Moving out

Moving out

The contract runs for a predetermined period and you are expected to move out when the lease expires. No notice of termination is needed.

We terminate the contract on the expiry day. You should clean the apartment and move out. All the keys must be returned to Kundcenter/Customer center for your housing area at departure.

If you want to terminate the contract earlier, see the rules below.

Empty your residence and storage of all personal belongings. Do not leave any food in the room or in the cupboard in the shared kitchen. The SGS staff does not store any items left behind.

The keys to the flat and the communal spaces (kitchen, laundry) should be returned to Kundcenter/Customer center by 12 o’clock at the latest the day your contract expires. Return the keys personally if possible. 

If the office is closed, put the keys in an envelope marked with your name and address and drop them in the slot/mailbox for keys outside your Kundcenter.

It is important to lock the door and shut the window(s) before leaving the flat to prevent damage occurring after departure or outsiders to enter the flat.
