What is a resident board/contact committee?
A resident board/contact committee is a non-profit association who is responsible for looking after the interests of the tenants and to act as a contact between the tenants and SGS Studentbostäder regarding housing issues.
All tenants are welcome as members.
How is a resident board/contact committee founded?
The board is formed at a tenants' house meeting. Some tenants usually take the initiative to call a meeting where all tenants are welcome to participate. SGS Studentbostäder can assist in summon to the first meeting and draw up the agenda.
Important: the notice should be distributed 14 days before the meeting, at the latest.

The following items are required at the house meeting
- Vote yes or no for a resident board/contact committee.
- Proposal for rules, see enclosed example.
Election of a committee with a minimum of five people, chairman, cashier, secretary and two members.
Small fee / "FR-krona"
The size of the fee is decided at the house meeting for a year at a time. The size differs and can vary between 10 and a maximum amount of 25 SEK per month. SGS Studentbostäder administer the fee on the rent bill and deposit the money in the resident board?s bank account.
Co-operation with SGS Studentbostäder
It is very important to establish a good co-operation between the resident board and SGS Studentbostäder. Maintenance, investments, property management, housing and management are matters which are dealt with at the quarterly meetings.
Should the resident board be dispersed SGS Studentbostäder must inevitably be informed.
