Why choose a rental apartment?

A rental apartment is an easy and flexible solution when choosing a home. As a renter, you do not need to worry about renovations, shareholder meetings or other operations that burden apartment owners. When you rent, your funds are not tied to an apartment. Furthermore, if you have to move to another city, it’s easy to leave a rental apartment and find a new one. Rental apartments are in high demand, especially in urban growth areas.

Avara believes in good rental living

Enjoyable living is taking other residents into consideration and treating the property of others with care as if it were your own. Each and every one of us can make rental living more pleasant through our own actions. We encourage you to take responsibility and explain to children and visitors how they should behave in the shared spaces and the yard, as well as to be a positive example for others. Who wouldn’t enjoy a cozy and clean yard?

Make sure to learn about what you are liable for as a renter. The customer service at your housing management company will help you with liability questions, including finding out who is responsible for repairs. You can also see the resident’s guidebook (Asukkaan opas in Finnish) from the resident’s services section on our website. The guidebook explains the distribution of liabilities in Avara’s rental apartments.
