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.

Inform your bank account number for refunding the lock deposit.
