Applying for an apartment
If you are interested in our reasonably priced rental homes, fill in an apartment application. We rent out all the apartments that become vacant based on the applications we have received.
When you fill in and submit our online application, it will become active the next working day. A link to the application form is below; it is available only in Finnish. If you want to fill in a paper application, you can get one from our office.
We rent out apartments based on the information provided in the application, so please fill in the application with care. Only applicants who are 18 or older can rent an apartment. Note: in the online application you need to round all euro figures to full euros.
Once you have submitted your application, you can download its contents as a PDF file. The application is valid for four months. After four months, if we haven’t been able to offer an apartment that meets your criteria, you can continue applying for one by renewing your applicaton. Instructions on how to renew the application are below.
Changing and renewing your application
After you have submitted an internet application, you can change the information in it, or renew or delete the application by clicking the button below. In order to do so you must identify yourself in the service with your online banking credentials. The identification process is done through a secure connection.
If you do not have online banking credentials, you can renew your application by filling in a new application, which will automatically replace the previous one.
The credit details of all applicants 18 or over will be checked in Suomen Asiakastieto Oy’s credit register before we make an offer for an apartment. We will also check the applicants’ information in the Finnish Population Register Center. On this page you can read more about the conditions for renting an apartment, about the upper limits for wealth, and how the credit details and population register information may affect the application.
We cannot estimate how long you may have to wait for an apartment. We can only offer apartments at the rate they become vacant when the previous tenant is moving out.
