Housing

Most Mölndal residents live in one of the population centres –  Mölndal, Kållered or Lindome. About two thirds of housing is detached or terraced houses, or tenant owned flats. Only a third are flats to rent. The fact that few new flats to rent are being built, and the fact that Mölndal is an attractive municipality to live in, means that vacant flats are coveted.
