The article systematizes the factors affecting the functioning of the housing and communal services` sphere (HCS), such as economic, technical, informational, institutional factors, the influence of which is negative; and factors described from the standpoint of the competition theory positively characterizing the sphere of housing and communal services. The complexity of carrying out activities is combined with a high proportion of schedulability and forecastability. Competition among companies is possible, but most likely it can be about their competitive advantages based on innovative technologies, or competitive advantages, which will be based on a more rational use of available resources in the implementation of economic activities.
