Home exchanger's benefits
1. No rent for two homes at the same time
Moving dates and notice periods are negotiable for residents who move from one Lumo home to another after living in a Lumo home for six months or more. Lumo movers don’t need to get caught between two apartments and pay rent for two homes at the same time, unless you specifically want to have both homes for a period of time to make the moving process easier, for example. Also remember to terminate the tenancy agreement of your current apartment and mention on the notice of termination that you are moving to another Lumo home.
Matters related to the security deposit and the rent payment are always agreed upon on a case-by-case basis. Also keep in mind that apartments rented via the Lumo webstore do not require a security deposit at all. You only need to pay a reservation fee of €350 and the apartment is yours! The reservation fee is part of the first month’s rent.

2. Set up a search alert in the webstore
If you are looking for a new home, you should start by visiting the Lumo webstore: what you are looking for might be just one click away. If you can’t find a vacant apartment that matches your wishes, set up a search alert. The system will send you an e-mail notification as soon as homes matching your criteria become available.
If you are looking for a new Lumo home by submitting a normal application for an apartment, remember to mention that you are already a Lumo resident.
4. Let Key Courier do the footwork for you
Moving is always a hectic time – sometimes you feel like you need to be in many places at the same time. The Key Courier service helps with this. You can use the Key Courier service to have the keys to your new home delivered to you, or pick up the keys to your old home and have them delivered to an address of your choice.
The Key Courier service is only available in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area, Turku and Tampere for the time being.
5. Get a professional to do your moving-out cleaning for you
The process of moving is easier when you get a professional to do the moving-out cleaning of your old apartment. In addition to floors and other surfaces, the cleaning service includes the cleaning of doors, door frames, cabinets, stove, refrigerator and radiators as well as bathrooms, toilets, sauna and the storage facilities for movable property. The moving-out cleaning service is only available in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area for the time being.
