Credit information check

The credit data classification of applicant or a guardian of an under-aged applicant is checked automatically from Suomen Asiakastieto. When you apply for a Hoas apartment, you give us a permission to check the credit history.

What if I have payment defaults?

A record of payment default doesn’t prevent you from applying for Hoas apartment. Only if you or your guardian have outstanding debts to Hoas, you may not submit a housing application.

Additionally, stricter conditions will be applied to apartment agreement if the applicant or the guardian has at least one of these:

  • Eight or more payment default entries
  • Default total of over 1 000 euros
  • Rent defaults
  • Records of bankruptcy, debt restructuring, impecuniosity or corporate restructuring.

Stricter conditions on tenancy agreement

If you or your guardian has payment defaults, these conditions are applied to the tenancy agreement:

  • A deposit according to the type of apartment
  • Equivalent to three months’ rent in advance
  • Tenancy agreement will be set to a fixed term of six months. If rent payment and overall living has gone without problems, it is possible to extend the tenancy agreement.
  • In family apartments, if one tenant has records in their credit history it affects the other applicants’ agreement, since family apartments have a joint tenancy agreements.
