Water and electricity

From this page, you’ll find information about water, electricity, and heating on our properties.


Water is included in the rent in most of Hoas apartments. When the water is included in the rent, the tenant doesn’t have a separate water fee. In our newest and recently renovated properties there is monthly advance for water, which makes it possible to invoice the tenant based on their actual water usage.

Shared apartments

Electricity is included in the rent in shared apartments. You do not need to make your own electricity contract.

Studios, two-room, and family apartments

Please see your housing offer to find information about if the electricity is included in your rent. If the electricity is not included, you will need to make your own electricity contract before you move in. The advantage of making your own contract is that you can influence the total amount of your electric bill by monitoring your electric usage.

To find the best electricity contract, you should compare different electricity service providers and prices before you make a contract. You can compare different contracts available for Hoas homes conveniently at


Heating the apartments is included in the rent. Our properties are heated with district heating and the temperature is managed with automatic thermostats that work in relation to the outdoor temperature. However, please note that if your apartment has for example heated flooring, the usage will show in your electric bill.
