When the tenancy agreement ends you must return your keys either to PSOAS Studio, Mannenkatu 6 A or PSOAS Lounge at the University by 2 pm the last day of the month. The right place for returning the keys depends on whether the housing location belongs to the southern area (returning point PSOAS Studio) or northern area (PSOAS Lounge).
If the last day of the month is weekend or holiday the keys must be returned by the following working day 12 pm. If the new tenant is not able to move in on time because of the old tenant’s delay in returning the keys, a fine of 50 € or daily rent – whichever is higher – will be charged from the out moving tenant.
If you need to return your keys outside the office hours just put the keys into an envelope, write your name and address on it and drop the envelope into the key mailbox next to the PSOAS office front door. Remember to check if the keys belong to the southern area or northern area before you return them. If you leave your keys inside the apartment, PSOAS will deduct 50 € from your deposit for the collection of the keys.
To make moving easier it is also possible to give the keys directly to the new tenant. If you decide to do so, it is your responsibility to agree on the apartment check with the janitor. The apartment has to be cleaned and checked before you can hand over the keys. You will also need to sign this form with the new tenant to document the keys given and the condition of the apartment. Please bring or e-mail the signed form to the housing office.
