Moving in

The keys

When the lease is signed, the tenant gets their personal set of keys. The keys fit the front door, the doors of the flat, the tenant’s own room, the storage, and the common facilities. The tenant must look after the keys well. If they loses a key, they will be charged for the cost of changing the locks. Lost keys must be reported to the office immediately.

Moving in date

Tenancy usually begins on the first day of the month, and you cannot move in before that. If the first day of tenancy is a Saturday, a Sunday or a holiday, the moving day is the next working day. The keys of the flat will be given to the tenant at our office during office hours.

The notice of removal

Upon moving out, the tenant must always give a notice of removal, required by the Population Register Law, to the Registry Office (Fi. ’maistraatti’) of Joensuu and, if necessary, a notice of change of address to the Post Office. Both notices can be given by telephone (Tel. +358 203 456 456), on the internet at or on a form to be returned to either the Post Office or the Registry Office.
