Application for housing


Print out the application form and bring the filled form to Nikkarinkruunu’s office or move to electronic application (only in Finnish). 

Tenant selections are made in accordance with the laws and decisions of the government. Most of our apartments are ARA-apartments, so priority is given to those applicants who need the apartment most of all.  In these apartments we use assets limits, if the applicant doesn’t fit in these limits, we can’t accept applicant as tenant. 

Number of persons Assets limit
1 60 500€
2 77 000 €
3 99 000 €
4 121 000 €

If the size of household increases the assets limit raises 5 500€ per person.

Assets = market value – debts directed to assets

Fill in the application accurately, insufficient applications we cannot process.

Credit ratings are checked from all applicants over 18 years.  Bad credit history is not a direct obstacle to receive an apartment. However, the applicant’s unpaid rent debt to us or the previous landlord prevents the offer of the apartment.

The application is valid for three (3) months, you can activate it again by calling to our office, telephone 020 331 311 or by e-mail .​

During the validity of your application don’t forget to inform us if you get an apartment from elsewhere.

Please remember to notify us if there is any changes in your application e.g. address, salary, phone number etc.

Security deposits

There is a security deposit payment in use, which equals to 1-3 months rent.

The security deposit will be refunded to the tenant when tenancy ends, if there have not been any problems with rent payments and the apartment has been well managed.
