You may have the legal right to reclaim tens of thousands of kronor from your rental company

It is becoming increasingly common for companies to rent apartments from property owners with the purpose of illegally leasing them to individuals at excessively high rents.

For many, it is unfamiliar that companies can sublet. However, it is more common than one might think. These companies are referred to in several different ways, such as rental companies, brokerage companies, intermediaries, or front rentals. The concept has also been called hotelification. This way of renting is often much more expensive and insecure in several ways for the subtenant. Since the rental company rents the apartment from a property owner and then sublets it to an individual, it is considered a sublease (see the graphic below).

How we helped over 100 subtenants in the same building to get primary contracts and money back for excessive rent

In a situation where it was discovered that all subtenants in a building were being terminated, Orimlig Hyra helped them instead to get primary contracts with reduced rents and money back for previous months of excessive rent.

In October 2023, it came to our attention that tenants at a specific address were paying excessively high subrents to a rental company. Around the same time, news broke that the rental company's contract had been terminated, which in turn resulted in all subtenants being terminated as well. We at Orimlig Hyra decided to go there and inform the subtenants about their rights and alternatives.

A ruling by the Supreme Court in 2022 determined that tenants (both individuals and companies) who rent apartments from rental companies have the same rights as primary tenants. Therefore, we knew that the tenants were in a situation where they not only had the right to disregard the termination, but also the right to continue living there with essentially the same rights as a primary tenant - the right to a lower rent and the right to receive money back for previous months of excessive rent.

Our solution

We offered the subtenants the opportunity to temporarily pay a reasonable rent (where we covered the difference) instead of continuing to pay the excessive rent demanded by a newly appointed rental company. This prompted a response from the property owner, who chose to enter into discussions with us. Through this dialogue, over 100 subtenants were offered primary contracts and reduced rents. Additionally, the tenants received tens of thousands of kronor in reimbursement for previous excessive rent!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is excess rent?

Excess rent means a rent that is too high – an unreasonable rent. The legal term for this is excess rent.

The rule of thumb is that an unreasonable rent is a rent that is higher than the main rent for the same apartment. You can calculate if you pay an excess rent by using our rent calculator on the homepage.

How do I apply for repayment of excess rent?

We receive your application through our web form and ensure that your information is correct and that a claim can be directed toward your landlord. In the web form, you sign an engagement letter and a transfer agreement through BankID.

Orimlig Hyra then pays out an amount to you and pursues the matter. In order to make the service as smooth as possible, the procedure takes place without you being involved. As soon as you have received your money you do not need to do anything more in the matter.

I still live in my sublet apartment. Can I get my future rent reduced?

Yes. The rent that is deemed reasonable can be affirmed in the Regional Rent and Tenancies Tribunal and shall then apply going forward.
