The Company Vision
The HistoryAt the outbreak of WW2 in 1939, there was an acute shortage of housing in Sweden, spawning ideas for publicly-owned housing companies.
On 28 December 1948, the company changed its name to AB Stångåstaden and a period of extensive construction in Linköping followed. Since its establihsment Stångåstaden has been tasked with ensuring that Linköping has affordable housing to satisfy the growing population.
Stångåstaden has established a Customer Panel comprising of 10 young tenants in the age group 18-25 years, all of which are interested in having some influence on our business.
The Customer Panel is very important to Stångåstaden as the members provide an insight into how young people view housing, development of the housing areas as well as contributing with valuable proposals relating to decisions. In return the participants are given the unique opportunity to network and discuss strategic future issues.
On 20 January a second meeting was held and matters such as Rental policy and safety and security in the housing areas were discussed.
At the first meeting the participants were asked to submit topics for subsequent meetings and rental policy and security were two of these.
The waiting time in the queue starts the day you sign up. Each subsequent day is one additional point. If you are a Stångåstaden tenant your collection of points start from the occupancy date of your current home.
In order to join our waiting list, you must be 17 years old. The queue points are personal and therefore you cannot join on someone else's behalf. The queue points cannot be added together, they are always personal.
If you leave Stångåstaden or move from one of our flats to another, your queue points are void and your place in the queue is cancelled the day you terminate the contract.
If you move to Stångåstaden your queue points are void and your place in the queue is cancelled the day the contract is registered. This applies to all signatories of the contract.
Customers who abuse the system by not getting in touch or who are absent from appointments run the risk of being barred for a period of time.
When presenting flats on our website, we sometimes indicate a preferred target group which suits the entrance/building/area. These flats are offered to the person with the most queue points within that target group. The target groups are Youths; Family with children; Adults without children; Seniors 55+; 70+ and Students.
Priority treatment ca be given in exceptional cases. Such priority claim must be verified.
Prior to giving an offer for a flat, a credit check will be conducted if the financial situation of the applicant is not known.
Stångåstaden will require references, primarily from a previous landlord or/and employer.
