The deposit is a guarantee that the tenant fulfils their obligations and takes good care of their apartment. Once the lease has ended, TYS can use the deposit to compensate for any damages caused by the tenant or extra costs arising, for example, from cleaning up after the tenant, without discussing the matter separately with the tenant.
When moving in
The deposit is €300/€450 (depending on the type of apartment) The payment information for the deposit will be attached to the housing offer. The deposit must be paid before signing the lease.
If you apply for a Kela payment guarantee to pay the deposit, ask Kela to deliver the payment guarantee directly to TYS in a protected e-mail to the address firstname.lastname@example.org, or deliver the document (the separate document for the payment guarantee) personally to the Housing Office.
If you already live in a TYS apartment, and you are moving into another apartment, meaning an internal transfer, the deposit can be transferred to your new lease (if the new apartment requires a greater deposit, you will be requested to pay the additional deposit with the housing offer).
When moving out
The deposit will be returned to the tenant approximately 4 weeks after the lease has ended, unless there are issues to be clarified. Further information: entering account information on the tenant pages. Please note that foreign banks may charge additional fees for returning the deposit.
A fixed-term lease for less than a year
An admission fee of €60 is charged for fixed-term leases whose duration is less than 12 months and that have been made in advance. This payment will be invoiced separately after the housing offer has been approved.
Internal transfer to another TYS apartment
When the tenant moves into another TYS apartment in an internal transfer, a transfer fee of €34 is charged. This payment will be invoiced separately after the housing offer has been approved.
Fee for canceling the lease
If the tenant cancels their lease, they may be charged a canceling fee of €60. Similarly, if the tenant cancels their termination of the lease after the termination has been confirmed, a canceling fee of €60 is charged. This payment will be invoiced separately.
