Your landlord or the tenant-owners' association has applied for our assistance in evicting you or your company. We call it enforcing the decision. The decision may be a verdict, a judgment, or a decision of the Regional Rent Tribunal.
Try to sort out the situation
Always quickly make contact with your landlord or tenant-owners' association or their representative (often a debt collection company).
Try to sort out the situation, for example by examining whether it is possible to postpone the eviction (deferment). You can apply to us to postpone the eviction. In some cases, we may decide that you get more time (respite) even if the landlord or tenant-owners' association does not agree to it.
If you have questions, please contact us, your landlord or tenant-owners' association.
If you need advice, you can also contact the Social Services Department and the budget and debt adviser in your municipality. You can find contact details for budget and debt advisers on the Hello Consumer website:
How an eviction works
You get a letter stating what day and time you will be evicted. We send the same information to the landlord and the Social Services Department when it comes to private individuals.
Best to move yourself
The best thing is for you to move yourself, before the eviction is to take place. Then you avoid moving costs. If you move yourself, you must empty the flat, condominium, or premises of things and trash, and return the keys.
Notify the landlord or the tenant-owners' association
Contact the landlord or tenant-owners' association and notify them that you have moved. Also notify us.
Register your move with the Swedish Tax Agency
Register your move with the Swedish Tax Agency so you have the correct registered address. If you have children moving with you, you must also report that they are moving.
File your application before you move or no later than one week after you have moved. Use the Swedish Tax Agency's e-service.
If you don’t move voluntarily
We'll implement the eviction if you don't move voluntarily. If we do not find proper storage for your property following an eviction from premises, we may sell or throw out your property.
Make sure that
- you bring private items that you need in the near term, such as medicines and clothing
- any pets are cared for, otherwise you risk them being put down
- you as an entrepreneur bring your computer and other things when you leave the premises.
The day of the eviction
On the day of the eviction, we will come to your flat, condominium, or premises. The landlord or a representative of the tenant-owners' association also comes there. If you are home, you need to leave the residence immediately.
We change the locks on your residence, premises, or storage unit. On the same day, or a few days later, a moving company empties the residence or premises. Food and rubbish are thrown out.
This happens after the eviction
Your property is stored for a maximum of three months. In some cases, the landlord or the tenant-owners' association takes care of the things.
Your things are thrown out or sold unless you collect them within three months.
Pay the eviction costs
You must pay the moving costs. You may also have to pay for move-out cleaning and storage. If your landlord or tenant-owners' association has incurred other fees and costs, you may have to pay them, too. You can find more information on the website.
You may get a record of non-payment if you are evicted. Swedish Authority for Privacy Protection:
If you have any questions
Contact us if you have questions about where the things are stored and when you need to collect them. If you have more questions, please contact the person storing the property.
