About Orimlig Hyra

We fight for a fair housing market

Orimlig Hyra is a Swedish company that, through a digital application process, helps subtenants get their excess rent back within 48 hours.

The Swedish Tenancy Act requires rent to be fair, but for many subtenants, the reality looks different. That's why Orimlig Hyra was started in 2017. We've listened to thousands of second-hand tenants and created a unique solution to a common problem. We fight for a fair housing market where the rent is reasonable for everyone.

We know how difficult it can be to get a first-hand contract in Sweden. We also know the consequences when people are forced to pay unreasonable high rent on the second-hand market. Through our solution, we want to contribute to an improved housing market, with shorter housing queues and reasonable rents.

"During my time as a law student, I learned that charging unreasonably high rents is not allowed by law and that the excess rent can be reclaimed. Unfortunately, it is a difficult and tedious process, and few people are aware that it is possible.

Later I discovered that companies can actually buy people's legal claims, or in simpler terms, take over the right to pursue the case in court. I immediately realized that a similar concept would be perfect to also recover illegally high rents and make it easier for people who paid too much on the secondary market. That way, they can get their money straight away by letting a company take care of the difficult and time-consuming legal process.

This led me and some friends to found Orimlig Hyra (Which translates as "Unreasonable Rent" in Swedish), with a vision of an improved and fairer housing market in Sweden!"

- Alban Dautaj, co-founder of Orimlig Hyra
