Responsibilities of taking care of the apartment

Repairs and the work of Soihtu Facility Services both indoors and outdoors are Soihtu’s responsibility when they follow the usual wear and tear of the apartment. If the tenant or an outsider causes the need for the repairs or maintenance, the tenant has to pay for it. Our pricelist includes the expenses of the most common repairs charged from tenants. The assumption is that if you make changes to your apartment, you need to restore it when moving out.

Contact the Real Estate Manager if you want to remove any fixed furniture.

It is not allowed to use DC-FIX or similar sticky-backed plastic or mirrors in the apartment.

When you want to order an installation of a dishwasher, please contact the real estate manager well in advance before needed installation, so that the installation can be arranged with the plumber (at least 3-5 working days in advance).

All leakages must immediately be reported to Soihtu Facility Services by phone.
