Moving in

How do I get the keys?

You will receive the keys from the maintenance company on the date of surrendering the possession of the apartment once you have signed the right-of-occupancy contract and paid the right-of-occupancy payment and security deposit and any separately agreed alterations. Please bring your ID with you, along with receipts that show you have paid the right-of-occupancy payment and security deposit!

Please take good care of your keys throughout your stay. If your keys are missing when you move out, the locks will always need to be re-serialised. If you need additional keys, please order them from your property manager.

What notifications should I make when I move?

There are three notifications.

  1. Submit a new resident’s move-in notification to the maintenance company when picking up the keys. Submit a move-in notification for all the people moving into the apartment so that you can be entered in the house book. This is also a prerequisite for opening the apartment door for you in case you forget your keys at home.
  2. Remember to make the statutory notification of move at muuttoilmoitus.fi. The information is updated both for Posti and the Population Information System. If you want to use a paper notification form, you can use either the Posti service point or the service point of the  Digital and Population Data Services Agency.
  3. Complete the electronic housing inspection form for new residents at avainasunnot.fi/en/for-residents/submit-a-fault-notification/, select Apartment Inspection Form from the service request topic menu. Use the form to report any defects/deficiencies/need for cleaning in the apartment or indicate that everything is in order. Take photos of the problems and attach them to the form. Use the Submit button to send the form to the home inspector for information/to request action.

Remember to update your address also for your bank, insurance company, credit card company, library, companies whose services you use regularly, associations and clubs, and friends and relatives.

Which contracts do I need?

  1. You must have comprehensive insurance that covers the entire apartment, including liability insurance, and is valid throughout your residence.
  2. Your electricity contract must be valid from the start of your right-of-occupancy contract until its end.

How do I implement the housing company’s broadband?

Almost all of Avain apartments have an internet connection included in the residence charge. The operators vary by region. You can implement the broadband connection by following the operating instructions your received with the contract. Check with the operator which devices you need to connect. If you need to buy new devices (for example, a modem), you pay for them yourself. heck out your housing company’s operator’s instructions and the low-cost additional speeds offered: dna.fi/avain, elisa.fi/avain or telia.fi/avain.

How can I get a parking space for my car?

lease contact the maintenance company to enquire about parking. The number of parking spaces varies by property. If your building does not have enough parking spaces for everyone, there is a waiting list. A rental agreement is made for the parking space, and you receive the key for the possible heat socket or parking garage at the same time.

If there are parking spaces available, you can even get two spaces. However, please note that you may need to give up your second parking space if a resident moves into the building and wants to rent their first parking space.

How do I book a sauna or laundry room?

Ask the maintenance company for available sauna times.
You can book a laundry room or a drying room using the list in the room or the booking board. If your house has an electronic reservation system, the instructions for using it can be found in the resident folder and in the Kotiavain resident app.
