Community association Kåranäs Stugby( Kåranäs cottage village)

A community consists of land, facilities, rights and more that jointly belong to several properties. A community association is normally established after the construction of a new residential area to be responsible for the management of the common assets. In addition to land, Kåranäs Stugby community also manages pool areas, fiber equipment, common buildings/facilities, roads, water and sewerage as well as electricity lines to all properties. Members of the community association become those who buy a property within the community.

This means that residents of Kåranäs Stugby are jointly responsible for the operation and maintenance of our common facilities including land and green areas. The community association takes care of all that on behalf of the property owners.

Communities are regulated in the Act (1973:1150) on the management of communities, the Property Development Act (1970:988), the Construction Act (1973:1149) and the Act (1998:812) with special provisions on water activities (waste water act).

The law stipulates that every association that is formed must be governed by statutes, like any other association. These statutes must be approved and filed with the Land Survey, which is the supervisory authority for community associations in Sweden. The statutes can be read further down on this page, see statutes.

In addition to the statutes, the association, through the annual general meeting and the board, can decide on additional rules and regulations that are considered important for both the accommodation and the administration to be as good as possible. One such example is the community's rules/guidelines for felling trees or painting the houses.

The residents can and should participate in the management of the community either directly or indirectly. Direct participation is getting involved in the board's work, while indirect participation is contributing ideas and proposals for changes through motions. For residents who want to be involved and influence how the community association is run, the annual general meeting each year is an important occasion. Here decisions are made about the board, but also the budget for the coming administrative year.

The association board gratefully accepts proposals from residents within Kåranäs Stugby. Proposals can be submitted by residents at any time during the year and are then handled by the association board.

Proposals must be submitted in writing to the association's e-mail at the address office@semesterbyn.se

Proposal before the annual general meeting
The last date for motions before the annual general meeting is always the last of February.

Maintenance and renovation plan

Community associations that manage community facilities that are of a municipal-technical nature or otherwise of greater value must, according to § 19 of the Act (1973:1150) on the management of community facilities (SFL), allocate funds to a fund to ensure the facility's future maintenance and renewal.

In order to be able to calculate the allocation to such a fund, a maintenance and renewal plan is established.

With the adoption of a maintenance and renewal plan for the Community Kåranäs Stugby, we have jointly agreed on the principles for how we;

  • describes the scope of our facility
  • value our facility
  • assesses lifespan and measures for the various parts of the facility
  • defines the purpose and use of the maintenance and renewal fund
  • looks at the financing of the measures
  • looking at the frequency of plan renewal

The maintenance and renewal plan is managed by the association's board, but ultimately the association's members jointly own these principles.

The plan is adopted during the upcoming general meeting.

Association fee

The association fee will initially end up at SEK 1,250/month. It will be paid per month and determined by the annual general meeting. The association has adopted a maintenance and renewal plan to be able to plan adjustments to the association fee to meet future expenses. Investments can be the purchase or refurbishment of other facilities that benefit the association's members and help maintain the area's attractiveness for both residents, visitors and prospective buyers.

The association fee includes: 
Board work and administration, operation and maintenance of common buildings / facilities, land areas, roads, water and sewage, allocation to maintenance fund, electricity fee for operation of street lighting, pool areas, electricity consumption of common buildings, common activities such as spring and autumn cleaning. Purchase of service for maintenance of pools and green areas April-Oct. Boat space for everyone and care and maintenance of piers are included in the association fee.

A full description of how the association fee is distributed will be drawn up after the first association meeting.

In addition to the association fee, each property pays for its own electricity consumption. Electricity meters are in every house.

TV: Digital/Broadband TV, Boxer or satellite TV . Agreements are signed and paid for by individual homeowners.

Broadband/internet: Fiber 250 /250 is available throughout cottage village, which is wireless. Each house has its own equipment for which each property is individually responsible. A fee is paid each year for the service and is included in the Association fee.

Electricity: An agreement is signed for each house group, electricity meters are in each house.

The association is charged for electricity consumption via a central meter.

The electricity consumption must then be paid for separately by each homeowner and their own reading can be done. If you are not there, the person in charge appointed by the association will read the electricity meter in the house. If you cannot provide electricity reading in another way.

Water fee: Each house group has its own deep-drilled well. The operation of the pump and facility is included in the association fee.

However, it is not permitted to take water to your own built pool or other device. Automatic irrigation of the garden is not permitted. The water included in the fee is only for normal household consumption.

If you need more water, contact the board.

Sewer: Municipal fee is included in the association fee.

Annual report: Annual report can be submitted via e-mail

The association fee and electricity consumption must be paid by direct debit and a consent to direct debit connection must be submitted to the association by the new owner in connection with the transfer.

Rules and regulations 

Does the association have any well-being rules?

Does the community has rules about when and how, for example, you can disturb your neighbors with repairs, renovations or parties?
We don't have that, but common sense applies. And that applies to everything and everyone who lives in the cottage village. Everyone wants to have a good time and enjoy themselves, so treat everyone in the best way!

That is the most important rule here!

Since we live close together, it goes without saying that you inform your nearest neighbors in good time if you are going to have a party that you think might disturb or if you are going to carry out renovation work that you think might disturb, e.g. on weekends and evenings. When it comes to ball games, it is forbidden to play ball against the walls or the pool area. It is also not allowed to play football between the houses. There is a ball fields that can be used instead.

Can you charge your electric car in the socket?

No, it is forbidden. The outlets are not secured to handle that load.
There is a risk of fire when charging the electric car from the house's power socket! 
Motorhomes and caravans or external devices must not be connected to the house or area's electrical outlet.

The electrical sockets are adapted for household power only.

If there is a big interest, the association can look at possibilities for charging electric cars in the future. You as members must speak about your wishes at the meetings.

Where can I throw the rubbish?

There are bins for recycling food waste at the car park. Paper bags must be used and are available in the laundry room.

There are also bins for household waste in the car park. You must not put things that can damage our environment such as batteries, fluorescent tubes, electrical and electronic waste and other hazardous waste into the waste bin. You should also not put in things that can be recycled or reused (newspapers, packaging of glass and other materials as well as useful clothes and gadgets). For this purpose, find recycling stations, for example one at the fire station in Väckelsång and below Runes Gasstation, where you can also throw away furniture and construction waste, chemicals etc.

It is not permitted to store rubbish, construction waste, vehicles or garbage on the plot or the patio. It can attract vermin and must be taken to the rubbish dump as soon as possible


No food or things attractive to pests may be stored in the storerooms or things that can spread odors or destroy other people's belongings.

Repaint or change the color of the house

The rules in Sweden say:
If the building or area has a special, uniform or period-typical character, style or color changes are not permitted on individual properties.

The community association has decided that a uniform character must be maintained and therefore the houses must maintain color and appearance. You may therefore not change the color of the house or change the style so that it deviates from other properties in the area.

Always attend a meeting with the association and ask the other property owners before making any changes.

If you are planning any remodeling or extension to your property, we want you to submit drawings and building permits to the Board in good time before you start your construction.

New construction or extension

According to the Planning and Building Act, a new building or extension may not be placed closer than 4.5 meters to the plot boundary without the neighbour's consent. You must never build so that the lake or pool view of another property is impaired. In most cases, this means that in addition to seeking consent from the nearest neighbour, you also need to seek consent from the community, as the community's land in the majority of cases borders private plots. Therefore, always contact the community first before making any changes to your plot so that we can review maps and drawings together to be on the safe side that it will be correct. If a property owner builds something without permission, it is considered illegal construction and the community can demand that the facility be demolished and that the land be restored at the property owner's expense. 

Balconies, fences, patios and conservatories

As a property owner, you must always contact the board of the community before you build a patio, patio or conservatory on your own property because the extension/new construction may be built on top of our culvert system for sewage and water. Drawings of culverts, wells, etc. always need to be checked before construction! Sometimes culverts have to be dug up to repair lines. Anyone who builds a patio, builds conservatories, etc. on land that goes on top of a culvert needs to be aware that this entails a risk. If the association is forced to carry out excavation work to, for example, expose culverts or wells due to leaking pipes and the balcony has to be broken up, a stone wall must be dismantled, etc., then it is always the individual property owner who must bear the cost of restoring what was built on top of the culvert . This is regardless of whether the extension/new construction has been approved or not. All approvals from the community regarding construction over culverts take place with this reservation. As a rule, the board does not allow permanent construction on top of community infrastructure, i.e. trunks, lines and pipes, wells and other things.

Excavation, ground work

We have power lines in the ground between the houses and to the lighting poles. When poles are driven into the ground, there is a risk that electricity, water or fiber cables in the ground will be damaged. Always check with the association's board if you are going to knock down posts for, for example, a fence. We can then use drawings to check where the power lines run at your property. If no inspection takes place and you, as the property owner, cause damage, you will be responsible for the cost of repair and restoration yourself.

How do I deal with damage to community property?

If you discover an injury, we want you to report this directly to the board or deputy host. The same applies if you yourself cause an injury, for example by running into a pole or garage door or the like. In the case of car damage, it is usually covered by your motor insurance. Other damages may be covered by your home insurance. We strongly recommend that everyone, both property owners and condominium owners, have valid home insurance! The damage itself is then usually settled between the insurance companies, alternatively the community carries out, for example, repairs and then charges this cost either to the person who caused the damage or their insurance company.

How do you proceed if you want the association to take down trees on common land?

When there are requests from members for the association to take down trees on the association's land, e.g. at a playground or for the view, the association naturally wants to meet requests for this. Tree felling may only be carried out by professional contractors. . The association applies an approach which means that the member who wants the association to take down one or more trees must anchor this proposal with their neighbors or those most closely affected.

(Statutes will be translated shortly. There are clauses that must be in an association, how many must be on the board, how many meetings per year, etc. Nothing that affects the accommodation itself or the ownership.)
