Lumo webstore terms of contract for renting an apartment directly through the webstore
Lumo webstore terms of contract
Renting an apartment directly through the Lumo webstore is always a binding act. The lease you sign in the service is a fixed-term agreement for a period of six (6) months. You can also sign a fixed-term agreement of three (3) months, which makes the rent slightly higher. Newly constructed properties usually have a twelve (12) month fixed-term agreement. If both parties wish to extend the tenancy relationship after the initial fixed term, the agreement will be extended as a non-fixed-term agreement. A tenancy agreement can also be made in the names of two people.
You confirm the tenancy agreement by accepting it and its terms and by paying the first month’s rent. We do not require a separate security deposit.
Tenancy agreements signed via the Lumo webstore are not subject to the provisions on distance selling stipulated by Chapter 6 of the Finnish Consumer Protection Act. Even if a tenancy agreement is made online, you do not, for example, have the right to cancel the agreement within 14 days of making the agreement, as consumers generally do in the context of online purchases (Finnish Consumer Protection Act, Chapter 6, Sections 1 and 14).
Identity verification and checking customer information
Identity verification in the Lumo webstore is based on your online banking credentials. We also require your current address, e-mail address and mobile phone number. Your personal data will be stored in our customer data file. More information on the use of your personal data by Kojamo Group is available here.

We offer a satisfaction guarantee for all apartments listed in the Lumo webstore. This means you have the right to cancel the tenancy agreement after you have visited the apartment if the apartment does not correspond to the information provided about it or if it does not suit your needs. If you decline to visit the apartment, you waive your right to cancel the tenancy agreement. We aim to arrange the visit within three business days of the tenancy agreement being made.
Start of the tenancy agreement
Your tenancy agreement may start on the first business day after confirming the agreement, at the earliest, and it must start no later than on the 15th day of the following month. You can move in on the date you select as the starting date of your tenancy agreement. For apartments that are not yet completed or vacant, you can move in after the indicated date of completion or vacancy.
When the tenancy agreement has been confirmed, we will contact you on the next business day to make an appointment for handing over the keys and visiting the apartment. You may be able to visit your future home as soon as on the first business day after making the tenancy agreement.
