Checklist for moving out

Are you leaving Jyrkkälä? Read the checklist below to make moving out easier. Thank you for the time you have enjoyed in Jyrkkälä – we wish you all the best!

Termination of rental contract

  • You can terminate your rental contract by filling out the termination form and submitting it to our office.

Keys

  • Try to plan your move well in advance of returning the keys. You should also consider the opening hours of the waste treatment centers and your own resources when moving.
  • When moving out of the apartment, the resident must return all the keys they have checked out to the office.
  • If any key is lost, the resident is obliged to pay for the lock serialization.
  • Keys can be returned to the office during its opening hours, or in the evening / on weekends in a sealed envelope in the office mailbox.

Home appliances and equipment

  • Instructions for the use and maintenance of household appliances and equipment must be left on the kitchen table.
  • The kitchen stove and cooker hood grease filter must be cleaned.
  • The refrigerator and freezer must be defrosted and switched off. Leave the refrigerator and freezer doors open to prevent odors.
  • Dishwashers and washing machines must be properly removed. The inlet water connections of the machines must be sealed and plugged with a suitable brass plug. The resident is responsible for water damage caused by improperly disconnected equipment. Please note that even if water doesn’t come out immediately after disconnection, the connection may still start to leak. Insurances often don’t cover this kind of damage. Property maintenance removes the machines on request free of charge.
  • Functioning fire alarms may be left in the apartment if you don’t want to take them with you.
  • If you are unsure of what equipment to leave or remove, contact KOy Jyrkkälänpolku’s office.

Moving day

  • During the move, be careful not to make a mess in the stairways. Don’t damage or smudge the walls when moving your belongings.
  • Don’t use the lift to transport items that may damage the lift. The weight limit of the lift must be taken into account.
  • If the lift is damaged during the move, the resident will be charged for the repair.
  • Keeping the lift doors open for too long may cause the lift to malfunction temporarily.

Cleaning

  • We advise you to set aside at least one day for cleaning the apartment. A well-planned move will save you money, since the apartment has been cleaned and emptied properly.
  • The resident must clean the apartment and empty the storage facilities of all their belongings and rubbish.
  • If the apartment has not been cleaned or any belongings have been left in the apartment or storage space, the cleaning and emptying will be charged separately.
  • Furniture etc. must not be left at the housing company’s waste points. Large waste must be disposed of in a landfill. The waste points are only meant for everyday household waste.
  • If you have attached mirrors or shelves to the walls, they must be removed. You don’t need to patch normal attachment marks on the walls. The property maintenance will fix the walls free of charge.
