Everything you need to know so you can use Hemavi’s rental agreements like a pro.
How does Hemavi’s rental agreements work?
To use Hemavi for signing your digital contract, simply begin with choosing whether you are subletting a room or an apartment. Thereafter, you’ll be asked to enter the names and emails of the landlord and tenant. Now you will receive an email with a link to the contract signature tool.
You can easily add the required information in the contract, such as street address and monthly rent, etc. When you are happy with the information, you sign the contract with the click of a button. When you’ve signed the contract, the tenant will get an email with an invitation to review and sign the rental agreement.
How do I sign the rental agreement?
After you’ve received an email with the link to your rental agreement, and you’ve filled in the required information, you can easily sign by clicking the button in the bottom right corner called “Sign”. Remember that the signing is legally binding, so make sure that you get everything right before signing the contract.
I have signed the lease, what happens now?
Using a contract from Hemavi is similar to signing a physical lease with your tenant by hand (only more convenient and quicker). So, after you’ve signed the digital rental agreement, you simply continue with the move-in process as you have agreed upon with your customer success agent. Usually, the next stay is to determine the specifics of how and when the tenant will get the keys to your place.
Should I ask for a deposit from my tenant?
At Hemavi, we always recommend securing at least one month’s deposit from your tenant, in order to guarantee your safety during the rental. However, since the first month’s rent is already paid by the tenant when booking your place, it is recommend to have the tenant transfer the deposit to you after, but in close connection with, the move-in date.
How does Hemavi’s contracts deal with tenancy protection?
The Swedish rental law (sw: Hyreslagen) is based on the principle that all residential rental agreements are covered by tenancy protection (sw: besittningsskydd) regardless of the length of the tenancy. Tenancy protection means that a tenant has the right to have the rental agreement extended if the landlord terminates it, unless in certain exceptions. One of these exceptions is if an agreement waiving tenancy protection is formulated in a separate agreement and is then approved by Hyresnämnden. We recommend visiting the Hyresnämndens website for the latest information.
