On 31 May 2022, the Saxon Cabinet decided to introduce the Mietpreisbremse for the cities of Leipzig and Dresden. The Mietpreisbremse will come into force upon publication.

The rent at the start of the tenancy may then not be more than ten per cent above the local comparative rent. Flats that were newly built after 1 October 2014 and those that are being re-rented for the first time after extensive modernisation are exempt from the rent brake.
