rental housing in the total
housing stock and the rate of internal migration, in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and in their regions.
