House rules


  • You must put your waste in garbage bags. Garbage bags may not be left in the hallway, they must immediately be put directly in the waste bins outside.
  • Do not place leftover food and other waste in the outdoor areas - it will attract birds, rats and other pests. Therefore, do not feed wild birds or animals.
  • You must order collection of large waste yourself at AffaldVarme - e.g. cardboard boxes, furniture and the like.
  • The rules also apply to bottle pant.
  • Residents are responsible for emptying the recycling bins. 


When leaving a terrace, clean up after yourself and your potential guests. In other words, everything that you took out on the roof terrace (also applies to empty packaging), you take in again when you leave the roof terrace. In addition, all cigarette butts must be in ashtrays that must be emptied regularly. 

Street doors

Street doors must always be kept closed and locked to prevent unauthorized persons from entering the property and committing vandalism and / or theft. 

Common areas 

No objects may be placed in the corridors outside the apartment. First, it is illegal according to the fire authorities, who demand that stairs and corridors be kept free for passage. Secondly, it generally impairs accessibility in the corridors, and thirdly, the objects are inconvenient for cleaning.

  • Fire doors must be closed.
  • You may only park cars and motorcycles in the department's parking spots.
  • Barbecues in outdoor common areas must be done so far from the apartments that you do not disturb others.
  • Clean up after yourself in common kitchens, common rooms and outdoor areas.
  • All common things must be treated with respect and so that they do not break quickly. This includes, among other things, not standing on the tables, sitting on a stack of chairs or destroying the wood on the terrace.
  • Do not hang dartboards in common areas, as these will damage the walls.
  • If you want to add larger objects to common areas (incl. terraces), this must be done in accordance with the majority on the floor.

The A scheme in brief
Your estate follows the A scheme for maintenance. Summary of the A scheme for maintenance:
In the case of the A scheme, you must personally pay for general interior maintenance during your period of occupancy. You must also pay for ‘normal redecoration’ when you move, i.e. painting and thorough cleaning of the apartment. You can do this personally or you can pay for this to be done by someone else.
The A scheme has the following advantage: the estate gradually takes over the expense for normal redecoration, normally at 1 % per month. In other words, if you live in the same apartment for 100 months, the estate will pay the full cost of normal redecoration. This means that you can move out at no personal cost – unless there is a breach of contract.

The maintenance rules replace or supplement the provisions on maintenance and renovation that are stated in the lease agreement. However, the text in the maintenance rules always takes priority over the lease agreement.

Tenants Complaint Board
Disagreement on whether the landlord or tenant has fulfilled their obligation to maintain and renovate the apartment can be brought before the tenants complaint board by either one of the parties.


The condition of the apartment
In the case of a new occupancy of an apartment, the apartment in question must be in a good and safe condition. Walls and ceilings must be redecorated. Other structural parts may not be expected to be redecorated.

New occupancy (moving in) inspection
At the beginning of a new occupancy, the landlord carries out an inspection of the apartment. The inspection shall determine whether the condition of the apartment complies with the applicable standards of the estate and for this type of apartment. The tenant shall be summoned to the inspection.

New occupancy (moving in) inspection report
In the case of an inspection of the apartment for a new occupancy, the landlord prepares a moving-in report, to which the tenant can add comments. The tenant receives a copy of the new occupancy (moving in) report during the inspection or at the latest by 14 days after the inspection if the tenant is not present at the inspection or if the tenant will not sign for the receipt of the report.

Defects, damage or deficiencies must be reported within two weeks
In the case of a new occupancy, if the tenant ascertains defects, damage or deficiencies, the tenant must report these in writing to the landlord by two weeks at the latest from the start of the new occupancy.
The landlord may assess that one or more of the identified defects, damage or deficiencies are insignificant and therefore shall not be remedied. The tenant is not liable for such defects, damage or deficiencies when the tenant moves out.


The tenant's obligation to maintain the apartment
The tenant is responsible for interior maintenance, including painting, papering and floor treatment. The tenant pays all costs related to interior maintenance.
The tenant must maintain the interior as regularly as necessary to ensure that the apartment does not deteriorate beyond ordinary wear and age.

The landlord's maintenance obligation
The landlord must maintain the property and rented property responsibly.
The landlord carries out maintenance and carries out any necessary replacement of windows, taps, gas taps, circuit breakers, bathroom basins/cisterns, washbasins, bathtubs, fridges, cookers, washing machines and similar appliances that are installed by the landlord or by a tenant as part of a tenants' right of own improvement works.

The landlord is responsible for the maintenance and necessary renewal of locks and keys in outer doors and shower/bathroom doors. The landlord pays all costs related to this.
The landlord can carry out interior maintenance in the apartments in addition to that stated in this section.

Breach of contract
The tenant is liable for damage that results from incorrect use, incorrect maintenance or indefensible conduct by the tenant, members of the household or other persons to whom the tenant has given access to the apartment.

Reporting of damage
Should damage occur to the apartment, the tenant must immediately inform the landlord. If the landlord is not informed, the tenant is liable for additional costs that may arise from the failure to report the damage.


Normal redecoration
When moving out, normal redecoration shall be carried out, which covers necessary:
• Whitewashing or painting of ceilings and walls
• Painting or papering of walls
• Cleaning, including cleaning up after tradesmen
Any cleaning of old wallpaper before new papering of walls shall be paid for by the landlord unless it was not put up professionally responsibly or the tenant has used a wall coating that is different from the one prescribed below
The tenant pays for the costs of normal redecoration but the landlord gradually takes over this cost at 1% per month – calculated from the start of the occupancy until its termination. After 100 months, the landlord will have completely taken over the cost of normal redecoration.

Breach of agreement
The tenant pays all costs relating to redecoration and renovation that are a consequence of a breach of the leasing agreement.
Breach of agreement – the tenant is liable when the apartment or parts of the apartment are degraded or damaged as a result of incorrect use, incorrect maintenance or indefensible conduct by the tenant, members of the household or other persons to whom the tenant has given access to the apartment.

Extraordinary cleaning
If there is a need for extraordinary cleaning of white goods, fixtures and fittings, sanitary appliances etc., this is also considered a breach of the agreement.

Exemption from normal redecoration
Building surfaces that appear as executed professionally and newly renovated surfaces during the moving-out inspection, can be omitted from normal redecoration.

The redecoration period
In consideration of redecoration, the tenant must leave the apartment in a tidy condition 14 days before the expiry of the lease agreement.
The vacating tenant must also follow the housing organisation’s detailed instructions relating to this and the vacating tenant must defray the full apartment expenses etc. during this period.

Moving-out inspection
The landlord shall carry out an inspection of the apartment at the latest by two weeks after notification that the tenant has moved out. The tenant shall be notified in writing with one week’s notice to attend an inspection of the apartment.

Moving-out inspection report
The landlord will prepare a moving-out inspection report based on the moving out inspection. The moving-out inspection report will state which redecoration work must be carried out as normal redecoration, any redecoration and renovation work that is considered a breach of contract and what the tenant must pay for.
The tenant receives a copy of the moving-out inspection report during the moving-out inspection or by the latest 14 days after the moving-out inspection if the tenant is not present at the moving-out inspection or if the tenant will not sign for the receipt of the report.

Information about redecorating costs
By 14 days at the latest after the date of the inspection, the tenant shall receive in writing a notification stating the estimated cost of redecoration and the tenant’s share of this cost, detailing amounts for normal redecoration and for any redecoration and renovation that is a consequence of a breach of the leasing agreement.

Final report
The landlord sends the final report of the redecoration expenses to the tenant as soon as possible, stating which redecoration work has been carried out, the cost of this work and how the tenant’s share of this cost has been calculated. The redecoration and renovation work as a consequence of a breach of the agreement will also be specified.
In regard to the final report, the tenant’s share of any overruns cannot be greater than 10% in relation to the first estimated redecoration expense.

Execution of the work
Redecoration work shall be carried out on request by the landlord.

Redecoration in the case of an apartment swap
Apartment swaps are subject to the same provisions that apply when a tenant moves out.


Living rooms, rooms and hallways
On moving in, walls in living rooms, rooms and hallways have been covered in felt and painted white. Walls can be maintained using good quality emulsion paint. Some interior walls are concrete. They must not be painted. Pictures, TVs or similar items must be mounted on wall mountable hanging rails. Ceilings may be painted using good quality emulsion paint (Gloss 5).
The felt walls may be painted using good quality emulsion paint (Gloss 20). Ceilings may be painted using good quality emulsion paint (Gloss 5).

Whitewashed walls and walls with existing fibreglass may be painted using good quality emulsion paint (Glass 25).
Ceilings may be painted using good quality emulsion paint (Gloss 5).
NB: If paint has been chosen that is not of the correct quality, this may lead to additional costs in connection when moving out.

Kitchen units must be kept clean.

Wooden floors must be wiped dry using a well-wrung cloth. Only use water with soap flakes. The floor is varnished using a matt, water-based varnish. You must first contact the administrator if you wish to varnish the floor.

The standard of the apartment with a new occupancy
At the start of a new occupancy, the ceilings and walls must appear as newly decorated. Woodwork, fixtures and fittings, technical installations and floors will only be renovated if the landlord has found there is a need for this.
Re-letting is re-using. The tenant who is moving in must therefore accept that the apartment, including woodwork, fixtures and fittings, technical installations and floors, show signs of wear that may be considered reasonable in relation to the age of the apartment. No special requirements may be set for colour choice. The tenant who is moving in must accept that woodwork and fixtures and fittings may be in colours that do not suit their personal preferences.
