Information about rent and payments.

Rent and payments

You pay your rent monthly and in advance. If you have not received a rent slip, you are still obliged to pay the rent on time. 

The rent must be received by SGS no later than the last weekday of the month. Your payment will be registered with us on the date your bank deposits the money into our account. If you are unsure how many days before you need to make the payment for it to arrive on time to us? Talk to your bank. 

You will receive your invoice on My Pages around the middle of each month. The invoice contains all the information you need to pay the rent.

To be sure that the payment is correct, always use the payment details you received from us.

If you want to pay for several months at a time, you can add up the rents yourself and pay it all at once. It's a good idea to pay a little extra to cover any bank fees and exchange rate. Any surplus will be added to next month's rent. If a minor debt should accur when you pay your rent due to exchange rate differences you do not need to make an extra payment immediately. Instead, the debt is automatically moved to the next month's rent payment.

Annual rental negotiation - what does it mean?

Rental negotiations are something that all property owners are engaged in every year. SGS Studentbostäder negotiates rent levels with Hyresgästföreningen Region Västra Sverige (HGF). HGF is representant for  represents you as a tenant. As soon as the negotiations have begun, usually in November each year, we inform about it on the website. When the negotiations are completed, this may mean that we raise the rents or that there will be no rent increase at all. We will notify the negotiation result on the website and on your payment slip.

NOTE! If you live in one of our rented properties, it is the property owner who negotiates the rent. Therefore, there may be a difference in the negotiation result / level of any increase.
