Thursday 23 April 18:00 – Housing in Sweden

We’ve arranged this event to help you understand the complexities of renting or buying a home in Sweden. Are you concerned about your rights as a tenant or wondering how the mortgage system works? As an international living in Sweden, there will no doubt be differences to the systems in your own country and you may be uncertain of where to find reliable advice.

Join us for an informative evening with plenty of time to ask questions of our guest speakers.
