Majority of ownership transfers will be carried out through an estate agent, who will then be able to guide through the process. When the transfer of ownership is the result of a private property sale, a gift deed, division of estate or inheritance we require copies of the legal documents as we act as trustees of the property. Upon receiving the copies we will ensure that the correct details of ownership are registered with the housing association. The copies of the legal documents should be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or to the following address;
HSB Göteborg, Överlåtelser
Box 311 11
A fee will be charged when details of ownership changes due to a sale of an apartment or a gift deed, as of 2018 this fee is currently 1138 SEK. It is however free of charge to register new details regarding ownership should the change be due to an inheritance or a division of estate. Please be informed that when details of ownership changes due to inheritance you will be required to send in copies of the registered account of the estate, as well as copies of any last will of testament. Furthermore, you are also required to send us copies of the formal distribution of inheritance.
When we have received the copies of the legal documents we will pass them on electronically to the property’s Housing Association for approval of any new members. Please note that the new owners are required to be HSB House Saving Account holders and Members of HSB Gothenburg in order for the Housing Association of the property to be able to approve the new owners. Please find further information below; “Am I required to be a member of HSB Gothenburg in order to own a HSB Housing Association Apartment”.
