What letting agency services do you offer?
Residensportalen has extensive experience helping landlords find suitable tenants and to have a safe and professional rental or a sublet. We offer 3 different options: Premium, Plus and Basic status. It's free to advertise on Residensportalen. However , there are services to buy if you want more help with your rental or sublet. After your registration you will immediately be activated as a Basic Property (you advertise free of charge).
I've been activated as a Basic Property , what does it mean ?
That means you can advertise your property for free. You have the possibility after activation to purchase certain services under "Plus Services " on your profile page. Basic Properties are often those who are selected by medium-sized companies , smaller companies and individuals. Outside Stockholm larger companies also book showings of Basic Properties . Tenants will contact you directly after they have gained access to our database of properties and if they match your criteria . To be attractive to the large companies we recommend that you upgrade your items to Plus Property. You do so by buying an additional service such as contract signing or a plus upgrade under "Plus Services" in your profile page. After upgrading, you immediately convert to Plus Property and will be prioritized by the large companies, international mobility agents and also relocation agents looking for properties in Sweden. Log in today and look under "Plus Services" to maximize your opportunity to find a great tenant.
What services can I buy as a Basic Property?
Residensportalen will write the lease based on the rental law and the special conditions of your sublet (conditions vary and the rental law varies based on those variances). The contracts are always written by a registered rental agent and follow Swedish rental law. This service can be purchased and used even if you do not find your tenant via Residensportalen. The lease has a Swedish and English section in order to facilitate for non-Swedish speakers. The lease contract will be sent using a special software to collect signatures electronically (should you wish), increasing the security and ease of the lease process.

Preparing instructions can be just as important as the actual lease agreement. This word template, you can modify and add to suit your property but includes the important instructions and regulations for your property. The tenant should sign this document on the transfer date. Without accurate written instructions so it is difficult to obtain compensation for damages.

We will inspect floors, walls and fixed installations such as kitchen cabinets, appliances etc and note current condition. The inspection document will serve as a guide to determine wear and tear after the tenant moves out in order to avoid discussion and debates regarding the wear and tear of the tenancy. This service is only available in Stockholm at this time. We will do this on site at your home, prepare the document at our office and then send it to you electronically in PDF format with instructions on how to properly get signatures on move-in day. The service does not include documentation of inventory.
Price is determined by size, condition and location of the property.
More about the Premium Service...
How do you decide if a home qualifies as a Premium Property?
It depends on many factors such as location, our workload and the type of housing you have. Unfortunately we do not offer premium services outside the Stockholm area. We also have many loyal customers that have been our Premium client for years and they are first in cue. Our workload at your registration will matter because the service and time spent on a Premium Properties are extensive in order to deliver the service we are known for. Premium Properties must also meet certain criteria in order for us to be able to give your property our Premium stamp. This means that you have a home that qualifies for the Premium service. Now we will work actively to find the right tenant for you as your agent and you have officially outsourced the project of finding a tenant.
