Checklist for movers

Welcome to your new home! Moving is an exciting phase in life, but it also has its challenges and requires a lot of practical arrangements. We want to help to make your move as smooth as possible and ensure that everything goes well in your new housing company. Here is a checklist to assist you on your journey!

When you move into a new apartment, you need to inform the property management office, because they want to keep you up to date with all the relevant and current events within the property. The notification to the maintenance company is necessary for getting the right name on your door and for potential door opening services – the door will not be opened if the resident’s information is not registered with the maintenance company. When you move out of the apartment, please inform us so we can update the information in the register, and so that we can get in touch about the potential water meter readings and billing.

The responsibilities are divided as follows: the property manager handles the administrative aspects of the property, such as meetings, billing, and contract management. The property manager also prepares the housing company’s budget. The accountant is responsible for the housing company’s bookkeeping and other financial matters. The maintenance company takes care of property maintenance tasks, such as upkeep and repairs. Do get it touch with us, we’re looking forward to hearing from you!

There is a responsibility allocation table that clearly defines what falls under the responsibility of the company and what things are the responsibility of the shareholder. Generally, the housing company is responsible for exterior aspects of the buildings, such as facades, roofs, and common areas. The responsibilities of the shareholder include the interior parts of their apartment, excluding structures, insulation, and the basic systems maintained by the company.

The responsibility allocation table helps in determining who is responsible in potential problem situations.

We offer useful information and residential services here on Oiva’s website. Here, you can find the responsibility allocation table, make the change of address notification, and get more information about your housing company’s affairs. Additionally, in our online store, you can manage payments and invoices related to the housing company online.

If you are planning a renovation in your apartment, remember to notify the housing company in advance. The housing company has rules and guidelines for renovations, and following them helps ensure that everything goes as planned and without unnecessary disturbance to other residents.

Waste management is an essential part of living. Check your housing company’s guidelines for waste management and sorting. Usually, the housing cooperative has its own waste collection points and instructions on how to sort waste. Common guidelines include:

  • Waste must be sorted according to the instructions.
  • Cardboard should be flattened.
  • Larger trash should be broken down into smaller pieces, so the bins’ lids close.

Protecting the environment is very important to us, and by following sorting guidelines, we can all do our part.
