End of tenancy cleaning and emptying of the apartment

The resident must empty and clean the apartment prior to the end of the rental contract. Any storage facility provided with the apartment must also be emptied, and any bikes or other equipment the tenant is storing in these facilities must be removed from the common storage areas when the tenant moves out. No furniture, domestic appliances, exercise equipment or other such items may be left at the household waste collection point. Any items that you do not want to take with you should be taken to HSY Sortti Stations or Recycling Points.

If you have not completely emptied and cleaned the apartment and emptied the storage facility when moving out, the landlord will carry out any necessary work and you will be invoiced for the costs incurred. Instructions on end of tenancy cleaning will be provided when termination of the contract is confirmed.
