Move out

Here you will find important move-out information e.g. cleaning, inspection, and returning the keys. Thanks for staying with us and good luck with your new accommodation!


You terminate your housing on Your pages. The notice period can not be shortened, termination always takes place at the end of a month. This means that if you want to move out at the end of June, you must terminate your contract at the latest on May 31 if you have one month's notice. If you have two months' notice, you must terminate your contract at the latest on April 30.

Book a time for inspection

When you move out, AF Bostäder will inspect your apartment. Contact your caretaker in advance to book a time for inspection. As a precaution, we ask you to be available by phone but not participate in the inspection. 

Clean thoroughly and save money!

You must clean your housing before moving out. If the apartment has not been properly cleaned when you leave it, we have to charge you the cost of this. 

Recycle furniture, electronics and clothes

Do you need to get rid of furniture or electronic waste before you move? Leave it at your bulky waste station. You can leave clothes in the clothing container. 

Return all keys on time

All keys that belong to your housing should be returned to Service Centre, Tunavägen 39, Sparta. In order to minimize the risk of contagion, please leave your keys in the mailbox outside the Service Center. Put the keys in an envelope with your name and address. Envelopes are available on the site.

For the safety and security of our customers, we always change/flex the lock cylinder if at least one apartment key has been lost. The loss of cylinders, keys and tags is always charged to the contract holder. Replacement/flex of an apartment lock cylinder costs 1200 SEK and the loss of a tag costs 200 SEK. If the keys are returned too late, which is later than 12:00 on the official move out date, we will change/flex the apartment lock cylinder and charge the moving-out tenant for this. 

Early occupancy

Will you move out earlier and want to let the next tenant move in during your notice period? In order for earlier occupancy to be possible, the following criteria must be met.

  1. You must have filled in this form and send it by email to Service Centre.
  2. The inspection must be approved by your caretaker.
  3. You must have returned all the keys to Service Centre.

Service Centre notifies the new tenant if it is possible to move in earlier. Please note that it is always you as the contract holder who is responsible for the contract until it expires, which includes the rent payment, home insurance and electricity contract. You must agree with the next tenant on any compensation.

Make address change

In Sweden, everyone who moves must report the move and register at the new address. The correct address is necessary when you apply for housing allowance and for the mail to arrive. Make a free move application on the Swedish Tax Agency's website, and you will get the correct population registration address.

Terminate electricity contract

If you have your own electricity contract, terminate it well in advance before you move to avoid unnecessary costs.

Taking over furniture and other items

If you agree with the incoming tenant on taking over furniture or other items, we require that you submit a signed transfer agreement. The agreement must be handed to your Caretaker before the inspection. If we do not receive such an agreement and furniture/inventory items are left in the apartment at 12:00 on your moving-out date, then these items will be removed and we will charge you the costs involved.

Moving vehicle

Vehicle traffic is not normally allowed in the housing areas, for everyone’s benefit. During moving in and out, temporary active loading and unloading are permitted. Somebody must be at your vehicle every 10 minutes. Note that parking on fire access roads is always prohibited.


Most of our student housing have their own bicycle rack. Remember to remove your bicycle (and any lock) from the bicycle rack when moving. If you don’t want to keep the bicycle, you can either sell it or give it away, or leave it in the bulky waste station.


Do not turn the elements off. Let the heat be on for the next tenant.

Rent payment reference

Please remember to print out your contract and an account statement that shows how you have managed your rent payments. Most landlords specifically request this.
