Renovating and maintaining right-of-occupancy homes
We want to keep our apartments in good condition and ensure as carefree living as possible in them. Building management and maintenance see to the upkeep of the building and premises. You can also have an impact on the comfort of your home through regular maintenance and care, alterations and renovations.
Building management and maintenance
Our technical property managers handle the regular inspections of right-of-occupancy homes and plan any required repairs. They also prepare long-term repair plans for the property.
The maintenance company sees to the safety and cleanliness of the building and its premises. They also help you if, for example, you have a leaking faucet, your radiator needs to be checked or you have forgotten your key inside the apartment.
You can also submit a fault report to the Service Center (phone +358 9 4246 9333). The Service Centre is available 24/7 and there is no service charge for the call.
Instructions for renovations and alterations in right-of-occupancy homes
You can renovate your right-of-occupancy home to reflect your own preferences. You must cover the costs of the renovation yourself, but you may be refunded for the alterations later if you move out of your home.
All alterations must be carried out according to our instructions, and you must either submit a notification or apply for separate permission, depending on the type of work.
Home maintenance tasks that the residents are responsible of
We ensure that our right-of-occupancy homes are regularly maintained. In addition, all residents are expected to take good care of their home so that the apartments remain in good condition. You can check the shared responsibilities table to see which household maintenance tasks are your responsibility and which of them belong to Asuntosäätiö.
Things like replacing light bulbs and emptying and cleaning floor drains are the resident’s responsibility. The servicing of the resident’s own equipment, such as a washing machine, is also the resident’s responsibility. However, bleeding a radiator, opening blocked drains and repairing faucets and refrigerators are the responsibility of Asuntosäätiö.
