Since Malta is small we cannot afford to have empty dwellings and continue building on new land. Each person should only be allowed to have one empty dwelling apart from his normal residence (this will allow for villeġġjatura). Extra dwellings are taxed annually if left empty more than 1 year. This will incentive owners to sell or rent out their dwellings, have more availability on the market and push down the rent and property prices.
