TERMINATION OF TENANCY AGREEMENT
The notice period of a tenancy agreement
that is valid until further notice is one
full calendar month.
The notice period starts from the last day of the month during which a Nuorisosäätiö's representative has received the notice of termination and ends on the last day of the subsequent month (for example, the notice period of an apartment for which notice has been given on 1 March will end on 30 April).
A fixed-term tenancy ends on the date indicated in the tenancy agreement.
The notice is not valid without a signature. If the tenancy agreement has been signed by two people and the apartment is about to be left unoccupied, both parties to the agreement have to give notice of their part of the tenancy agreement.
Proof of the notice rests with the tenant, in other words, the tenant is responsible for ensuring that the notice reaches the landlord. When submitting the notice, please note the opening hours of Nuorisosäätiö's office, since the notice has to be given by the last weekday of the month during the opening hours of the office.
NB: Postage stamp of a notice sent by post will not be taken into account! If you leave the notice to post for delivery on the last day of the month, the notice period will enter into force only when the letter is received by the landlord, in other words, next month.
How do I deliver the termination?
You have a few options:
- Send it by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Send or bring it to
Nuorisosäätiö's office, Hiihtäjäntie 7, 00810 Helsinki.
Confirmation of termination
When Nuorisosäätiö has received your notice of termination, you will receive a written confirmation and move instructions either by e-mail or regular post according to your preference. Keep the confirmation you received as a proof of you having given the notice.
In case, you have not received a confirmation of your notice, please contact immediately your building's renting service's housing secretary. Missing confirmation is usually a sign of Nuorisosäätiö not having received the written notice.
Showing the apartment
The tenant moving away has the
responsibility to show the apartment to prospective new tenants*.
The new tenant moving into your apartment may contact you. You must settle the date for showing the apartment between yourselves. If you are unable to show your apartment, the landlord's representative may do it on your behalf upon your request during office hours.
