Lisbon City Council sold 1,630 municipal houses from 2008 to 2021, raising €46.8 million. The PSD/CDS-PP leadership, which governs without an absolute majority, wants to complete the ongoing sales, but the opposition will suspend the processes.

Speaking to the Lusa agency, the councillor for Housing, Filipa Roseta, said that the policy of selling municipal dwellings to their tenants began in 2008, during a period in which the PS was at the head of the governance of the city of Lisbon.
