Krzysztof Nowak - The Application of the Time Dummy Variable Method for Calculating the Hedonic Index of Housing Prices at Mid-Size Markets
Over the last few years there have been rapid changes on the Polish real estate market. Significant price fluctuations have emphasised the need for the implementation of new tools to measure changes in the housing market. Most of housing market articles which appear in the media are based on the calculation of average or median prices per sqm. However, these measures do not include the quality adjustment of tested goods, which in turn is an advantage of hedonic price indices. In the paper, the application of the time dummy variable methods for calculating the hedonic index of housing prices was examined, using the data for the city of Rzeszów.

Iwona Foryś - Economic Premises for Updating the Annual Fees for Perpetual Usufruct of Land in the Recession in the Property Market
The fee update for perpetual usufruct (pu) of land is the subject of very going issue, despite the downturn in the real estate market., The process is particularly painful for users of perpetual estate in the centers of large cities, where prices are rising despite the crisis. The latter are in fact the basis for updating the market value of the land property for the purposes of calculating the new charges. The decision of the owner of land to take procedures, aiming to update these fees should be preceded by a detailed analysis of the market, confirming the economic premises for upgrade fees. Theoretical considerations are supplemented by empirical analysis, carried out in the local real estate market.
Keywords: perpetual usufruct land; revaluation of annual fees; value of real estate

Iwona Zaręba - Controversies in Connection with the Definition of a Building Structure in the Polish Property Tax
The fact of linking the annual rate of property tax with the value of a building structure results in a constant, significant financial burden in the budgets of companies. Simultaneously, the definition of a building structure is vague, which causes difficulties for taxpayers and leaves space for open-ended interpretations of tax authorities. The size of the problem is represented by numerous legal cases in relation to the building structure definition and in particular, by the definition analysis conducted by the Constitutional Tribunal. Presently, the change of the definition of the building structure is postulated.

Michał Domińczak - Economic Values of an Urban Design Project - American Experiences of the New Urbanism
The article is an attempt to depict to the Polish readers, especially those dealing with housing investment (but also to all specialists related to the property market), a phenomenon of the movement of the New Urbanism. In spite of near thirty-years history and its Polish roots, there have been almost no broader interest in that issue in Poland so far. A short history, ideas and rules of the New Urbanism were presented in the article. Furthermore, relying on examples of US. research, a crucial role of a quality of urban and architectural projects in the investment process is explained. Last but not least, one of goals of this article is to trigger a concern of a broader discussion about theory and practice of the New Urbanism movement, especially in the context of urban planning, land use, and property market in Poland.

Izabela Rudzka - Determining Degraded Housing Areas in the Light of Regulations Regarding Revitalization Funding
Guideline of Ministry of Regional Development on housing have created the potential conditions for implementation of regeneration projects in the areas of housing, co-financed from the EU funds. The inadequacy of the detailed provisions of these guidelines in relation to the definitional understanding of revitalization and the limited data aggregation of Polish official statistics caused the deficiencies in determining degraded areas. The result was the implementation of repair or modernization projects mainly. Set criteria for determining degraded areas, by using inappropriate reference (in relation to regional indicators) have resulted in the exclusion of many urban territories from revitalization activities financed from the EU sources. The content of this article is to present and evaluate these criteria, their impact on the way of the delimitation of the areas and the conclusions suggesting necessary changes in these guidelines.

Zbigniew Malara, Janusz Kroik - Localisation as an Attribute of Competitiveness on the Economic Class Hotel Market
The article presents the results of the authors’ research into the influence of localisation factors on price behaviours (approval) of customers of economy class hotels in Wroclaw, with the identical purpose of stay. The factors affecting the price level of the hotel service were checked. A customer opinion poll with 43 premises was conducted. With the use of the factor analysis, substantial conditions were appointed. Out of seven formulated localisation premises (value attributes), three were included in the set of significant ones. Such preferences were affected by the tourist purpose of the stay. This purpose determines the preference of the localisation assessed according to the purpose of stay over standard localisation dimensions (distance from the station, airports, centre, roads). Creating competitiveness via localisation has solid bases but requires the examination of detailed conditions, which is shown in this article.

Iwona Szymczak - The Access to a Fixed Location not Belonging to Telecommunication Entrepreneur versus the End User’s Right to Choose a Service Provider
The main subject of this article is the presentation of basic differences between the legal construction of the access to a fixed location (telecommunication infrastructure) which belongs to the real property owner who is not a telecommunication entrepreneur (so called the last mile access to property) and the general regulation on the access to the fixed location which belongs to another entrepreneur (which is governed by Art. 139 of the telecommunication law). The law requires the property manager to allow access to the fixed location situated on the real property. He is also entitled to conclude a contract on it. The article concludes that this regulation does not protect the interests of end users, especially those who have a strong legal title to the dwelling space in the building and who are simultaneously the co-owners of the common part of the property. The final conclusion is that the law should protect the common interest of end users so that the decision to establish the access shall be taken by the majority of votes of the end users who have a strong legal title to the dwelling space in the building.
