Storage locks with deposit fee won’t be used in the future
Tenants of Soihtu’s residential buildings have access to apartment-specific storage boxes (except for buildings M, N, O and P). The storage boxes have before had Soihtu’s locks, for which the tenant has paid a lock deposit (Kortepohja Student Village buildings A, B, C, F, R, S and T and Soihtu Vehkakuja).
Nowadays, a tenant can use their apartment-specific storage room with their own lock.
A tenant who has had a storage box in use before (before the beginning of August 2021) and has thus paid a lock deposit to Soihtu will be refunded the deposit fee. We will start refunding the lock deposits in October 2021, but the request to refund the lock deposit can be made any day. If a tenant moves out before the end of October, the lock deposit will be refunded with the apartment deposit. If a tenant wishes to keep the lock with the keys, they will be charged 5 € from the deposit. If a tenant returns the lock with the keys (2 pcs) to the Soihtu Housing service point, we will refund the lock deposit in full. The lock deposits will only be refunded to those tenants who have informed us their bank account information.
Soihtu aims for a new building in Kortepohja Student Village to serve e.g. students’ families. The new building will be placed along the Kartanonkuja street, between buildings Q and E. Provided that the new site of Soihtu receives a building permit from the city of Jyväskylä and a start permit from Ara, construction can begin in late autumn 2023.
Tenants of Soihtu receive a newsletter about the current housing topics in Kortepohja Student Village, Soihtu Vehkakuja and Soihtu Korttelikylä every month. The newsletter is sent to the e-mail address found in our system and provided by the...
