What you need to know about Sweden’s rent hikes

Sweden has introduced rent increases to tackle the shortage of affordable housing in the country, according to a report by a leading housing think tank.

The country’s housing stock is being stretched to the limit as more and more renters are forced to pay for accommodation in rental properties, as Sweden’s government struggles to find housing for the growing number of immigrants arriving in the capital, Stockholm.

Sweden has introduced new rules to force all rent-paying households to pay a certain percentage of their income for the housing in their rental properties.

The rules also require those renting out property to rent a smaller amount of their rental income to cover the increase in the rent, with those renting larger amounts to be charged more.

The government has introduced a special tax for the first time to fund the increase, which will bring the national average rent to around 500 euros a month.

The increase will apply to rent-to-own and rent-for-rent properties, with a maximum increase of 10 percent in 2017.

But it will also apply to a range of existing properties, including apartment and small town houses.

The Swedish Housing Agency said the increase would bring the total national increase to around 5 percent in the year 2020.
