English translation:non-regulated rental housing/non regulated rental dwelling
Explanation:
If the text refers to property in Spain I totally agree with Pat Harp, it certainly refers to housing or dwellings that can be rented without any control on part of the government, since dwellings partly financed by government grants ("de protección oficial" cannot, supposedly, be rented for a price above a certain sum.

Thanks for your help. The important thing was that the housing was not "de protección oficial", but it does not necessarily need to refer to rented property.

non-regulated rental housing


Explanation:
Depends on the context. If some housing is subject to some kind of rent control by the local government, this could refer to housing that does not fall into that category.

Explanation:
The colloquial(although somewhat clumsy) phrase in English would be "non-rent-controlled housing." It's used very commonly in discussions of urban development, the quality of life of apartment dwellers in cities, disputes between tenants and landlords, etc. Hope this helps a little, HC
