STOCKHOLMS STADS BOSTADSFÖRMEDLING AB
Stockholms Stads Bostadsförmedling AB arranges rental flats under original leases. You must apply to
the housing queue to get a flat via the Housing Service. You must be at least 18 years of age and have
a Swedish personal ID number or coordination number to apply.
You apply to the housing queue by filling out and submitting a housing application. You may order
the housing application form by phone or online at www.bostad.stockholm.se, or pick one up in the
visitor reception area. There is an annual fee of SEK 275 to be included in the housing queue. The
Housing Service will send you a bill for the queue fee once a year.
How quickly you can get a flat depends on where you want to live and how much rent you can pay. In
2003, the waiting time for a standard flat in the outskirts of the city was three to six years. There were
flats available with even shorter waiting times, usually in new buildings with relatively high rents. All
vacant flats that the Housing Service gets in are posted in our automated phone service and on the
Internet. To get a flat, you must be active and register for the vacant flats in which you are interested.
You use the Housing Service’s Internet and automated phone services to register your interest in flats.
You can also contact Customer Service for that purpose.
New flats are added all the time, but are usually available for registration of interest for one week. You
can register interest at any time during the registration period. You are allowed a maximum of three
simultaneous registrations and three simultaneous housing offers.
After the registration period, the 10-20 people who have been in the queue the longest are given the
opportunity to view the flat. It is very important that you keep information concerning your address,
income, and employer current to prevent missing out on housing offers. You may reject housing offers
that do not suit you as many times as you wish.
