In instances of continous complaints, the board will consider what sanctions should be put forth. Be aware that the board can demand the selling of apartments whose residents keep breaking our house rules, in spite of written warnings. 


Pets are allowed in borettslaget, as long as they are kept in order. Please remember that you must keep your dog on a leash in the backyard, and please pick up its droppings.

Storage units

All apartments and dorms have their own storage units in the basement. These are clearly marked with your apartment number. Remember that it is the resident's own contents insurance that covers the contents of these units in case of theft or damage. Please check that the main doors close and lock behind you when leaving the storage unit areas.
Borettslaget has trouble with water damage in the basement. We are working on fixing this problem down the line, but as of right now we recommend that our residents keep contents that should not get wet up off of the floor. Apologies for this inconvenience!
Some units have pipes, electrical cords and such that run through them. It may therefore be necessary for the board to access these through your unit. If this is the case, the board will contact you when needed. 
It is not allowed to keep furniture or other belongings in the common areas, according to borettslaget's fire routines. Belongings that are left behind will be thrown away by the janitor, and paid by the resident in question. 
It is not allowed to let or lend out your storage unit to a person who does not live in our building.

There are four moving trolleys in the basement corridor behind the elevators. All residents may use these. They unlock with your system key.

Other waste, like furniture, electronics and dangerous waste, CANNOT be thrown away or left here. It is your responsibility to remove this. It is not allowed to leave waste in the common areas.
