Parents with first hand apartment contracts will no longer be able to transfer the contract to their children, as of May 15. The children of apartment tenants have previously been able to jump the line for apartments in Poseidon, Bostadsbolaget and Familjebostäder.
The decision was made on request from the politicians in the municipality’s real estate group Framtiden AB.
“The board [of Framtiden AB] wanted better transparency and clarity,” says Inger-Lena Bennman, information manager at Bostadsbolaget, to Göteborgs-Posten.
The decision was made last autumn and according to Inger-Lena Bennman there have been few negative comments on the changes among Bostadsbolagets tenants.
