It is a big decision to sign a lease agreement for residential housing. The process can seem complicated and there are many things to consider. That is why it is important to know your rights and obligations according to the Icelandic Rent Act.
Alma's goal is to help develop a solid and professional rental market in Iceland. We strive to develop a good relationship with our customers and provide them with outstanding service. To assist you in this process, we have compiled the main points to keep in mind when entering a lease agreement, during the term of the lease, the expiry of the lease agreement, along other practical information. All information about rights and obligations is based on the Icelandic Rent Act no. 36/1994.
If you do not find the answer to your question on our website, we encourage you to contact the Tenant Hotline operated by Orator, the association of law students at the University of Iceland, which is sponsored by Alma. The consultancy number, 552 1325, is free of charge and is open every Wednesday between 18:00 and 20:00.
