Subletting your apartment (for a fixed period) is allowed in the following situations:
- Exchange studies
- During the summer months (June, July & August)
The subtenant must be a student of age (18). If you sublease your apartment outside the summer months, the subtenant should be a student in the Helsinki region.
Please note! Remote studying is not an acceptable reason for subleasing your apartment.
In accordance with the rental agreement and the Act on Residential Leases, you need the permission of the landlord to sublease your apartment. However, as the primary tenant you’re still responsible for the apartment and the rent payments even if you are subleasing the apartment.
