Apartment transfer

Sometimes situations in life change and your current apartment no longer meets your needs in terms of size or location, for example. You can apply for a transfer from one location to another, for example from a shared apartment in Leppävaara to another shared apartment in Teekkari Village – or maybe you need to transfer from a shared apartment to a studio or move from a studio to a two-room or three-room apartment that is more suitable for a family with children.
