Please park your car only in the designated parking areas. Unauthorised parking can cause hazards and disrupt access to the property. Depending on the property, you can rent a parking space in either a parking area, a garage or an indoor car park.

The parking spaces may be in parking areas in the yard of the building, separate car parks, garages or indoor car parks. Residents of some buildings may have access to parking spaces in a multi-storey car park, indoor car park or parking area managed by a separate regional parking company.

Parking is only allowed in the designated parking areas. Any other parking is unauthorised. The parking spaces are only intended for vehicles in use. Discarded or end-of-life vehicles or their parts are not to be kept on the property. The cost of removing end-of-life vehicles is the responsibility of the vehicle owner. As a rule, longer-term parking of vehicles on the property, even on rented parking spaces, is also not permitted.

Charging electric and hybrid cars with the electrical outlets of our parking spaces is prohibited. Some of our properties have separate charging points for electric cars.

Parking space reservation and fees

Parking space vacancies can be enquired about at the regional office. A written agreement is made for renting a parking space. The fee for the parking space is usually paid monthly with the rent.

The parking space agreement is always terminated in writing. We recommend using the termination form on our website. The notice period for a parking space is generally one month.

Parking spaces, indoor car parks and garages

The parking spaces and indoor car parks are intended for motor vehicles in regular use.

The garages are intended for the storage of motor vehicles and items related to their use. The use of the garage for other purposes is prohibited. We do not recommend storing flammable liquids and gases in the garage except for the fuel in the vehicle’s fuel tank. If you store them regardless, please follow the official regulations on maximum volumes (maximum of 60 litres of fuel).

Guest parking spaces

The guest parking spaces are only for short-term use by those visiting the building. The guest parking spaces are usually indicated with signs and have limited parking time. If the property does not have designated guest parking spaces, guests must park along the street in accordance with traffic regulations. 

Unauthorised parking

Parking on private property without the permission of the property owner or occupier is prohibited. Parking conditions are indicated with traffic signs or signs placed in the area. A municipal or private parking enforcement officer can impose a fine for unauthorised parking.

Unauthorised parking on the property, especially on service or rescue routes, is a safety risk. An illegally parked vehicle that poses a danger or long-term inconvenience may be towed away at the expense of the vehicle owner.

Service access

  • Permitted service access on the plot includes
  • necessary access related to the maintenance and security of the property
  • distribution traffic and the transport of heavy or otherwise difficult-to-carry objects
  • transport of a person with reduced functional ability and mobility
  • transport of children when one person has more than one child under the age of seven under their supervision
  • picking up and dropping off customers by taxi
  • driving a vehicle when the driver has a physical disability.

Engine and interior heaters

When using engine and interior heaters, observe the rules of conduct as well as any instructions specific to the regional office and building. Avoid unnecessary use of heaters. The use of an engine heater is recommended if the outside air temperature is below five degrees.

Never leave the heater power cord hanging from the electrical outlet when not in use. Always keep the lid of the socket outlet box locked. Maintenance personnel have the right to collect any hanging or defective cords. The return of collected cords can be enquired about by contacting the maintenance personnel and the regional office during normal business hours on weekdays.

The use of interior heaters in parking spaces with an electrical outlet may be prohibited because the electrical system cannot handle the power they require. Check with your regional office to see if an interior heater can be used in your parking space. At the same time, you will be informed of the maximum allowed power.

Charging point for electric and hybrid cars

Charging electric and hybrid cars from the electrical outlets of our parking spaces is prohibited. Some Heka locations have car spaces that are intended for charging electric or hybrid cars. For now, no special fee will be charged for using the charging points, instead the price is determined based on Heka’s parking space price list. The electricity used will be charged for based on consumption. 

The charging point’s user must register with the Virta service, and they will be given an RFID tag. This tag can be used for charging cars at all charging points connected to the Virta service, in addition to your personal charging point. The Virta service will then send the user an invoice for the electricity used at the different charging points.  

If you need or will soon need a charging point for your electric vehicle, please contact your regional Heka office. We will review whether there are available charging points in your location or whether a new charging point can be installed. When commissioning new charging points, existing parking space agreements may be terminated if the space in question is needed for an electric or hybrid vehicle. However, a new regular parking space will be offered to the tenant to replace their old one.
