Read through our rent payment instructions.
Pay the apartment rent monthly by the fourth day of each month. Any other fees, such as parking space rent and sauna and laundry fees, also usually have the same due date as the apartment rent.
For the payment of rent and any other recurring payments, we will send instructions on the payment of the following year’s rent in December each year. The instructions show the account to which the rent or other charges will be paid, as well as the reference numbers.
As the main tenant, you can also check the details and status of your rent payments and the amount of any rent debt on the Resident Portal (My economy - Show my economy).
If you have any questions about housing fees, please contact the Heka regional office.

E-invoicing is an easy and eco-smart way to take care of rent payments. The invoice comes directly to your online bank, so that all payment information on the invoice is always automatically correct, eliminating the possibility of a typing error. Paying the invoice only requires pressing a few keys.
Enabling e-invoicing also reduces the environmental load, as it reduces unnecessary paper consumption and the use of natural resources. The average climate impact of a paper invoice is four times that of an e-invoice.
To enable e-invoicing in your online bank, search for ‘e-invoice.’ Search for an invoicer named ‘Helsingin kaupungin asunnot Oy,’ and fill out the form. Once you have accepted the agreement, you will receive invoices directly to your online bank in the future.
Detailed information on how to enable e-invoicing can be found on your bank’s website.
Unpaid or partially unpaid rent
If you have temporary difficulty paying your rent, contact the lease secretary of your regional office to make a payment agreement. If the rent has been left fully or partially unpaid, the lease secretary will send a payment reminder to the tenant. If the rent is repeatedly not paid despite the reminders, the rent will be collected in court.
You can apply for housing allowance from Kela, also through Kela’s e-services. Kela’s website has a calculator (in Finnish) with which you can estimate whether you are entitled to housing allowance. If you receive housing allowance, it must be directed to be paid directly to the lessor’s, i.e. Heka’s, account. If necessary, the regional office is allowed to provide Kela and the social authorities with information on the tenant’s rent payment.
We do not require a security deposit from our tenants.
