Rental agreement

Tenant changes

If there is a change of tenants in the apartment, remember to always report this to Arcada Nova. Any changes to the agreement parties require a new contract.

Also, if a party to the agreement moves out it must also always be reported, otherwise the agreement will continue as the agreement parties’ shared responsibility and both parties are still responsible for the apartment and the payments. The change can only be reported by e-mail, so we can make a new agreement for the remaining party without any interruptions.

If a new child is born into your family, you can report this by e-mail. Subtenants need to be reported via a subletting agreement. See further information to the right of this page.

Subletting your apartment

You may sublease your apartment for a fixed period, if you e.g. leave the city because of reasons related to your studies, such as exchange studies or internships.

Note! Remote studying is not an acceptable reason for subleasing your apartment! The sub-tenant should be a full-time student, preferably in the Helsinki region.

During the summer months of June, July and August, a study-related reason for subletting your apartment is not necessary, however the subtenant should still be a full-time student.

In accordance with the rental agreement and the Act on Residential Leases, you need the permission of the landlord to sublease your apartment. Also, as a tenant you’re still responsible for the apartment and the rent payments even if you have a sub-tenant.

In order to get an approval for subleasing your apartment, you need to send the requested documentation to the landlord (Arcada Nova). A study certificate and documentation of income from the potential sub-tenant, as well as the agreement for the subleasing between the two parties. If the contract will be for a period outside the summer months, you’ll also need to show a certificate of your exchange/internship.

Remember to also share with your sub-tenant the general terms and conditions for rental agreements, as well as the general rules and other necessary user instructions.

The room is divided into three parts with two so called “study rooms”, and one larger room. The study rooms are perfect for either independent or group work.

Residential communication

All residential communication comes via the app One4all Mobile. The tenant must download the app to gain access to the residential communication, rescue plan, booking calendar for both sauna and clubroom.

The app is a flexible communication channel between the property management and the residents, but also a tool for reserving the sauna and various spaces.

The app also works via a web browser.

One4all Mobile works smoothly together with the digital information screen located in the stairwell.

Energy efficient & ecological accommodation

Sensible and economic accommodation does not mean that you should abandon comforts, rather that you use them correctly and appropriately.

You do not need to live in the dark and cold, but on the other hand, using electricity unnecessarily or regulating the temperature by keeping the windows open all the time is wasteful. In other words, avoid unnecessary use of electricity and water as well as unnecessary airing etc.

Rent payments

The due date for the rent is the 5th day of every month. The tenants receive their rent invoice only once for the entire year in the beginning of the rental period by mail or “oma-posti”. Use the right reference number when paying! You can also check your payments on your own account.

The rent’s due date cannot be postponed or changed and it is not possible to make a rent payment plan with Hanken’s Isabella. If the rent payment is late, the late payment interest and collection costs valid at the time will be charged from the tenant. Unpaid rent will be transferred to be collected. If rental payments remain unpaid, it may lead to the termination of the rental agreement and a credit data entry. Rental payments transferred to debt collection can no longer be negotiated with Hankens Isabella after they have been forwarded to debt collection process. Negotiations about a payment plan must be carried out with the debt collection operator. With regard to family apartments, both partners have a shared responsibility of the rent payments, also if one partner moves out of the apartment without terminating their agreement.

Other payments

In addition to rent, you may receive separate invoices related to, e.g. lost keys or sauna reservations. These invoices will be sent to you by mail.

Rent invoice

The rental invoice is sent by regular mail or “OmaPosti” if you have that service in use.

Electricity, water, internet and sauna shifts

Water and internet (10 Mbit) is included in the rent. The tenant has to sign their own electricity agreement. Sauna reservations are charged separately.

Hanken’s Isabella reserves the right to specify the rent in a manner that allows for charging water usage based on consumption.

Returning the security deposit

The security deposit will be returned to the tenant’s bank account entered to Tenant Pages about 4 weeks after the rental agreement has ended, if there are no issues concerning the tenant’s move. The bank account must be in the IBAN format, and if you have a foreign bank account, you should also report the BIC code. If you do not have an IBAN bank account, enter your account number, name of the account holder, the bank’s name and address and the bank’s SWIFT code. The tenant is responsible for the accuracy of these data.

Moving inspection

After the rental agreement has ended or when the tenant has notified that the apartment is empty, an inspection of the apartment will take place. The inspection is usually carried out with a master key, between 8:00-16:00, and the visit does not need to be agreed on separately with the inspector nor does the tenant need to be present. The apartment must be empty and cleaned for the inspection. If you have a pet or you do not agree to the use of a master key for some other reason, you can make an appointment for the inspection with the landlord.

If you have given permission to inspect your apartment using a master key but prevent the inspector accessing the apartment, or if you have agreed on a time for the visit but are not present at the agreed time, an invoice for € 35 will be sent to you due to the unnecessary inspection visit.

During the inspection the apartment’s renovation needs will be reviewed. The apartment’s cleanliness level will also be inspected. The inspection report reflects the situation at the moment of the inspection. The tenant is obliged to take good care of the apartment until the end of their rental agreement and they must do the final cleaning.
