E-invoice – for you with internet banking

Pay the rent easily using e-invoice. All you need to do is log in to your internet bank and choose to have e-invoice from ÅFA. Then you will only need to log in to your internet bank and accept the invoice and your payment will be processed automatically.

If you live in a multi-family house, you must accept sounds and other disorders associated with a normal life, but you will never be able to sustain ongoing and serious interference.

Hopefully, it feels safe to live in a multi-family house because you have people around you.

But it is important to keep in mind that people have different reference frameworks. Some are bothered by things that others do not care about.

Some are evening people, while others get up early. To work together and enjoy it, it is necessary to take into account others, both within their own walls and in common areas.

We want you to enjoy yourself and for everyone to be together, it’s important not to be disturbed by residents.

All tenants are required to show consideration, this applies in the apartment, common areas such as staircase, elevator and laundry room.

ÅFA seriously looks at disturbances, the one who disturbs and does not correct for awards, may be dismissed from the apartment. We have a call number which can be called after 16:00, if you are disturbed evenings and nights as well as public holidays, call immediately at tel. 070-328 75 14 so we can go out and document the situation.

 

Day time

If you get disturbed during the daytime – contact ÅFA on phone 0690-250 381.

Examples of interference may be:

  • Someone plays music at very high volume.
  • Sound parties.
  • A dog barks high and long.
  • Some drills, nails or banks late in the evening after 22:00.
  • Someone uses the washing machine at night.

 

Of course, you and your family should be able to move you normally in the apartment without being afraid of being regarded as disturbing. Night time should be taken into account so that the neighbors are not disturbed.

There is a lot you can do to prevent problems from occurring. You can also fix some of the most common errors. Here are some tips.

 

Bathroom

If there is a stop in the washbasin, you should check the silencer and the water trap yourself before misinterpreting.

  • If there is a stop in the floor well, you should clean the hair and the like on and under the grille in the floor well before misrepresenting it. The floor drain in the bathroom can often be opened at the bottom or lift up, so you can access hairbags and the like. Everything will be charged if you are not cleaned / cleaned.
  • If the water runs out badly, use a cleaner and pump in the bottom valve on the drain. You can also use a plunger as an aid to clean the bottom valve on the wash basin.
  • To avoid destroying the drainage pipes and our environment, do not use caustic soda in the drain.
  • To avoid stopping the drains, do not flush down sanitary items in the toilet.

 

Kitchen

  • In order for the fan to work as well as possible, clean the fan filter at least once a month. For example, you can put it in a long boiler (for the oven) with hot water and dish soap overnight. Then flush out properly. If you need a new filter, call us for a new one.
  • To avoid stops, do not pour the coffee jar and cooking oil into the slush.

 

Electric

  • If the power in the apartment is not working, check the fuses in the apartment before you report a malfunction.
  • If your lights are not lit, make sure that the connector for the roof lighting is properly engaged. If there are three holes, it may be wrong. You should also check that the bulbs and fluorescent lamps work. Always replace both fluorescent lamps and glare lighter before misinterpreting. Lamps / fluorescent lamps are paid by the tenant.
  • To prevent hazardous substances from getting into the trash, take the old fluorescent lamp and the glare pointer to a recycling center or environmental station. Do not throw the fluorescent lamps in the trash.

 

Lock

  • If the Spaniards (window-proof) or the door lock to the balcony door are sluggish, you can lubricate yourself with lubricants such as 5:56, sycamore oil or the like.

 

If you have any other concerns, please feel free to contact us or make a error report.

Checklist for cleaning

ÅFA like other real estate companies aims to reduce their energy consumption to a reasonable and environmentally friendly level. ÅFA has set its standard to have an indoor temperature of 20-21 ° C on ordinary accommodation.

 

Thermostat valve effect

On your radiators there is a thermostat valve that regulates the hot water flow to your radiators. The thermostat valve shaves the flow when it gets too hot in the room ie 21 ° C. This moment may make the radiator feel cold and it indicates that the room has enough temperature.

 

Additional radiator

When using additional radiator, the temperature will probably exceed the temperature at which the radiator valve’s thermostat is set, which will mean that your apartment will only increase slightly in temperature. The radiators will then get cold.

 

At temperature change

When the temperature goes from very cold to a mild climate, the feeling of some cold can be felt in the apartments.

 

Do not block the radiator

One should avoid blocking its radiator to maximize efficiency. If you block the radiator with te.x. a sofa, the warm air can not reach the rest of the room. This can significantly reduce your indoor temperature.

If the temperature in your apartment is not within the stated values, please contact ÅFA.

 

Climate and operating criteria

It is important that you have home insurance.

 

You must feel safe in your on home. However, there is a lot of things that can happen that’s not your fault. Burglary, fire, water damage, accident event – the list can be made long. Home insurance applies to you and your family. It may include, movable property, cash and valuables.

Without a Home Insurance, you may incur high compensation costs if you are causing a damage to another’s property.

What happens when you are late with the rent?

 

Paying the rent is one of the most important things you do every month.

Nevertheless, many people do not pay on time. We simply want to explain what happens if you do not pay the rent on time and tell you how expensive it will be for you in the end.

Your monthly rent must be paid in advance. It will be paid on the last weekday of the month for the following month. For example, April’s monthly rent will be paid in the last weekday in March.

If you do not pay the rent on time, you will receive a certificate from PROFINA. It costs you 180 kronor (plus late payment from expiry date) in the collection fee. If you do not pay despite the claim letter, the case goes on to Kronofogden, costing from SEK 380 (plus interest).

If we still have not been paid after the Kronofogden has been involved, you risk being evicted. This will also incur additional costs for you, SEK 600 (plus interest on late payment).

If you know you can not pay the rent on time, call us at 0690-250 382 and we will try to solve the problem together.

Everyone needs to wash and the shared laundry rooms are used diligently. If everyone helps keep the laundry clean and tidy, work will be more enjoyable.

 

Here are some simple and clear rules for the laundry to work well:

  • Read the instructions for the various machines.
  • Keep wash times

Next tenant should not have to wait.

  • Clean up after you

The laundry must be cleaned after each wash. Even though it looks clean: sweep and dry the floors.

  • Clean the machines

Clean the laundry and rinse aid compartment, drain the lint filter in the dryer, wipe the drying cabinet and wipe the washer and dryer.

  • Consider the environment

Neither people, washing machines nor the environment are doing too much laundry. Do not use a dose greater than the detergent manufacturer recommends.

Fill the machine every time you wash. Use ecolabelled detergents.
