Temporarily assigning an apartment to someone else

You can temporarily assign your apartment to another person for a fixed period of up to 24 months, if you are staying in another city due to studies, work, illness or other similar reason. Sign a written agreement with the person you are assigning your apartment to. The agreement is between the two of you, and the landlord (JYY, Soihtu) is not involved. The agreement must always be for a fixed period.

Temporarily assigning an apartment to another person means that you are temporarily moving to another location, and another person will occupy your apartment.

Our customer service must be notified about assigning the apartment to someone else in a written format. Fill in the form of assigning the apartment to someone else and sign a written agreement with your tenant. Submit both the form and a copy of the agreement to our customer service before the tenancy begins (no later than 7 days prior the start date). Without this information, we will not be able to for instance open the door for them if they forget or lose their key.

Please note:

Please note that if you lease a part of your apartment to someone else, while you still live in the same apartment yourself, legally you are subleasing the apartment, not temporarily assigning the complete apartment to someone else’s use.
