Fanö A to Z
If you want to replace your door with a safety door it is important that the new door does not have a deviant color. The color code we use are named either NCS 7020-Y80 or RAL 8016, depending on wich system is used. We are not allowed to change the color profiles, we need to follow the guide lines that were written when the houses were built.
The apartment number can be found on the top corner of your door. This number could be handy remember, as it is this number you use to book the laundry rooms and to make damage reports to HSB.
The community consists of 294 apartments on Sorögatan 29-117.
Due to the risk of broken windows and other unfortunate damages, ball games on the association’s surfaces are not allowed. Instead, such activity is referred to Kvarnbackaskolan’s schoolyard or Kvarnbacka football field.
First rule is to make sure the smoke does not bother your neighbours. Because of fire regulations, the types of grills are restricted to what kind of apartment you have:
- Apartment with balcony: Only electric grills are allowed.
- Apartment with patio: Coal- or gas grill may be used if it stands on some kind of structure (i.e. legs or stand). Just make sure it is set up at least five (5) meters from the building.
When renovation the bathrooms, Fanö will pay the expenses for new ball valves and a new floor drain. Contact the Board for more information, or read our Information about bathroom renovations. When you are renovating the bathroom, it is important that this is done by a contractor with so called “wetroom competence” (behörighet för våtrum). After the work is done they will have to give you a document that garanties you there will be no problem with leakage or dampness. If any damage would occur, Fanö will pay for the work of tearing up and drying out, but the resident will themself have to pay for the restoration. This is why it is important to have condominium additional (bostadsrättstillägg) on your insurance.
On the proprties there are several bike sheds available. They are free of charge. However, to get a key you will need to pay a deposit of 500SEK. They payment is done through HSB.

Twice a year we host a yard cleaning. It is nice if as many residents as possible could come and help. Dusting, litter picking and repaintings are some of the tasks that may need to be done. Participating in the cleaning is also a nice way to get to know your neighbours. After the work is done we serve fika.
The stairs are cleaned by a cleaning service. If you have any input or concerns, please contact the Board.
As of right now, Fanö does not have any contracts on disturbance calls. If you wish to report a disturbance, please do so by email to the Board. If you hear fighting or some other kind of ongoing crime – contact the police.

It is a requirement that all apartments have at least one smoke alarm installed. If you live in a small apartment, we advice you to put the smoke alarm just outside the bedroom. In a larger apartment, a second one can be put just inside of the apartment door. Make sure to change the battery in each smoke alarm at least once every year.
Because fire prevention reasons – no items may be placed in the stairs. Bikes are to be placed in the bike racks or bike sheds. Strollers can be placed in the sheds.

Big flower pots on the floor are not allowed, but smaller ones on the windowsills are allowed as long as they are cared for.

If you buy a new stove, make sure it is using three-phase electric power (400V/16A) and AC power plugs. The plug looks like a regular grounded power plug, but with more and bigger pins.

Ask the store you buy the stove from to take care of your old one, so you won’t have to transport it to a recycling station. Remember, it is not allowed to throw your old stove away at the electrics shed on the property.
