ikoni liittyen asunnonhaun ohjeisiin

1. Explore terms and conditions, homes available, landlords and residential areas

We offer non-subsidised housing for applicants with a sound credit rating and regular income sufficient for paying the rent. No urgency levels or wealth limits are applied to the resident selection of non-subsidised housing.

Start your search by exploring vacant apartments on Vuokraovi or Oikotie. We also recommend that you familiarise yourself with different landlords, frequently asked questions and residential areas in advance.

2. Fill out an application

Once you have selected the apartment you want to apply for from Vuokraovi or Oikotie, leave the information of the selected apartment in the browser or take up the information of the apartment (address, area and rent). You will need the information of the apartment when completing the application.

Fill out an application for non-subsidised apartment. You can apply for more than one apartment at a time. We recommend adding a personal email address that only you use to your application.

After submitting your application, you (and a possible accompanying applicant) will receive an email confirming receipt of the application. Please note that you (and your possible accompanying applicant) must verify the application through strong authentication with online bank identifiers or a mobile certificate so that your application will be included in the tenant selection process.

If you (or your possible accompanying applicant) are unable to verify your identity electronically, you can do so by visiting the rental apartment search customer service and verifying your identity using an official personal identity document (driving licence, passport or personal ID card). You will need a personal email address for verification and registration to be able to verify your identity at the customer service.

Once you have verified your application, it will be included in the tenant selection process. The application is valid for three (3) months. If you amend your application or submit a new one, it will replace your previous application.

3. Make changes to your application or withdraw it, if necessary 

If your situation or your preferences change, you can modify your application via the rental apartment search service. Please note that only you can modify the details in your application, not our housing advisers.

After being modified, your application will be valid for another three months. If your application has expired, you can submit a new application.

4. Accepting a housing offer 

If you are selected as a resident, you will receive a housing offer by e-mail and SMS. 

When necessary, we ask applicants to provide us with a residence permit for at least 12 months or a certificate of registration.  

Viewing the apartment and signing a lease agreement 

With the housing offer, you will receive the landlord’s contact information so that you can arrange for viewing the apartment and signing a lease agreement. You have three (3) weekdays to learn more about the apartment and decide whether to accept it or not.
