Paying the Rent
The rent must be paid according to the lease agreement by the 5th day of the month. Pay the rent according to the payment specification you received and use the reference number mentioned in the payment specification.
The due date of the rent can't be transferred or changed in any circumstances. If the rent is delayed for one reason or another, the late payment will bear late payment interest from the due date. So you should pay the delayed rent as soon as possible to minimize your costs.
In addition to the rent, the tenant pays a water fee charged according to the number of people living in the apartment. The amount of the water fee varies between 19-28 € per person / month (in most of the properties the water fee is 23 € / person / month). Alternative and separate monthly fees are sauna and parking fees.
Nuorisosäätiö's collections has been transferred to Svea Perintä. So in the event of late rent payment, the tenant will be contacted by Svea. If you have received a letter from Svea, follow the instructions you have received and pay the bill by the due date and use the reference number and details of the bill. If you have any questions (payment plan, amount of debt questions etc.) please contact Svea:

Rules and Regulations
Tenants must follow the rules and regulations of Nuorisosäätiö. Tenants are held responsible and liable for any damages and neglects not only by themselves but also by their guests. Residents must behave in a way that shows consideration towards the neighbours.
The night-time peace is from 22:00 to 07:00, during this time all the residents and their guests must avoid any kind of noise or disturbance in the apartments and common areas.
All the residents are responsible for familiarising themselves with the rules and regulations. If a tenant or his/her guests violates any of the rules and regulations, tenant may be obliged to pay damages, may get a warning notice and/or may result in the termination of the lease agreement.
Changes in Housing
Do you still have the same persons living in your apartment as at the beginning of the lease or would it be time to update the information? All changes in housing registry must be reported to Nuorisosäätiö as soon as possible. You can inform us about the new resident (s) or new situation by filling the appropriate form below:
Flatmate, Partner or Child:
When a new person moves into the apartment with you as a flatemate, partner or forexample incase of a new born child, please fill out the Tenancy Notification electronic form carefully . The new resident will not become a tenant to the rental contract, but the lease will remain on behalf of the main tenant. Once we have approved the Tenancy Notification, the person will be added to the register of occupants and we will send a new rental invoice with the new water fee information.
If you want the name of the new resident on the door and the staircase tenant's board, please report it by filling an electronic fault report. Select "Nimenvaihtoilmoitus" and write the surname of the new resident in the text field. The resident can live in the apartment for as long as the main tenant's contract is valid.
It is advisable to make a written sublease agreement with the flatmate/partner, where you both agree on the terms of your rental agreement. The main tenant is ultimately responsible for paying the rent and the condition of the apartment. The sublease agreement is important, especially if you apply for housing support from Kela, for example.
Subleasing means renting the whole apartment to another person. You can rent your apartment for maximum two years. Approval for subleasing requires moving out of your place of residence and in the Helsinki metropolitan area it requires moving out of the metropolitan area. After approval, the main tenant is advised to sign a rental agreement with the person who moves to the apartment.
Renting does not affect the main tenant's lease and the main tenant is ultimately responsible for paying the rent and the condition of the apartment.
