Fre­quent­ly as­ked ques­tions about group te­nan­cy

A group tenancy apartment is an apartment that is shared between multiple residents. Each resident is provided with their own room, and they all share the general facilities of their apartment. Our objective is to allow residents to have a say in who they wish to live with. Even in a situation where one resident of a group tenancy apartment decides to terminate their tenancy agreement, the remaining residents will still be able to influence the choice of the new resident. However, all final decision are made by A-Kruunu on the basis of the applications it receives.

Group tenancy housing is communal living at its best and suitable for many different walks of life, from seniors to families with children who wish to share an apartment together. Shared housing also makes it easier to share the costs and obligations of everyday life.

Anyone in need of housing. You can apply for group tenancy housing by yourself or in groups of 2–4 people. If a group is smaller than the number of rooms available in an apartment, A-Kruunu will select the residents for the remaining rooms.

Our resident selection process is based on the means-testing policies specified in ARA’s resident selection guidelines, and each site is subject to a wealth limit. Our process follow a set of means-testing criteria that emphasises those persons and groups who are most in need of housing.

After the application period has started, you can apply for a group tenancy apartment using a separate application form. Group tenancy apartments cannot be applied for using the Housing Search service on A-Kruunu’s website or with A-Kruunu’s general application form.

If you already know someone who you would like to live with and they are also in need of an apartment, you can each submit your own applications where you must clearly state that you are applying for the same apartment together. Please note that due to the ARA resident selection criteria, we cannot guarantee that a pre-assembled group in its entirety can be housed in a  group rental apartment. You can also apply for a room in a group tenancy apartment by yourself.

If you are applying as a group, you most likely already know each other so well that there will be no need for any separate roommate surveys. 

If you are applying for a room in a group tenancy apartment by yourself, you must use your application to describe yourself and your housing-related wishes in as much detail as possible. As the resident selection process progresses, we will also send specific questions to certain applicants in order to ensure that these residential communities will be able to get along even when their residents do not know each other beforehand. Our goal is to take each applicant’s housing wishes into account to the furthest extent possible, but our selection process is guided by certain guidelines that A-Kruunu must follow in its resident choices. All applicants who are selected for a group tenancy apartment will be given the opportunity to meet each other before signing their lease agreements. 

Pets may be kept in group tenancy apartments on a case-by-case basis. You will need to gain the approval of your roommates and the service manager of the building beforehand.
