Paying your rent
You pay your rent monthly and in advance. Payment is due on the last weekday of the month. If you have not received a rent slip, you are still obliged to pay the rent on time.
The payment date that you specify at your registration of the payment or acceptance of the e-invoice will be your payment date of the rent.
Always try to use the payment information that you received from us. You get a new and unique OCR number each month.
Payment of rent from a Swedish bank account should be directed to our bank
602-9797. Your OCR number, amount and due date shall be indicated.
You will get your rent slip (web slip) each month on My pages/The rent. It has all the information you need for payment. If for some reason you have not received your rent slip and if you are not able to contact us, please use your last OCR number for payment.
If you wish to pay in advance, you can either deposit a larger amount of the rents you wish to pay in one payment, or contact us for rent slips. Some debit items (e g individual consumption of electricity and hot water) we can not announce in advance, but then you can pay an amount equal to your normal consumption, and we will make an adjustment on your next slip.
If you sublet your apartment you are still obliged to ensure that the rent is paid on time.
Payment by electronic invoice
You can get your rent on an e-invoice sent directly to your internet banking. All payment details are then already completed and you approve the e-invoice before payment. The service is free. Many banks also offer automatic payment on the due date and a message by SMS or email when a new e-invoice is sent to your Internet bank.
If you are not already registered for e-invoicing with your bank, you must arrange it. You should then register that you want to use SGS Studentbostäder as the recipient of your e-invoices. To pay the rent with an e-invoice it is required that you are a customer (the person who signed the contract) with us. You should also have a Swedish personal identity that you have notified us.
On application for e-invoice, please quote your item number. The item number can be found on your rental slip or contract.
If the due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday or holiday, you must change the due date so that the rent will be paid by the last day of the month at the latest.
