Tenant must take personnel home insurance and presented the receipt as proof of the transaction. The tenancy agreement is made for a fixed term and is valid only when the tenant studies full-time.
The tenancy agreement is always made for a particular room, which means that the tenants are absolutely not allowed to change rooms without permission. Only persons who have signed a tenancy agreement are allowed to live in the apartment. If you notice that there are some "extra" tenants living in your apartment, report the matter immediately to the accommodation estate manager.
Relatives, friends or other people can not stay over night in the apartment.

they will charge 80 € for it.
New keys can be delivered only on weekdays, not on weekends or bank holidays.
NOTICE OF MOVING IN
New tenants make their notice of moving in on the Internet, at www.muuttoilmoitus.fi.
When you pick up the key you will receive an apartment card, which you will fill in at the apartment and return it within one week to the apartment supervisor, who signs it as received. You will get a copy of the card. If something needs urgent repair, you must also contact the maintenance about it.
Filling in the apartment card is to your own benefit, because you are financially responsible for the condition of your apartment as it is detailed in the apartment card.
PAYING THE RENT
The rent is paid in advance for each month, on the 6th day at the latest. Use the rent payment form sent to you by the Haaga Institute Foundation.
Please note that any changes of address or name made on the rent payment forms will not reach us, as the bank only forwards the reference numbers of payments.
If the rent has not been paid by the due date, the collection of the rent will be transferred to a collection agency, which charges collection costs and interest. The collection agency will send only one reminder of the payment. If the rent is not paid by the due date of the reminder, the collection agency will request a summons for collecting the rent from the district court. A district court decision for collecting the rent causes a default notice in the person's credit reference.

ACCOMMODATION IN SUMMER
Tenants must pay the rent also for the summer months in order to keep their rooms. If you terminate your tenancy in the spring you can apply for a room again in the autumn. However, new students take precedence when new tenants are chosen.
It is possible to rent the room to a subtenant for the summer months.
RENTING THE ROOM TO A SUBTENANT
When you rent your room to a subtenant for the summer, you should observe the following matters:
You are responsible for your subtenant to the Haaga-Perhon asunnot. You are the main tenant with the tenancy agreement and the summer tenant is your subtenant. Always make a written agreement with your summer tenant. This will help you legally if your subtenant fails to pay the rent or other payments. It is advisable for you to continue to pay your rent to the Haaga Institute Foundation using the payment form and to ask the summer tenant to pay the rent directly to your own bank account.
You must inform estate manager of your summer tenant's personal info, contact information and period of tenancy.
In shared apartments the summer tenant must be of the same sex with the other
One room cannot be rented for more than one person at a time.
TERMINATION OF TENANCY
The Act on Residential Leases will be applied in terminating the tenancy agreement. The period of notice is one calendar month.
For example: If you don't want to pay the rent for December, you must give the notice for terminating the tenancy agreement on the last day of October at the latest.
When the tenant graduates or ends his/her studies, they must give the notice so that the period of notice is one (1) month counting from the date of ending the studies. If the tenant does not give notice by this date, estate manager has the right to terminate the tenancy agreement so that it ends one (1) month after the tenant's studies have ended.
The tenancy agreement is terminated by filling in and returning the termination form given by estate manager (this is the preferred option) or by a free-form letter of termination. The free-form letter should include the following information: the address of the apartment and room that the tenancy agreement was made for, the day when the room is available for a new tenant (the first day of a month), date, signature, clarification of signature, the tenant's bank account number, telephone number, e-mail address, and the tenant's next address.
Please note that the rent is always paid for the whole month.
The apartment and room is always inspected when a tenant moves out. On the day of the inspection the apartment, including the common areas and the storage space, must be clean and emptied of the tenant's belongings (if they need to be emptied/cleaned, the costs will be charged from the tenant). The lamps, refrigerator, microwave and stove must be undamaged.
CLEANING THE APARTMENT
Before moving out, the tenant must do the following:
Sweep or vacuum the floors and wipe them with a damp cloth or mop.
Wipe the furniture clean.
Wipe/wash the walls clean.
The tenant is also responsible for the common areas of the apartment, which means that when a tenant moves out, it is advisable to make arrangements about cleaning the shared areas together. The last person to move out of the apartment is always responsible for the common areas.
STORAGE ROOM AND BALCONY
The tenant empties the storage room and balcony when moving out. If tenants leave any belongings in the apartment or storage space, they are removed and the costs are charged from the tenant.
