These are right-of-occupancy apartments – what does it mean?

  • Right-of-occupancy housing is a mix between rental and home ownership. It is an easy way to have an affordable, permanent home.
  • Right-of-occupancy dwellings are financed with state support.
  • When you sign a right-of-occupancy contract, you make a right-of-occupancy payment to Asuntosäätiö, which is only 15 % of the purchase value of the apartment. This is called the right-of-occupancy fee. In addition, you will pay a monthly residence charge, which is similar to rent, but lower than the market rent level.
  • A right-of-occupancy contract is accepted as collateral for a loan, and the interest on the loan is tax deductible. It is also possible to receive Kela’s housing allowance for living.
  • The apartment cannot be redeemed, but you have a permanent right to live in it. If you want to move out, the term of notice is three months. When you move out, your original right-of-occupancy fee will be returned to you, adjusted with the building cost index. 
  • You can apply for a right-of-occupancy apartment if you are over 18 years old. There is no income limit, but the condition for receiving a right-of-occupancy apartment is that you don't own a home of the size you need in the same area or don't have the means to purchase one. This wealth limit does not apply to people aged 55 and older. 
  • In order to obtain a right-of-occupancy apartment, you must hold a queue number for the application area. See instructions later on this page.
