Tips to you that is about to move in with us

There is much to consider when it’s time to move. Therefore, we have compiled a list that covers the most important. Welcome to Heimstaden!

1. Report the change of address in good time

You need to make a change of to your new address in good time (at least five working days) before the move. Please contact Skatteverket, either by letter or at www.skatteverket.se. Certain authorities will automatically receive your new address detail

• Social Insurance
• Municipal administrations
• The County Council
• Pliktverket
• Tax Register
• Government personadressregistrret (SPAR)
• Swedish Church
• Transport Agency

Remember that you must inform your new address to associations, insurance companies, banks, newspapers, friends and acquaintances, etc. You can also order forwarding of your mail from the old to the new address. Contact Svensk Adressändring for more information.

2. Move the electricity and telephone

When you move, you need to sign a new electricity contract at your new address, and cancel your old subscription to your previous address. Contact your electricity provider for more information about how to do and when. You must also sign a move of your telephone and Internet subscriptions. Contact your phone company and your internet provider for more information.

3. Make sure that your new apartment is undamaged and clean

Your new apartment should naturally be in good condition and properly cleaned when you move in. The apartment is always inspected before you move in, but it can still be deficiencies that have not been discovered. If you are not satisfied with something, it is important that you immediately get in touch with us, so that we can fix the problem. You can’t claim and get reimbursed for poor cleaning if you have cleaned the apartment after you moved in.

4. Check your keys

When you move in, you get a number of original keys, like the apartment door and laundry room. The keys are always stamped with a number. Make sure you got the right keys and the correct number keys. Remember that you are responsible for the keys when you receive them.

5. Rent payment

The rent is paid monthly in advance, latest by the last day of the month. Rent notices ar sent to you quarterly, one for each month. You can also choose to pay the rent by direct debit or electronic invoicing. You will find forms for direct debit or e-billing here. On My account you can find more information about your rent and your lease.

6. Parking

We offer parking spaces in many of our areas. Please contact your local office for more information

7. Sign a home insurance

Remember to sign a home insurance. All our new tenants will receive two months of free insurance from Trygg-Hansa. If you are a new tenant with us, you will receive a mail dirctly from Trygg-Hansa to continue the insurance agreement. If you already are a tenant of ours you can receive a discount equivalent to two months of free insurance for the first year.
