How to create a profile and purchase a subscription on BostadsPortal:
To take advantage of all our tools as a housing seeker, such as saving your searches and receiving notifications about new properties, you need to create a free profile. To contact landlords, you need an active subscription.
- Press the 'Contact' or 'To the landlord' button in an ad
Choose the subscription and payment method you want.
All our subscriptions are non-binding, with automatic renewal. And you can cancel at any time during the subscription period.
Fill in your details and accept BostadsPortal's terms.
You also have the option to optionally subscribe to our newsletter and service emails, filled with information and helpful tips for your housing search.
Note: If you use BostadsPortal's app on Android or iPhone, you need to purchase the subscription through the App Store or Google Play.
How to search for a property on BostadsPortal:
For the best experience, we recommend being logged into your user profile when searching for properties on BostadsPortal.
- Enter the city or town in the search field or select the desired property type under 'Categories' on BostadsPortal's website.
Then filter and sort your search in the left column.
The more specific your search is, the more relevant your results will be.
How to receive notifications about new properties via alert emails:
We always recommend our housing seekers to save their searches as alerts - what we call an Alert Mail. Then you will automatically receive an email notification every time a new property is added to BostadsPortal that matches your search criteria.
You create an Alert Mail by activating the field 'Activate search agent', which is displayed in the upper left corner of the image above.
You can find your search agents by clicking on your profile picture (Menu) in the upper right corner and then on 'Search agents'. Here you can view, extend, and delete your alerts.
You can save as many alerts as you like.

How to contact a landlord on BostadsPortal:
Click on the 'Contact' button in the ad you're interested in to write a message to the landlord.
We strongly recommend that you make an effort to send a good application. The better message you send, the greater chance you have of being invited to a viewing and ultimately signing the contract.
Contact landlord by phone:
In some cases, you also have the opportunity to get the landlord's phone number. This is only possible for the landlords who have chosen to add a phone number to their ad. If there is no number in the contact field, the landlord does not want to be contacted by phone, and you should use the 'Contact' button.
It is not possible to contact BostadsPortal's customer service to get the landlord's phone number or other information.
