Did you know that you can get money back from your rental company?

It's becoming increasingly common for companies to rent apartments from property owners with the purpose of subleasing them at unlawfully high rents to individuals. Many at your address rent an apartment from such a company and have therefore requested to receive money back for the portion of the rent that exceeds a reasonable level (the so-called excess rent).

It can be difficult for you as a tenant to know if you are renting from such a rental company and if you are paying too much in rent. Therefore, we at Orimlig Hyra are more than happy to assist you. Fill in the form below to calculate how much money you are entitled to get back!

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.
