A lot of the houses we rent out are privately owned houses, where the landlords themselves are moving abroad for a number of years. Most landlords would prefer a rental agreement that has a similar duration to their own stay. The prospect should state if it is unlimited lease period or if there is a time limit. It is standard with a three years lease agreement, with 3 month´s notice period for the lessor and/or the lessee, or with a certain binding time to either secure the lessor, the lessee or both.
Norwegian houses and apartments that are new or newly renovated are usually of a good or high standard. The houses and apartments are mainly heated with electricity or water based heating - some have wood burning stoves or gas stoves. The bathrooms are normally tiled with underfloor heating. The size of the houses varies from approx. 150 m2 to 350 m2. It is important to check the size of living space your family require. Especially if you are bringing furniture with you from abroad. The bedrooms in Norway are generally small – it is usually only space for a double bed in the master bedroom and single beds in the children’s bedrooms. It should normally be some wardrobes installed in the houses.
A typical Norwegian house is built of wood. It generally has a sloping ceiling that steals some of the living space from the rooms upstairs. Normally you will find that there are bedrooms upstairs, or a “loft stue” – upstairs living room. A lot of Norwegian houses have a main part that is available for rent - with a separate basement apartment downstairs that either is included or not. Please check the listing for more info.
The rental marked in Stavanger is very hectic, especially in the summer season. There are a lot of families moving from abroad to Norway to work for oil companies, Nato JWC or other companies. It is the landlords decision who he/she would like to rent the house/apartment to. There might be several interested parties in one house, so you may not necessarily get the house you want. It is always good to have one or two other alternatives in case the offer falls through. Especially if you are in Stavanger on a pre-visit and need to leave before an offer has been accepted. Sometimes the rental price will have to be increased, or there might be other things that need to be agreed between the parties before we have a final agreement.
Please be informed that by Norwegian Law, it is only allowed to negotiate and give a legally binding offer for one property at the same time. When the offer is sent to the landlord – and he/she accepts, this forms a legally binding agreement that both parties have to adhere to – even if the contract is not completed. As a foreigner it will be a security for you to rent a property through a certified estate agent.
When we have a final agreement – the estate agent will contact you and a contract will be drawn up – both in Norwegian and English – between the two parties. If you have to travel home before we have written the agreement it is possible for you to scan your signature back to us.
Before moving in / start of lease - it is expected that you pay the first rental payment (one month´s lease) to the landlord and two months deposit in security. The deposit will be transferred to a separate deposit account in the name of the tenant. As long as the tenancy lasts, neither can dispose of the amount on their own. The tenant may claim the accrued interest paid out. The money will be released by both parties at the end of the lease agreement or, if any disagreement, by an appraiser. Accrued interest in the period will devolve on the lessee.
We can help establishing a deposit account through SR-Bank. We will need your D-number and copy of ID (passport, driver´s licens etc). The lessor will be charged the expenses of opening the deposit account. If you do not have a D-number we will have to find another way of securing the agreed amount.
If you would like to move forward with a rental agreement for a property, let the estate agent know and send in a tender form. This will enable us to contact the landlord and get a quick reply.
