Abstract The article deals with the development of the housing market & its influence on the development of social inequalities in the postcommunist Czech Republic. It originated within the framework of the project 'The Housing Market, Its Regional Differentiation and Social Circumstances,' sponsored by the Grant Agency of the Czech Republic. The different position of households in the housing market is understood not only as a consequence of social inequalities but also as an important source of them. The paper identifies two basic features of housing market development that have profoundly influenced social inequalities in the Czech Republic in the 1990s: the large & rapid increase of regional differences in market prices, & the division of the housing market into several sectors operating under different legal & financial conditions. Special attention is paid to the situation of households renting at market prices & the consequences of the privatization of municipal houses.
