A shared apartment is like a small community where the rules are created jointly.
Each tenant has responsibility for the shared apartment, which also means another tenant`s negligence does not give you the right to neglect your responsibilities.
All tenants in a shared apartment must do their share in keeping the kitchen, hall, toilet and bathroom clean. You must also respect another tenant’s property.
When partying and guests are invited, please take into account the comfort of your roommates and neighbours; please respect their need to study and live in peace. You should give your neighbours notice in advance of any parties.
Notice that there has to be silence in Kuopas’ buildings from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.
If your peace has been disturbed
First try to talk about matters with the parties involved. If the disturbances continue, you can make a written complaint to the Kuopas housing office. Please, use the disturbance notice form. Your complaint is handled confidentially. After this, matters are handled as per the laws governing rental of residences.
In most cases the differences can be dealt with by conversation. Notify the person disturbing you either by a personal visit or putting a note to their mail box.
