How you rent a long-term home
Create a profile
Start by creating a profile if you haven't already. In your profile you will have the opportunity to write a bio, tell about your employment, and what previous housing references you have. Fill out your profile information fully, in order to maximize your chances with landlords. When you are satisfied with your profile you can contact the landlord by clicking "Contact" in the listing.
Contact the homeowner
We've introduced a new system at Blocket Bostad for an easier and safer process to find a new accommodation.
This means that the first contact always happens via a contact request on Blocket Bostad. It is not binding and super simple. The landlord receives a notification regarding your message. They then get the opportunity to either accept or deny it. If accepted, a chat is started. You can find it under messages. All your contact requests will be gathered in the same place.
When you and the landlord feel ready to sign a rental agreement you can easily do so via Blocket Bostad. The service is designed to ensure fraudulent-free subletting. In addition, we hope to bring security and knowledge to the sublease for both you and the landlord. You will be assisted throughout the entire rental period with everything from creating a lease to ensuring that your rights as a tenant are considered, Qasa will handle all payments and give you personal support during the rental if needed.
Sign the rental agreement
Once you have agreed to sublet the home, the landlord will generate a lease tailored to your rental. You sign it online using BankID, quick and easy. If you don't have Swedish BankID, you will be able to sign by submitting a picture of your passport. Please note that Blocket Bostad in collaboration with Qasa never requires money upon the signing process. When you sign your rental agreement, you only pay the monthly cost stated in the listing.
When you sign your rental agreement, a credit check (UC “micro check”) will be done. If that credit check turns out approved, you will rent deposit-free.
Payments through us
When renting through us, all your rental payments go through us for your safety.
Please be aware to never pay anything directly to a landlord. Never pay any fee/deposit, or rent through a payment service such as Trustly, Skrill, or other payment services. We only use invoices sent via email and payment is made to our "bankgiro". Do not disclose any bank or card details.
How you rent a vacation home
If you instead wish to rent a vacation home, you find all available vacation homes under the tab Vacation. Send the landlord a booking request with your wanted dates. Once you both have accepted the booking, we will invoice you for the stay.
You pay the invoice before the stay, and no deposit is required.
