The Swedish Housing Service allocates vacant rental flats in the City of Stockholm and large areas of the Stockholm region. The Housing Service primarily allocates principal contracts and occasionally short-term contracts. The Housing Service does not allocate sublets.
Flats in th housing queue
Flats in the housing queue are allocated in order of the applicant’s queuing time. If the applicant obtains an flat through the Housing Service, they expend their queuing time in the housing queue. The applicant automatically remains in the queue, but with a new queuing time as long as the queuing fee is paid. If the applicant obtains an flat, the Housing Service charges an allocation fee of SEK 1,000.
Flats through Quick Housing
Flats allocated through Quick Housing are flats that for various reasons require quick or special management to be rented on time. The first applicant to register interest for an flat through Quick Housing and who fulfils any criteria imposed for the flat will be listed as a prospective tenant. Through this service, queuing time bears no significance and when an applicant accepts a Quick Housing flat they retain their queuing time in the housing queue. If the applicant obtains an flat, Quick Housing charges an allocation fee of SEK 1,000.
Flats in the internal exchange queue
From January 20, 2010, the municipal housing companies in Stockholm formed a joint internal exchange queue for flats. If you are a tenant of Svenska Bostäder, Stadsholmen, Familjebostäder, Stockholmshem or Micasa you can search for available flats of all companies in this queue.
Flats in sheltered living
If you are registered for the housing queue you will automatically begin gathering time in the queue for sheltered living on the day you turn 70. You can begin to register interest for flats in sheltered living when you turn 75. Usually, you must be registered in the City (folkbokförd) to seek sheltered living.
Flats through other queues
Through agreements, the Housing Service has agreed to assume the external queues of several property owners. These property owners submit all flats that are not intended for internal swaps to the Housing Service. Applicants who were in the property owner’s queue have positions in the housing queue and in the queue for the specific property owner’s flats. New applicants cannot apply for the latter.
If the applicant is on the list “Vacant flats – housing queue” with the symbol this means that the flat is classified as a project flat (this most often applies to newly produced flats). When an applicant registers interest in a project flat, they are privy to a selection of a number of flats. If the applicant receives a showing notification, they will have the opportunity to rank the flats in the project in order of priority according to interest.
Newly produced flats
If the applicant is on the list “Vacant flats – housing queue” with the symbol this means that the flat is newly produced. For some newly produced flats, the applicant can influence the choice of features, such as wallpaper and cabinet doors.
If the applicant is on the list “Vacant flats – housing queue” with the symbol this means that the flat has a short-term contract. A short-term contract means that the flat is available for a limited period and that the holder of the contract is not entitled to swap said contract. Short-term contracts can span anywhere from a few months to a year. If the applicant obtains a short-term contract, their queuing time remains intact and the allocation fee is SEK 500.
Senior citizen flats
These flats in the list “Vacant flats – housing queue” are most often labelled . In individual cases, senior citizen flats may be advertised with another age limit. Applicants must fulfil this age criteria to register interest.
Senior citizen flats for those aged 65 years or older
These buildings only house people who are 65 years or older. The rental contracts are limited and do not entitle the holder to swap or sublet the flat. These flats are often found in former service blocks. If the applicant obtains a senior citizen flat for those aged 65 years or older, they retain their queuing time in the housing queue and the Housing Service charges an allocation fee of SEK 500.
Physical disability flats
There are a number of flats in the City of Stockholm that are adapted for people with physical disabilities. These flats include features such as wheelchair accessible kitchens and toilets and have no door sills. In the case of flats adapted for people with physical disabilities, the landlord can require that the flat shall primarily be offered to applicants who have the disabilities for which the flat is adapted.
Flats in collective buildings
In a collective building, several households may live together yet retain separate entrances and individual flats. The tenants offer shared rooms with space for socialising and meetings. The tenants often have a significant influence on the design of the building. Commune building associations may occasionally have the ability to approve applicants as tenants and can also perform and receive remuneration for landscaping work and some aspects of property maintenance.

Flats for young people
Youth flats are earmarked for applicants who are 18 years old but have not yet turned 26. These flats are allocated by age in accordance with a rolling schedule (youth apartments owned by private property owners are usually allocated based on the age requirement and queuing). These flats are only allocated in the City of Stockholm and are divided among three areas; the suburbs, inner suburbs and city centre.
The Housing Service allocates student flats on behalf of Svenska Bostäder, Vasakronan, Micasa and several small property owners around Stockholm. Student flats are also allocated through Stiftelsen Stockholms Studentbostäder (Stockholm’s student housing foundation)
