Rules and regulations of Kalajoen Vuokra-asunnot real estate company

These rules and regulations include rules that enhance the tenants’ comfort, health, domestic privacy and safety. They are the housing association’s common “rules of the game” that the tenants must adhere to. In addition to what is ruled by laws, regulations, articles of association, the municipality’s rules and regulations and a possible rental agreement, these rules and regulations have been approved for this housing association for the safety of the tenants.

All tenants must consider other tenants in all of their conduct, and no one must intentionally disturb the comfort of living of others. It is the duty of every tenant to familiarise themselves with the rules and regulations, comply with them and make sure that their family and guests comply with them. The tenants must adhere to manners that ensure normal domestic privacy for everyone.

Common facilities

When passing through locked exterior doors, make sure that they lock behind you. Common facilities are to be used without causing extra noise, and unnecessary loitering in them is forbidden. For fire security reasons any belongings must only be stored in storage areas reserved for them, and not in the stairway. The common facilities are meant for the tenants’ use only and must be kept clean. Smoking is not allowed in any circumstances.
