Might be hard convincing people you need bedrooms as part of your business?

There will be local stuff open to anyone where ever you are. Often in the local town parks, or if they have some old historic building or village hall (google bygdegården or hembygdsgården)

Stay away from sweden, seriously. You are going to buy an apartment wihout even moving in first?!. Don't be that crazy. You will make a swede richer and you will be in debt.

Having lived and worked in both, I have absolutely no intention of returning to the UK for anything other than a short holiday.

You can claim tax relief on travel to work costs over 10000kr/yr(value might differ slightly now ) . But not anything to do with personal travel, relocating, visiting your homeland etc

If you can sell it and make millions you haven't removed the incentive for drug dealers to keep dealing.

Gangs are about much more than just that. Prostitution, people trafficking, illegal workers, organised beggars.. different gangs different sectors etc.

You dumbass. There is a shortage of first hand contracts hence a shortage of stable living conditions, hence there is a need for 1st hand contracts, hence there is a need for housing.

As said contracts are a different debate. Folk still have a roof over their head.

I can't be done with this childish school play ground insulting. I'd hope you are adult enough to converse face to face without insults. Folk might listen to your reasoning more if you didn't insult online. I'm done with this thread.

Gjeebes. Don't play the child and insult. Make the argument. Prove the shortage of housing, the homeless etc.

But they do not have the full rights to live there... they have a second hand contract a sublease... for up to a year, maybe... until the other person, who has the right to stay there indefinitely, comes back.

In what way is that a proper living situation? And this is happening to folks who are employed and contribute to society.

If you were apathetic to this situation then you would not need to comment. But naw, you’re just an ignorant asshole.

Rental contracts are a different argument. That's not the same as a shortage.

You are a daft energy vampire. No one simply has the energy required to splain anything to you in enough detail for you to finally get the point through your thick cranium.

For you to claim I am attempting to indicate people live on the streets there, is case in point (i.e. you are not capable of joining the dots, even after this has been done for you).

I am simply in awe of your comprehension levels. I must assume you have trouble chewing gum and walking at the same time.

So you target the person because your own argument is massively flawed. How mature.

Gjeebes,

You make it sound like people are homeless. They aren't, there are still thousands of homes on the market, many of them vacant right now.

There are properties for sale and to rent. Sweden isn't without homes. Population has grown rapidly in the last 5 years through migration not natural growth, but everyone is still housed. Most cities have major building programmes already.

Rural life.. tough. If you come from elsewhere in Europe (as I did) to find work etc.. then you should be grateful you have job and a roof over your head. If life here is that bad then there is a solution, people are willing to risk drowning to get here, whilst fellow Europeans moan that sweden hasn't rolled out enough red carpet for them.

In this age of finite natural resources, reducing carbon foot prints etc.. why does every individual have to have their own home, it's just not efficient in any respect and is a bit of 1950/60s mentality of measuring success. Multi generation homes are the future, less carbon foot print, more family life, resolves many child or elderly care issues too.

Sounds like a cheap excuse to hide the fact that rentals in sweden are a trap.
Sweden is mostly empty, even the three "big" cities are not crowed compared to other places in Europe and yet sweden seems incompetent to provide basic needs covered.

Isn't sweden supposed to be the best country on earth with the best system and the best of everything?.

You would have a point if sweden had the population density of cities like London, New york, Paris, Madrid, Barcelona. But let's be honest sweden and most scandinavia are empty.

So why is sweden constantly trying to hide the rental mess with false excuses?.

Living in the middle of nowhere? What for when jobs are in the cities?. Shouldn't a top of the world country like sweden have also a top of the world housing system in which people don't have to live like nomads moving from second hand to another 3 times a year?.

Is it Sweden's job to employ and house everyone? No.

What percentage of eu migrant workers are homeless, sleeping on the streets?

A country can't just keep thousands of homes vacant just in case somebody from Spain decides to come here. If demand exists more will be built, which they are.

3 big cities... if immigrants could do some basic research they'd discover a vast range of employment opportunities in all corners and wouldn't need to follow like sheep to the major cities. Living rural ly you can often pay a third of what you might in a city for accommodation, have a train station on the doorstep and discover that some of those travel expenses are tax deductible. Win win.

Not sure what people expect. I bet there's tons of more rural housing around there too. You can't always live precisely where you wish.

How many folk have decided to move to sweden in the last 5 years? Folk have to be realistic in how long it takes to build new apartments in cities and adapt their expectations to what exists already. It's that or go back to which ever eu nation we came from if sweden is so rubbish.

As I've explained before, WE are the problem. Every year thousands of people just pitch up then complain... sweden isn't welcoming us with open arms, sweden is providing us with non Swedish speaking jobs, sweden isn't providing us with the housing I want where I want it etc..

What do people expect... life on a plate just because they woke up one day and decide to move here.

50000kr on a small petrol car, 3000 year for tax and insurance ish, it will average 6-7litres per 100km or better, tolls and parking you can work out yourself. Allow 2-10000 for servicing, parts, tyres depending on mileage.

The Answer is it depends... what are you driving, where do you live, where do you work and so on. Costs can vary massively.

Because if you are an eu citizen you can freely move for employment, no visa or permit required. If your family is also from the eu, they can just move with you. There is no requirement to ever visit embassies or consulates.

It's not permanent residency though. As when you have that it means the country has accepted you permanently regardless of nationality. So folk who come to sweden through the eu or say from the USA on a work visa can eventually apply for PR, after which their eu nationality or work visa is irrelevant. They could then take it to the next level and apply for citizenship, but you don't have to.

How long is temporary residency? Why is it temporary residency? Does that apply to all from EU when trying to live in another EU country?

It's only really a term. Temporary residence applies to anyone from the eu who is working in sweden and has registered their presence with MV.

However as a brit after Brexit if you haven't obtained permanent Swedish residency from MV or become a Swedish citizen then you lose the right to work in sweden as an eu migrant worker.

It's temporary in the sense it's conditional upon you being a member of another eu nation.

How long is temporary residency? Three months?

Forever, provided the country that you hail from remains a member of the EU.
https://www.migrationsverket.se/English/Pri...U-citizens.html

However because of Brexit once in sweden and wotking you really need to apply for permanrnt residency and change your driving licence before the Brexit date.

MV were offering a grace period of 12mths in which to upgrade residency but this may have changed. To swap driving licence you must do this whilst the UK is still in the eu.

Is this friend You?

If you land you can register with migration immediately. But you won't get permanent residency immediately without a job, substantial money or Swedish relatives. You'll only get temporary residency.

Brexit looks likely to be delayed, again, you have time.

Just go to SV as said above and chase it up.

You will get a proper personal number and certainly don't need a work permit.
