If you wish to access the landlords' contact information it is required that you purchase a subscription-based access.

The purchase of access to the landlord's contact information is, like the other services on BostadsZonen, an online service with the simultaneous creation of an ongoing subscription that gives you access to the landlord's contact information on the active housing ads available at www.BostadsZonen.se
BostadsZonen is not involved in either the contact between the tenant and the landlord, or the actual rental of the respective rental housing.

A subscription period begins at the time the purchase is completed - which means at the time the subscription is created. Therefore, it is not the time at which the amount is deducted from your bank account that is decisive for the length of the period.

If you do not receive the email confirming your termination, or if you experience other problems in connection with your termination, you must immediately contact our customer service so that we can help and check whether the termination has gone through correctly.
