9 out of 10 second-hand rentals are illegally overpriced.

Due to the housing crisis in Sweden, tenants are forced to lease apartments for an illegally high fee. That's money that goes straight into landlord's pockets.

According to Swedish Law, leasing out apartments to excess rent is illegal.

If you have been paying rent that is higher than the actual fee for the apartment you have a legal right to reclaim your money.
You can still get your rent refunded even if you're not a Swedish citizen.

That is why we founded Orimlig Hyra. Since 2017, we have fought to help you get your money back. We have helped over 300 people get back money that is rightfully theirs.

In 2022, we reimbursed more than 4 000 000 SEK to second-hand tenants who had paid too much rent.

Very happy! Fast help, nice manager, serious and easy process. Got the money just a few days after they had approved my case. Would not have been able to go through this process without Orimlig Hyra. Thanks so much for your help!!

Quick and easy. Submitted the application on a Tuesday and received money on Thursday. Incredibly helpful and really quick to answer any questions I had. If you have reason to claim back excess rent, I highly recommend this service!


Listen to one of our users' experience with Orimlig Hyra

Say hi to one of our clients who got her money back after paying too much rent. It is illegal to pay a higher rent for a second-hand contract than what the landlord is paying himself. According to Swedish law, tenants can reclaim that money back.
