The Local _ Stockholm _ How to report and complain about a bad landlord

Posted by: Balticsee 3.Jun.2019, 11:49 PM

Hi I wonder what are the ways to report, complain about a bad landlord and warn others (besides the police)? The landlord harasses, abuses and even blackmail tenants. The landlord rents in a public housing apartment and then sublet.

Report him to the owners.

Why it matters to the owner? How to find out the owner information?

The "landlord" is usually the property owner...Is this person the Building Manager/Superintendent???

Cool. What is this site about?
If the landlord steals items from tenant and won't return, will the police do something about it regardless of the value of the items?

Ring the police and contact the owners. Unfortunately you will probably end up homeless by doing this but he will also lose the property

Yes, contact the owners/organization that owns the building.

Depending on what is stolen... call the police.

How can they be subletting their rented apartment while still in the area? I assume they are in area if stealing from you, op, and harassing you. There are strict rules for legally subletting a first hand contract in Sweden.

I agree with fox that you will most likely lose your place since the place should be taken away from the one subletting to you... maybe if you talk to owners of building and explain the situation you could potentially take over the first hand rental agreement... you probably pay more than market price for sublet so see if you can sweeten the deal by continuing to pay what you do now.

Good luck. Come back and tell what happens...

Hi what can the owner do about it, only that the landloard can't sublet his first hand contract? What else?

I already moved out because the due date has come.
How to find out the owner and contact info?

It does smile.gif I just didn't get a chance to look at it in details so simply wonder in a brief what it is about.

Hi there! Do you have any update about your case? I recently having a similar situation with yours and viewed this.

Posted by: icyk 15.Oct.2020, 09:22 PM

I had similar issue.
What I can tell you is that police will always side with the local if you are alone and a foreigner. Most of the case they will just try to separate you from the renter. And make sure you that you leave or doesn't stay near the renter.

In my case they just asked me to leave the appartment even though I was renting it because the renter changed the lock.
Even though I could provide the rental lease.

The only thing you can do is inform the true owner of the appartment, and go public or ask swedish friend to help you talk to the police.

For my case, it was an appartment in odengatan.

See my precedent post.

You should also go to kronofogden; Not sue directly as I did. My case is still ongoing but this old woman kept going to her doctor for medical leaves and avoid the court.
