Life as a tenant-owner
There is a tenant-owner property for everyone. At OBOS we build tenant-owner apartments in apartment blocks, terraced houses, link-detached houses, semi-detached houses – and even detached houses. Living as a tenant-owner is ideal if you’re looking for more freedom than a regular rental contract, but with less responsibility than owning the whole home yourself.
You look after your home – the cooperative looks after the building
The private housing cooperative owns the building, and the land it is built on. As a tenant-owner you own a share in the housing cooperative, and have the right to use a particular apartment. This means that you look after your home on the inside. The housing cooperative is responsible for taking care of the building and any related grounds. As a tenant-owner and member of the private housing cooperative, you can be involved in making decisions about care and maintenance – and this way, you can also influence your housing costs.
