Important information for tenants applying for an apartment in this area! 

SGS Studentbostäder does not own these apartments but rents them from another property owner. SGS in turn, rents these to students. This means that you as a tenant will live in a building among non-students. 

In the rental relations between SGS and the property owner, SGS is not responsible for repairs or maintenance in the property. Instead, SGS forwards fault reports to the property owner. This may lead to longer processing time compared to if you lived in an apartment owned by SGS.

Many of the areas were built during the 1950s and 60s which means that the state of the apartments may vary.

It is of utmost importance that you check the apartment before you decide to accept the housing offer.
