A much longed for improvement has finally been implemented by law. Anyone that knows anything about relocation to Sweden in general and housing shortage in Stockholm in particular will welcome this change. Building association can no longer deny an owner the permission to sublet an apartment if they have a reason. It has been difficult to say the least to rent out a flat for short or long term without a “valid” reason. Many buildings have routinely denied people the opportunity to let and therefore incurred unnecessary costs and thereby limited the rental. The Chamber of Commerce has fought an uphill battle against leftist parties in the government for many years and now finally had a very important breakthrough! We see that a lot of landlords are already thrilled by the opportunity to rent out their properties and this of course benefits our expat clients that come here for assignments and need a place to live.
