How to apply for a home
Take a look at our available rental apartments and find a home for your life.
Fill in your application online
Applying for a SATO rental home is quick and easy: just fill in the online apartment application.
1. Add homes to your apartment application
Visit our Find a home page to take a look at our range of homes and to add homes to your application. Do not hesitate to pick all the rental homes that interest you. If you change your mind or other homes that interest you become available, you will be able to edit your application and add or remove homes later on.
2. Identify yourself and send your application
Once you have selected the homes for your application, identify yourself using your online banking codes, mobile ID or OmaSATO login details. This identification will enable us to save your details securely, check your credit history, avoid any misconduct and identify you as a home-swapper if you already live in a SATO home.We will check the credit data history of applicants from the database of Suomen Asiakastieto Oy. If you are renting a home together with someone else, both of you will see if you pass the credit history check. We will also check the details of your possible previous history as a SATO customer, including any disturbance notices.
If you do not want to go through the sign-in process involving identification, you will only be able to apply for our ARA-subsidised rental homes.
3. View the home and decide
Once you have submitted your application, we will get in touch with you if we are able to show you the home you are applying for. It is important that you view the apartment either by visiting it or by taking a virtual tour before deciding whether or not you want to rent it as your home. Please note that we will allow several applicants to view a home at the same time. At times it may also be that there are so many applicants for a home that we can only provide a viewing for some of them.
Once you have viewed an apartment and notified us that you are interested in it, our sales consultant will get in touch with you. Because there are several customers viewing each apartment at the same time, it is possible that we may not be able to offer it to you. In that case, we will provide you with advice on how to continue your application.
If you need help with applying for an apartment, our customer service will be happy to help you in sato.fi chat and by phone, tel. 020 334 443.
