The objective of the paper is to explain one phenomenon evident in the transformation of post-socialist states: the restitution of the housing stock. In the paper, the theory of social constructivism, including Kemeny's advanced application of this theory to the field of housing studies, is used to (a) explain the causes for a particular type of property restitution in the Czech Republic and (b) outline its consequences on the role and long-term social meaning of private rental housing.
