Our rental policy

In order to create pleasant and attractive housing areas with satisfied tenants, we work according to a rental policy. We have no housing queue or any scoring system. Victoria Park strives for a mixed tenant composition, i.e. older and younger, students, workers, families with children and pensioners. This means that we reserve the right to freely choose among our applicants for vacant apartments. We see every rental as the start of a long lease. To apply for an apartment, you must meet our basic requirements.

Our basic requirements for renting a home

  • The applicant(s) must be 18 years of age and personally attend the presentation of the apartment.
  • Applicants must have a fixed gross income of at least 2 times the rent. Income before tax is based on work, pension or student funding.
  • Housing grants ("bostadsbidrag") can be included as a supplement to income.
  • Social security ("försörjningsstöd") or introduction benefits ("etableringsstöd", "etableringsersättning") are not allowed as a supplement to income.
  • A guarantor ("borgensman") may be approved in some cases.
  • We order a credit report on everyone that submits an application. We do not approve applicants with payment notes or debts.
  • Applicants must have good housing references.
  • There must be a valid home insurance policy.
  • The number of people living in the home must be reasonable in relation to the size of the apartment.

If you are already living with us and want to move to another one of our apartments, we want you to meet the following criteria

  • You must have lived with us for at least 12 months.
  • You should have paid the rent on time and not disturbed your neighbours.
  • You must have an approved income and have no payment notes.
  • The inspection of the current apartment must be carried out, and any damage in connection with the inspection must be paid before signing a new lease.
  • If you live in an apartment that has not been renovated in a while, you can get priority, primarily in the same city where you live today.
