Exchange student – departure

We hope you have enjoyed your stay in Kortepohja! There are a few things you need to take care of before you leave.

1. Check your rent payments

Make sure you have paid all your rents before leaving. Even if you leave before the ending date of your tenancy agreement, you have a responsibility to pay your rent until the end of the last month of your agreement. Basically, this means that if your agreement is valid until the end of May and whatever your leaving date is, you have to pay the rent of May before you leave. If you don’t take care of the payments on time, you also need to pay the debt collection costs. Therefore, it’s very important that you pay your rents on time.

2. Clean your apartment

It’s super important that you clean your room/apartment before you move out. In shared apartments the shared spaces must also be tidied up every time a roommate moves out – even if it’s only one person moving. When Soihtu Facility services come to check the apartment, they will also check the cleanliness of the shared spaces. If they discover a messy apartment, Soihtu has the right to have the flat cleaned up by professionals. The costs will be charged from the tenant/s. 

3. Return the keys

Return all your keys to Soihtu Housing service point (address is Vehkakuja 2 B). Please return the keys at latest by 12 noon on the working day that follows the last day of your tenancy agreement. If the service point is closed when you’re leaving, put your keys in an envelope and leave it to the mailbox on the right side of the front door in Vehkakuja 2 B. Under any circumstances DO NOT leave your keys in the apartment or in the mailbox of Rentukka.

It is a tenant’s responsibility to take care that the keys are returned to the Soihtu Housing service point in time. If a friend is returning your keys for you, make sure that they know they’re going to the right place. If the keys are returned late or to a wrong place, unfortunately we’ll have to charge you according to the price list for damages and services.

4. Apartment inspection is done by Soihtu Facility Services

The condition of your apartment will be checked the day after the keys are returned. Inspections won’t be made during weekends. Soihtu Facility services will see if anything has been broken and that the apartment has been cleaned up properly. They will also make sure that all the furniture is okay. You don’t need to book the inspection, it will happen automatically after the keys are returned.
