Rent – Deposit - eFaktura
SiÅs does not require a deposit. Rent is invoiced in advance and must be paid by the 1st of each month. The rent invoice is published on YourPage at unialltid. The first invoice is normally calculated after you have moved in, and may therefore have a different payment deadline. When paying via online banking in a Norwegian bank, we recommend that you approve eFaktura - then you can also pay with vipps.

Reminder, debt collection and deviation
Failure to pay rent entails a reminder and collection notice before the case is sent to a debt collection agency. This entails fees and interest that are charged to the tenant in full. In the event of a deviation, a court fee is paid in addition to the fees demanded by the bailiff.

Right to cancel                                                                                                                                                        See tenancy contract. Right of withdrawal when signing a lease is determined by the Right to cancellation Act. If you ask to move in before the right of withdrawal has expired, you must sign and acknowledge that the right of withdrawal will be lost, cf. Right of Cancellation Act § 19 and § 22.

A fixed amount is paid per month for energy consumption, see invoice for rent. The fixed amount is estimated based on the energy cost that SiÅs has per year. If the actual energy cost deviates significantly from the estimate, SiÅs has the right to adjust the fixed amount so that the costs are covered in the current rental period. SiÅs encourages all tenants to use electricity sensibly, to avoid additional bills.

Termination of contract

Contracts with an expiry date beyond December 31 can be terminated with three months' notice from the 15th or last day of the month.
