In order to ensure a successful coexistence in apartment buildings, there are a few things to keep in mind.

Félagsbústaðir puts a lot of emphasis on ensuring that communities in apartment buildings are welcoming, that people take each other into consideration and that they generally feel good. When signing a leasing agreement, service consultants inform new tenants on the general rules of conduct in apartment buildings as well as duties and responsibilities that come with living in an apartment building. 

In order to ensure a successful coexistence, it is especially important to ensure that you:

  • Show consideration, keep in mind to cause the least disturbance to other residents and take care not to make a lot of noise, commotion, loud music and unnecessary coming and going in common areas between 22:00 at night and 08:00 in the morning.
  • Are tidy in the common areas and do not store your belongings, packaging, rubbish or anything else in common areas, bicycle storages or other shared areas. Store motorcycles, without exception, outdoors, and store car tyres in storage rooms and bicycles in bicycle storage areas. Throw rubbish in the rubbish bin or take to Sorpa. 
  • Follow the rules for keeping animals in apartment buildings. Félagsbústaðir generally approves the keeping of animals in the company’s apartments but draws attention to the fact that keeping animals in apartment buildings is always subject to the approval of other residents, according to Article 33 a. of the Act on Multi-Owner Buildings No. 26/1994, and is subject to the approval of 2/3 of the owners who have a common entrance or staircase.
  • Carry out common responsibilities, where appropriate, which usually involves vacuuming the stairwell, mopping the floors, cleaning windows as well as cleaning and replacing rubbish bins. 
  • Take special care that the smell of sigarette smoke does not escape into the stairwell or common areas and make sure that smoking does not affect your neighbours.
