Who can apply for a rental apartment?
Some of our apartments have a selection for resident. The selection is done based on the application (for example urgency of dwelling). There are also defined wealth and income limits depending on the municipality.
What is a right of residence?
A person moving into a right of residence flat makes a right of residence allowance of 15% which you will get back after you move out (adjusted by the index of the original residence allowance). The amount on the 15% is calculated from the total acquisition price of the flat. You will also pay a monthly rent which is lower than rent of a similar renting apartment in that area.
Here are few things about the right of residence (Asumisoikeus):
- there are restrictions for wealth, but not for incomes
- You need to apply the queue number of the town or municipal you wish to move in. You need to have your personal queue number, even though the apartment is vacant.
- You can apply the number from the housing office of the town or municipal you wish to move in.
What is Kotosalla?
Kotosalla apartments are designed for the elderly. Some of the apartments have a special selection criteria for resident (e.g. age, health and wealth). You also need to pay an extra fee for Kotosalla services in addition to your rent.
