Stiftelsen Stockholms Studentbostäder (SSSB) and Stockholms Studenthyresgästers Förening (SSF) (in English, the Stockholm Student Tenants’ Association) have reached agreement on the rent levels for 2020. From January 1st the rent increase will be 1,95 percent for accommodation units in SSSB’s housing stock. Since the agreement for the rent increase refers to calendar year and is distributed monthly, the rent slip for February contains the new monthly rent and the retroactive increase for the month of January. Regarding the housing that has individual measurement of electricity the charge will remain the same as previous, SEK 1.61/kWh, which means SEK 135 /month for 1 room and kitchenette and SEK 260/month for 2 rooms and kitchenette. Supplement to rent for furniture will be the same as previous SEK 850 /year.
During 2019, SSCO and Stockholms studentbostäder have carried out a larger revision of the Instruction for the student housing queue and student housing tenure together. The aim of this revision is partly to create a clearer and more easily accessible document and partly to make sure that the new instruction follows certain industry standards. The new instruction has been accepted by SSCO:s board and will start to apply by January 1, 2020. All matters brought before Stockholms studentbostäder or the Housing Committee and Board of Appeal before then, i.e. up until 31 December 2019, will be handled in accordance with the old instruction. Below is a summary of the changes that may affect you as a customer or tenant at Stockholms studentbostäder: Age limits The age limit for registering in the queue, applying for accommodation and signing the tenancy agreement has been adjusted from 16/18 – 54 years old to 17/18 – 50 years old. Changing co-tenants The primary tenant must submit the new co-tenant’s details within two months of the previous co-tenant moving out. Appealing against a termination of tenancy Applications to the Housing Committee regarding appealing against termination decisions must be submitted no later than eight weeks before the stated termination date (previously six weeks). Subletting The rules for subletting during the summer period (June 1 – August 31) are limited to that the subtenant must be between 18 and 50 years old and a person who studies. Exemptions * Military training must now be mandatory to entitle to an exemption. * Parental leave must be taken out at least two days per study week to entitle an exemption. Parental leave can be used to apply for an exemption until the year the child turns four years old. *Being in the custody of the Swedish Prison and Probation Service no longer entitles an exemption. The Housing Committee handles all applications regarding exemptions from the study and Student Union membership requirements. All exemption applications must be submitted to the Housing Committee no later than two weeks before the first day of the tenancy review period. Failing this you will have to appeal against a possible termination of tenancy agreement after the tenancy review. Free term Applications regarding free terms must be submitted to and approved by Stockholms studentbostäder before the start of the semester (for the semester it applies to). Transfers Transferring a tenancy agreement has been replaced by “Change of [roles] in the tenancy agreement (tenant and co-tenant)”. For a change of [roles] to be approved, the tenant and co-tenant must prove that there are special and strong reasons for why such a change needs to be carried out and that you have been registered on the tenancy agreement together and both have been registered (Sw. folkbokförd) on the address during the past 18 months. The tenant must fulfil the study and Student Union membership requirements as well as have an approved tenancy review for the previous semester. The co-tenant must fulfil the demands for signing a tenancy agreement. The Housing Committee and Board of Appeal SSCO:s board has also submitted a proposal regarding a revision of the Housing Committee and Board of Appeal, to make the decision process shorter and more effective, ensure the expertise and the decision security, and better follow/adapt to industry standards for similar bodies. This change would mean that the Board of Appeal ceases to exist and the Housing Committee thus becomes the only body of appeal. The change would also result in a professionalising the Housing Committee. This change will start to apply by January 1, 2020 along with the other changes in the Instruction.

On October 1, 2019, new rules will apply for subletting of rental accommodations. As before, you always need to apply for permission from us to be able to sublet your home. More information can be found on My pages under Subletting. Once your application for subletting has been granted, you may not charge a higher rent than the one you pay yourself. If you sublet your home furnished, you can add up to 15% on your rent, but no more than that. If you do not follow these rules, you risk losing your contract. If you violate these rules, in addition to losing your contract, you may also be fined or jailed. You are allowed to have a roommate in your home, except for corridor rooms. The right to have a roommate only applies if you live in the accommodation there as well, otherwise you need to apply for subletting. You should be registered on the address where you live. Since July 1, 2018, it is a crime to submit incorrect information or to not notify changed population information to the Swedish Tax Agency when moving. Suspicion of crime will be reported to the police.
If you have paid your student union fee for the autumn -19, you will not see that in My pages, until September 30th passed.
Please note that once you have paid the student union fee, it may take longer now to the start of semester, for your student union to register in the membership database and it will be updated on My pages. If you are not registered for at least 15 credits in the autumn semester, and have paid the student union fee, you will only become a support member. It is not enough to be able to collect credit days. If you do not have a Swedish civic registration number (personnummer), you must ensure that you have the same e-mail address registered on My pages as you have with your student union, otherwise you will not be found in the student union's membership database, and you will not be activated on My pages.
During summer the weather is warm and dry, therefore it is especially important to think about fire safety. Here are some tips. Use the grill areas in our neighborhoods Only use the grill areas in our areas if you want to grill. This applies provided that there is no fire ban. Also make sure that the fire is properly put out before leaving the grill area. Put out cigarettes properly Be sure to put out cigarettes properly. Never leave candles unattended Only use safe light holders and beware of your surroundings, like curtains, blankets etc. Always put out your candles when you leave the room, including tealights. This also applies to candles on balconies. Never leave the stove unattended A forgotten pot can easily catch fire. Do not leave the stove unattended and always turn off the stove when you have used it. Keep the hood filters clean. Grease in the hood can easily catch fire, and the fire may spread further through the ventilation in the house If a fire starts in a pan, try to get a cap on as quickly as possible to smother the fire. Never pour water on a burning stove. Test your fire alarm Test your fire alarm so it works. Press the test button, if there is a beep, it works. If there is no beep, or of it beeps frequently, change the battery or contact your House Caretaker.
