If departing tenants sell access to rent-controlled apartments, whi is likely to end up with the apartments? How else might scarce rent-controlled apartments be distributed?

1) the highest bidders will end up with the appartment, with the "economic rent" from the value of a rent controlled apt being split between the departing and new tenent.

2) how else might they be distributed? In a multitude of ways.

a) remove the rent controls and let the market distribute.

b) keep the rent controls but empower a government agency to do the distributing.

c) keep the rent controls but with limited and short leases. Re-distribute the apt after the end of the lease.

d) Mandate that tenents in rent-controlled meet some easily-measured condition.

e) impose a special or civic duty to tenents

f) impose a special tax on tenents.

Be creative and you could come up with additional methods.
