Termination of contract

How to give Notice of termination to Kuopas and what is it?

To end the tenancy contract with Kuopas, tenants with an open-ended contract must give Kuopas a Notice of termination at minimum one calendar month before they leave. Notice of termination is done by sending Kuopas the Notice of termination document. The notice time of one month is set to begin from the last day of the month in which the notice is given. Example: If you give your Notice of termination any day during January, the contract ends on the last day of February. This means that you also need to pay the rent of February.

If you have a Finnish bank account (and access to internet authentication), you can fill in the Notice of termination by using Electronical authentication here.

In the termination form we ask for your permission to give out your contact information, so that the next tenant can contact you and you can quickly show the apartment to them. We kindly ask that you accept this request, as it helps us and the next tenant greatly.

If you have made the contract together with your partner or your friend (=you applied with one application), you will both need to sign the Notice of termination for it to become valid. This is also a requirement in the Electronical authentication. You both will have to sign in to the service and separately end the contract. Otherwise the Notice of termination is not valid.

If you can’t use Electronical authentication, the signed Notice of termination document must be brought to Kuopas’ office or you can scan it and send it to us by email, with your signature. The notice must always be returned with a signature. You can also come to our Office during open hours to fill in the document, we have them here. If we are closed or you don’t want to wait, you can also always drop the document to a mailbox in our office door in Torikatu 15.

You can download the Notice of termination document here.

We kindly encourage you to give notice before the 15th of the month, so that we can plan the next month’s move-out inspections in time. This way we can make your move-out experience as comfortable as possible for you. If you want, you can also terminate the contract earlier, the one month notice time is the minimum.
