The tariff of Félagsbústaðir is based on clauses in the company's lease agreements and on par.4, art.19 in the law no. 52/2016, on public apartments. The tariff is valid from January 1, 2024.

Apartment transfer fee
Onetime fee: 30.000 kronur
Fee per day: 3.000 kronur

An apartment transfer fee is incurred when tenants are moving between apartments owned by Félagsbústaðir. Apartment transfer fee
is divided into a onetime fee of 30.000 kronur, which is added to the first month of rent
when the tenant signs the lease for the new apartment, and a fee per day, 3.000 kronur, for each day that a tenant still has keys to the old apartment while having signed a lease for the new one.
A fee per day is collected from day two onewards which means that
if a tenant has signed the lease for the new apartment on a Monday he/she/they can return the keys to the old apartment on a Tuesday without any day fees.
If he/she/they return the keys on a Wednesday a fee of 3.000 kronur will be collected and the total fee for the apartment transfer will amount to 33.000 kronur. Tenants can distribute these costs with their rental payment, for up to six months.

when creating invoices in the bank (heimabanki).

Should a tenant want to receive the invoice in paper this can be arranged but a postage fee will be collected.
