Longer absence from the apartment

According to the law, the tenant is obliged to notify the landlord of a longer absence. Therefore, kindly notify Soihtu Housing service point if you know you will be away from the apartment for more than two months.

Please note that reporting absence does not remove the tenant’s responsibility for the apartment. Before leaving the apartment, you should always close the faucets and check that the fire alarm is working. Defrosting the refrigerator and freezer is also recommended if you will be away longer.

Please note that after being away for more than a month, the drains in the apartment may dry up and cause unpleasant odors. We therefore recommend, if possible, to visit the apartment at least once a month to drain water in the drains. Careful cleaning of the drains before your absence may also prevent odor problems.

We also recommend that you check the terms of your own home insurance policy in case something happens to your apartment while you are away.
