Apply for an apartment

If you need an apartment, send us an application. In your application, select all of the apartment blocks that have an apartment you are interested in. Your application can include apartment blocks that do not currently have vacant or upcoming vacant apartments. We offer vacant apartments primarily to people who have already submitted a housing application. Remember that the situation as regards vacant housing can change rapidly.

We check your credit status before offering you housing. Payment defaults in credit records are not an automatic barrier to being offered a home. Unpaid rent, repeated failures to make payments and/or large debts can negatively affect your access to housing.

Are you aware that you can notify Asiakastieto if the debt that adversely affected your credit rating has been settled. You can improve your credit rating status by sending Asiakastieto a document stating that you have paid the debt. Report any such payment to Asiakastieto so that credit rating reviewer will see that the problem has been resolved.

Settlement Apartments Ltd undertakes to process personal and credit information provided on application forms or at a subsequent date in the manner required by the Data Protection Act (Act 1050/2018).
