Abstract

The Dutch public housing sector provides us a clear case of credibility. Credibility is
conceptualized as a phenomenon of trust, attributed in the public opinion to housing
corporations. Housing corporations are subordinated to central government by law. Upward of 1990 they were granted trust and freedom of operation by the government. Since 2005 they became subject of public criticism, indicating a first loss of credibility. In order to understand confusing observations in the period from 2006 to 2011, public attributions of trust are related to fairness. Some hypotheses are deduced and tested, giving evidence of trust violating actions and opportunistic consequences.
