Apply for a queue number
You need a queue number to apply for a right-of-occupancy dwelling. From the beginning of September 2023, the numbers are applied from the the Housing Finance and Development Centre of Finland (ARA). The new numbers will be valid for two years and you can use them to apply for a right-of-occupancy dwelling in the whole country.
During the time of 1.9–31.12.2023 you can apply for a right-of-occupancy dwelling using both old and new numbers. The old numbers applied from the communities will have priority in tenant selection until the end of 2023.
Apply for housing
Once you have a queue number, you can apply for a right-of-occupancy dwelling. Get acquainted with the companies or associations owning right-of-occupancy dwellings and submit an application directly on the companies’ websites.
The companies or associations owning right-of-occupancy dwellings grant right-of-occupancy dwellings to applicants and confirm the right-of-occupancy fees to be refunded.
