Etusivu For Tenants Moving in checklist Moving in checklist This is a list of things you need to do when moving into a rented property. Tick off the items as you complete them. The tasks in the list are not in chronological order. Notify your change of address to the Population Register Centre, the Local Register Office and Posti. You can notify your change of address online at http://www.posti.fi/changeaddress/. A notification of change of address can also be made by completing a form at a post office or Local Register Office. Notify the building manager of the housing company about the change of tenant. You can find the contact information of the building manager or maintenance company on the housing company's notice board and the building manager's certificate. Make an electricity agreement with the electricity provider of your choice if this is your responsibility according to the terms and conditions of your tenancy agreement. Make a gas agreement with Gasum tel. +358 (0)800 122 722 if the property has a gas cooker. Update the invoicing information of your water agreement and make a waste management agreement; only for detached houses. Transfer or make a new contract with an internet provider. Notify your change of address to your banks, insurance companies, magazine subscriptions, associations, libraries, telephone companies and friends and family Taking out a home insurance policy: You can take out a home insurance policy with the insurance company of your choice. Send a copy of the insurance decision or certificate directly to your landlord by post or email. In tenancy agreements the landlord requires the tenant to be covered by a valid home insurance for the duration of the tenancy. You can check the home insurance condition of your tenancy agreement (under item "Other rental terms and additional information"). Usually the requirement is for the tenant to commit to taking out and keeping a home insurance policy with liability insurance. Delivering the security deposit to Vuokraturva: Deliver to Vuokraturva a receipt proving that you have paid the security deposit before picking up the keys. If you will pick up the keys from a Vuokraturva office, you can bring the receipt with you then. Please note that we are unable to hand over keys without a receipt. An accepted receipt is e.g. a print-out of a confirmed online payment or the bank's original security deposit account lien commitment, depending on the payment method of the security deposit in your tenancy agreement. You can check the security deposit payment method from your tenancy agreement under "Collateral". If the payment method of the security deposit is a security deposit account opened in a bank, please note that we are unable to accept a lien commitment that has erroneous or missing information. Check before leaving the bank that the information is correct. Vuokraturva can provide you with written instructions on how to open a security deposit account, which also includes a checklist for ensuring that the lien commitment information is correct in the bank. Picking up the keys: You can pick up the keys to the property starting from the moving day from your area's Vuokraturva office unless you have agreed otherwise with our agent. Opening hours and addresses of our offices>> Note! In the Greater Helsinki region, tenants need to book an appointment for collecting the keys. You will receive instructions on how to book an appointment by email along with your tenancy agreement. You might find spare keys in the property left by the previous tenant. If you need e.g. a spare key and don't find one in the property, please contact the landlord directly. Start rent payments into the landlord's account: Separate invoices are generally not sent for rent payments. Usually both rent and possible water fee are paid as a lump sum into the landlord's account in accordance with information given in the tenancy agreement. You can check information on rent payments and the rent payment day from your tenancy agreement (under item "Rental terms"). Check the account number of your landlord in your tenancy agreement under "Lessor information". Write the full address of the rented property in the message field of the bank transfer. If a reference number has been given in the tenancy agreement, use it whenever you pay rent. A possible parking place mentioned in the tenancy agreement shall always be paid into the landlord's agreement unless otherwise agreed in the tenancy agreement. Laundry room and sauna fees and parking spaces separately reserved from the housing company are usually paid directly to the housing company. You will receive a separate electricity bill from your electricity company based on your electricity agreement unless otherwise agreed in the tenancy agreement.
