Rented flats and maintenance
Dunderbacken is a cooperative housing association which rents out flats to members. The association itself rents the entire building from a municipal housing company. The association is the landlord for the tenants (members).

The owner of the building, the municipal housing company Familjebostäder is responsible for maintenance (the flats and all the communal areas) and for examining flats when somebody moves out.

Application for membership
Members should primarily be 40 years of age or older and not have any children living at home. We try to have a good balance of ages, sex and ethnicity. We don’t have a queue for flats (which is otherwise the standard system for flats owned by the municipality). Instead new tenants are chosen after they apply (via our website) and we then interview the most suitable candidates.

Communal areas of about 500 sqm
Restaurant-standard kitchen, dining room, sitting room, guest rooms,hobbyrooms & office, sauna/gym, laundry rooms, storage areas, rubbish room (all rubbish is sorted) plus garden

Obligatory participation in cooking and cleaning, and responsibility for the management of the building
Cooking: every 6th week Mon-Frid (dinner at 17.45). There are six cooking groups. It costs 30 kr for residents to eat dinner and 40 kr for guests. On Fridays it costs a bit more. You sign up for dinner the evening before.

Each cleaning group cleans the communal areas in the house every 7th week.

Groups and activities
We have a number of working groups, which is part of our agreement with the municipal housing company, and some of these are necessary for the house to function properly: so-called ”must have” groups: Economic management, garden, membership approval, marketing, cleaning, food & menus, a committee to deal with sensitive issues, and  a group to arrange general meetings.

There are also several other working groups, special interests and study groups. Members who live in the building are expected to be active in at least one group.

How decisions are made
Annual General Meeting, committee, general meetings, ’sofa meetings’, delegation to working groups.
