Reporting resident changes

During the tenancy, the situation of the tenant might change in many ways: moving in with your partner, having a child, breaking up, child moving out and other events are a part of life.

When more people move into the apartment or someone moves out, the tenant must inform Soihtu about it. Soihtu as the landlord needs to have the information on those living its apartments for these reasons, for example:

You can submit information on the persons moving in or out of the apartment via the online notice form.

If necessary, the tenancy agreement can be changed, too. When your partner moves into your apartment, a new, joint tenancy agreement can be made for the two of you. Also, when breaking up, a new tenancy agreement can be made for the person staying in the apartment while the other one moves out. A service fee will be charged according to our price list for the change.

Do this when you need a change in your tenancy agreement:

  1. Fill in the apartment application with the information of that person/those persons who are staying in the apartment after the change. In additional information field, write that you want the tenancy agreement to be changed.
  2. Terminate your current tenancy agreement. Write there or in a separate email to Soihtu Housing, that you want the tenancy agreement to be changed.
  3. After Soihtu has processed your notice of termination, you will get an apartment offer. Accept the offer according to the instructions on the offer email.
  4. After accepting the offer, you will receive an email including your new tenancy agreement to be signed as well as a new rent invoice including the service fee.
  5. After signing the tenancy agreement, everything’s ok. You can ignore any emails regarding moving out and returning the keys.

These instructions were about adding or removing residents from the apartment you have rented from Soihtu.
