What requirements do applicants have to meet?

To rent an apartment from Mimer, you must fulfil the following basic requirements:

  • You must be 18 years of age or older.
  • You must have a Swedish personal identity number.
  • You may not owe money to Mimer or any other landlord.
  • You may not have more than 1 record of non-payment within the past year.
  • If you have a lease, you must need the apartment, live there, and be nationally registered at that address.
  • You may only have one primary lease with Mimer.
  • As a tenant, you must obtain tenants insurance for the home.
  • You may not have more people living in the apartment than is reasonable in relation to the apartment’s size.

We do not have any requirements related to income, but we do perform a credit check on all applicants who are offered a viewing of the apartment in order to check for any debt and any records of non-payment.

Create an application

You can register for placement in Mimer’s queue beginning from the year of your 16th birthday. From the date that you register, you will begin to collect queue points (köpoäng).

If both you and your partner want to be listed on the apartment lease, you must submit a joint application. To be approved as a co-applicant, you must live under marriage-like conditions.

In order to keep your queue points, you must update your expression of interest at least once (1 time) a year. Otherwise, you will lose your queue points and your application will be deleted. It is your responsibility to keep track of your application and when it needs to be updated.

What are queue points?

Once you have registered, you earn 1 point per day. In addition to these points, you receive 5 extra points per month if you are a tenant of Mimer. The more points you have, the greater your chance of getting an apartment.

Once you agree to sign a lease, your application will be deleted and your queue points are reset to zero (the same applies in the case of a housing swap). If you wish to remain in the queue, you must submit a new application.

Your queue points are personal and cannot be transferred or combined with anyone else’s queue points. However, there are two exceptions to this rule that allow for the transfer of queue points. In both cases, you must present a certificate. Queue points can be transferred to a cohabitant who lived under marriage-like conditions with the other party in the following circumstances:

  1. in case of death.
  2. in case of a permanent move to a nursing home.

You can view your current queue point balance by logging in to Mina sidor (My pages), the information is in Swedish.

How do I express interest in available apartments?

Visit Sök ledigt (Search vacancies), the information is in Swedish, or download our Sök ledigt (Search vacancies) app (in Swedish). All of Mimer’s available apartments are presented there. A lease is offered to the applicant with the highest queue point balance, provided that they meet our basic requirements.

Number of people allowed to live in the apartment

The number of people living in the apartment must be reasonable in relation to the size of the apartment in order to prevent unhealthy living conditions. It is important that you think about this when you are applying for one of our apartments.

  • 1-bedroom apartment with kitchenette/kitchen: 4 people
  • 2-bedroom apartment with kitchen: 6 people
  • 3-bedroom apartment with kitchen: 8 people

All of our newly-constructed buildings are “smoke-free buildings” to help tenants who have physical issues with smoke. A smoke-free building means that there is no smoking inside the apartment, on the balcony/patio, at the entrance, or in the common areas of the property.

Quick occupancy is a designation given to apartments with no more than 1 month left before the tenant can move in. When an apartment is available for renting, it is published together with other available apartments for 48 hours. You can express your interest during this time window.

Quick occupancy apartments are rented out based on the queue point system, just like other apartments.

To be eligible to rent a quick occupancy apartment, you must:

  • Meet our basic requirements for apartment rental.
  • Be prepared to accept the apartment as soon as it is available to rent.

The contract runs on a month-to-month basis, with one month’s notice required by you as the tenant and by Mimer as the landlord.
