Adopted by the board of AB Helsingborgshem 9 June 2005.
An available flat is offered to the applicant with the longest directory time.
Although special consideration can be given to
* Reasonable financial resourcesTo become a tenant you must have a reasonable amount left to live on once the rent is paid. We use “Konsumentverket” (The Swedish Consumer Agency’s) calculations for “reasonable costs per month” as our norm when estimating.
** Record of non-payment of debtsAny debts concerning rent for a flat and the like are considered serious. Other debts are considered in each individual case. If you have any form of record of non-payment of debts you must be able to show that you are working actively to solve them. Any prior debt to Helsingborgshem must be settled before you can receive a flat.
*** Negative referencesYou must not have any record of non-payment of rent, disturbing other tenants or neglecting prior flats.
**** Valid home insuranceWhen signing a rental contract you have to be able to prove that you have valid home insurance. If you don’t have home insurance you can fill in an application for home insurance through Helsingborgshem when you sign the rental contract.
***** Housing needs have changedThe concept of changed housing needs refers to changes that the tenant can’t influence i.e. illness, age and/or disability. We consider each separate case individually. We are not able to show any special consideration when it comes to divorce, separation or new additions to the family.
