Do SATO’s rental apartments have income or asset limits?

Some SATO rental homes are state-subsidised, which means assets of the person or family selected as a resident must meet the requirements set by the state. These apartments are marked with 'Asset limitations'. The selection of tenants for these apartments is based on a needs assessment in which assets as well as housing needs and income level are used as criteria. When applying for apartments marked with 'Asset limitations', make sure you also fill in the sections on housing needs, assets and income.

Most SATO rental homes do not involve any criteria relating to assets or housing needs.

The definite income limits in Helsinki, Espoo, Kauniainen, and Vantaa concerning new residents and home swappers are no longer valid, starting in 1st March 2018.
