What should I do if I lose my keys?

Report it immediately to our customer service info@kajaaninpietari.fi or call 08 615 52 060 (Mon-Fri 9:00-14:00). The cost of changing the locks will be charged to you. If you wish to have extra key, you can order an additional key at your own expense. When you vacate the apartment, you must return the same number of keys as you received when you moved in. You can also request additional keys during your stay, but all keys must be returned upon moving out.

Can the start date of the lease be changed?

If you have not yet signed the lease, we can negotiate the start date. However, once it is signed, the start date is binding.

When and where can I pick up the keys?

Vuokrasopimuksen alkaessa voit noutaa ne toimistolta kuittausta vastaan. Valtakirjalla voit valtuuttaa toisen henkilön, mutta noutajan henkilöllisyys tunnistetaan (otettava mukaan virallinen henkilötodistus, voimassa oleva ajokortti tai passi).At the start of the lease, you can pick them up from the office against a receipt. You can authorize another person with a power of attorney, but the person collecting the keys must be identified (bring an official ID, a valid driver’s license, or a passport). Check our office’s opening hours from our website.

How do I terminate the lease agreement?

The lease must always be terminated in writing. There is a termination form on the website and/or you can visit our office. If the office is closed, you can return the termination form to the mailbox at the office entrance.

What is the end date of the lease?

The lease agreement ends on the last day of the month following the notice of termination. The notice period is one (1) calendar month. The moving-out day is the same as the lease end date.

Can I hang pictures on the walls of the rented apartment? Will the maintenance man install the washing machine during the move?

You can hang pictures on the walls, but large mounting marks must be repaired when moving out. Only an authorized, skilled technician can connect the washing machine. We recommend taking out home insurance when you move into the apartment.
