Welcome to Avain

Read our moving in instructions.

Moving in

How do I get the keys?

You will receive the keys from the maintenance company 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 need to be re-serialised. If you need additional keys, always order them from your property manager.

What notifications should I make when I move?

There are three notifications.

  1. Please submit the moving in notification of a new resident to the maintenance company no later than one week after the change, so that you are entered in the house register. This is also a prerequisite for opening the apartment door for you in case you forget the 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/asukkaalle/jata-vikailmoitus, select Housing Inspection Form from the service request topic menu. Use the for to report any defects/deficiencies in the apartment or indicate that everything is in order. 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 broadband of the housing company?

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.

You can check the validity of the benefit and the operator for your house in the property information via the  housing search. Operators provide more information about the available connections, speeds and technology. > DNAElisa

How can I get a parking space for my car?

Please contact the maintenance company to enquire about parking. The number of parking spaces varies by property. If your house 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 house 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 on the resident website.
