Payment of rent

The due date for rent payment is always the second business day of the month. The rent is paid with an apartment-specific reference number, which is shown on the invoice. If the reference number can’t be used for some reason, the name and address of the tenant has to be notified in the message field of bank transfer.

In case you have any questions or problems in relation to the payment of rent, please contact the rent supervision department at NAL Asunnot, by email (vuokravalvonta@nalasunnot.fi) or by phone (09 7745 3616, Monday to Friday from 12:00pm to 2pm).

Disturbances

Everyone has the right to undisturbed housing and domestic peace. It is not allowed to disturb the neighbors in the apartment or the public area. In particular between 10.00 p.m. and 7.00 a.m. making noise should be avoided. Loud noise is not allowed at other times of the day either.

To ensure the safety and comfort of everyone, each tenant must comply with the same building rules and regulations.

The tenants must also make sure that their guests follow the rules. Breaking the rules may lead to liability to compensate for damages or the eviction of a tenant.

If your neighbor disturbs you, try first to solve the situation with them. If needed, call the police. If the disturbances continue, make a disturbance notification to the Property Manager by e-mail (isannoitsija@nalasunnot.fi). Only written complaints can be addressed. Please write to the message:

  • your name, address and contact details
  • your neighbour’s name and the number of the apartment
  • describe what has happened and when.

Your complaint will be handled confidentially.
