  1. How can a CLT remain ‘permanently’ affordable? Even it’s costs will go up over time and it will have to increase rents. CLT’s won’t do anything to curb what you call speculation. If anything a large CLT will only make the surround properties more valuable by decreasing the amount of land available on the open market.

    • What costs are you talking about? Land speculation is the driver of higher housing prices and land trusts take that increase out of the equation for the tenants. An LVT with 100% equal redistribution works even better than a land trust.
