Limit of five apartments at the time

│ news 2019-10-25 │

From november 1, the number of published apartments that you can apply for is limited to five.  This is to make the rental process quicker for everyone.

At any given moment you can only have registered interest for five out of all the published apartments at boplats.se. When the apartments you have registered interest for are no longer published, you can apply for new ones. 

You can change your mind at any time. If you have registered interest for five apartments, and you find one you are more interested in, you can undo your application to be able to register interest for a new one. 

You can see how many apartments you have registered interest for at /minsida/ansokta and undo your application by clicking "remove".

Apartments you have registered interest for which are in the viewing status do not count to the limit of five. 

Why this limit? 

The limit is there in order to make the rental process quicker for everyone. Applicants have to make a considered choice for each application. We also ensure that you remove applications that are of lower interest. 

Many applicants are not actually interested in the apartment when they are offered the contract which means we have to call many people before we find one who is willing to sign the contract. This make the process slow for everyone involved.

What does this mean for me as an applicant? 

If all applicants are really interested in the apartments they apply for the process will be quicker, and you will get a better idea about what your actual chances are. As the limit only applies to published apartments, it is only a matter of a few days before you can apply for new ones. 

Why now? 

As all apartments are now mediated by queue-time there is no reason to apply to everything published on the website. Other municipal mediators of rental apartments (Kommunal bostadsförmedling) have similar limits.
