Outdoor environment

  • Flower beds and self-planted trees/shrubs adjacent to the outside door and patio should be maintained by the owner of the cooperative flat.
  • The ground surface (flowerbed soil, gravel, slabs, paving etc.) closest to the house should be at least 5 cm below the brick’s lower edge and 10 cm below the wooden façade/drop apron.
  • Leaves and other rubbish should be regularly removed from the ventilation openings (half pipes). There are two in front and two at the back. The patio should be kept clean and tidy. Food should not be stored on the patio, due to pests.
  • The flat owner has the right to, with a fence (wooden), enclose maximum 1.0 meter (2 rooms and kitchen) and 2.0 m (3-4 rooms and kitchen) measured from the end of the current partition walls. There must however be at least 1.10 m between the fence and the hedge to enable its maintenance. Hedges along the partition walls and their extension should not be taller than the low ends of the latter. Once the fence is erected, the flat owner is responsible for the grass cutting within the enclosure.
  • Hot tubs and big pools are not permissible! A big pool means a lot of water, 150 litres or more (compared to a bathtub that contains 150 litres but also has a drain for drainage). The prohibition is based on the large water consumption and also on the fact that all members jointly pay for water consumption. Moreover, the building foundations are not designed to drain a large amount of water and therefore are at risk of damage.

Refuse collection and disposal and other common areas

  • The refuse should be sorted and disposed in designated containers, in the refuse rooms. Each container is marked with what should be and should not be thrown in it.
  • Sort everything that can be sorted at source. There are containers for food waste,domestic waste, glass (coloured and uncoloured), wastepaper, carton, plastic, metal, batteries, bulbs and other light sources, and small electronic waste. Hazardous waste, e.g. solvents and edible oils should be left at one of the municipal recycling stations. White goods, cookers, washing machines, dryers, etc. should be transported away by the individual member. The closest recycling station is in Gunnesbo.

Rules for order and well-being

  • Garbage bags should not be kept outside the door rather should be disposed straight in the designated container in the refuse room. Cartons and the like should be folded/minimised/pressed so that they don’t take a lot of space in the container! Large quantities of packaging during reconstruction/renovation should be disposed at the recycling station. Garden waste can be put in the large container at Taxi 1, which is then disposed by the janitor. It should be in a carton or a plastic bag.
  • The lumber room in the attic and the outside storage room should be kept nice and clean. The doors between the lumber room in the attic should not be blocked by things. In the external storage rooms, it is forbidden to keep things in the hallway. If there are things in the hallway, they will be disposed. If the flat owner loses the storage room keys, he is responsible for the cost of a new key. See the current price list.
  • Pram and cycle storage rooms are for prams and cycles. When you move out, remember to take your things from these storage rooms. If the flat owner loses the storage room keys, he is responsible for the cost of a new key. See the current price list.

Traffic & parking

  • The housing area should be free of vehicle traffic i.e., car, motorcycle and moped traffic. The cycle should not be parked in the passageways or in front of the buildings.
  • Parking is prohibited throughout the area and in turning areas, and applies to all vehicle types. Emergency access roads must always be accessible. More information is available on parking regulations.
  • Vehicle traffic is allowed only in exceptional cases andat a maximum speed of 7km/hour. Transport for the disabled and sick, and moving and large goods transports are permitted. THINK about everyone – Drive very slowly. Deliveries, for instance, takeaway food, should be collected in the turning area. They are not allowed to drive into the area. The home care staff is also not allowed to park close to the building, rather in our visitor parking. The first four hours are free for all; kindly inform the home care staff.
  • At Taxi 1, there are two handicap spaces, and the same rules apply in the other visitor parking.

Show regard and respect

  • There should be no disturbing noise between 22.00 and 07.00. On weekends, Saturdays and Sundays, no disturbing noise should be made before 10.00. In general, members should show regard and discretion. Show respect to neighbours even during other hours.
  • Consider that the space between the flats is insufficiently soundproof and the partition walls in the patios are not sound-insulating. Everyone should be able to be in their patios without being disturbed by the neighbour.
  • Grilling with coal, gas and electricity is permissible to those who have a patio. In the loft houses, only the electric grill applies.

Laundry rooms

  • Laundry rooms should be used between 7.00 and 21.00. One time slot can be booked at a time. Booked laundry time that is not used within an hour is considered as vacant and should be used by another member.
  • The laundry room should always be cleaned after use. If you notice a functional error in the washing machine, dryer or drying cabinet, report to the maintenance man.
  • Lock cylinders for the booking board are marked with the respective flat numbers; if the flat owner loses it, he is accountable for its cost. See the current price list.

Reconstructions and renovations

  • Modifications in the cooperative housing society flat, indoors and outdoors, should be approved by the committee before the start of work. The drawing should be attached to the application. The application can be collected from the maintenance man, Mats Persson tel: +46 (0) 703- 23 23 42, number 194 or should be filled in on the website tab “About Brf Hubertus/Commonly asked questions”
  • The work/reconstruction is to be performed professionally. The tradesman must submit a certificate for the work performed, and a guarantee A flat in a cooperative housing society signifies the interior of the flat and the outdoor space that extends to the end of the partition walls or the end of the balcony.
  • Modification may entail removal of wall (note not the load-bearing wall), moving the bathtub, etc. The drain in the bathroom should be moved during renovation or reconstruction, and must be performed by a certified tradesman! The association is responsible for replacing the drain (max 5,000 SEK), if required, pursuant to industry rules for wet areas.
  • The cooker hood in the kitchen may have a motor, however it should have a damper to close the maximum flow. There should be a basic flow when the ventilator/cooker hood is not used for cooking. The flat has an exhaust air system for the ventilation.
  • Each flat has a separate powered roof ventilator, which should always be on. This applies to two, three and four-room flats. Two-room flats in the loft building have a central ventilator in the attic and therefore, you must only install the cooker hood with damper, not motor-driven hoods!
  • Always contact the maintenance man, Mats Persson, before starting the renovation!

Broadband & TV

  • Consider that the fibre converter for internet contains a very sensitive fibreglass wire that can get easily damaged. Therefore, try not to move or remove the box. If the fibre is broken, it must be replaced completely, which costs a significant amount if the flat owner is to bear the cost.
  • When installing the satellite antenna, make sure that it does not extend outside the partition walls in the patio or the balcony walls and rails.
  • When moving, keep in mind that the internet subscription is personal even though it is paid for by the association. Therefore, discontinue the internet and related services. Router and its cable should be left in the flat when you move!


  • The guest room can be booked through the committee. The cost is 100 SEK/night. The person collecting the key is responsible for cleaning and tidying up the room after use.
  • Dogs should always be kept on leash within the area. Animals should not excrete in the area. If this happens, the owner is responsible to pick up after the animal.
  • Occurrence of flour-beetles, moth or other bugs should be immediately notified to the maintenance man or the committee. The association has an insurance from Folksam. Problems with ants and wasps are also covered in it.
  • For urgent matters outside office hours, see our website tab “About Brf Hubertus/Commonly asked questions”.
