Extension of a single-family home plot lease contract after the contract expires 

As a rule, the city of Oulu extends single-family home plot lease contracts by renewing them for 35 years. In connection, the city will review the lease contract’s rent to match present rent levels. Zonal prices have no effect on lease contracts that are in effect and their rental payments remain the same for the duration of the contract. A new land lease contract’s rental payment will be 4% of the new zonal price (see the zonal prices in the map service; in Finnish). In extended contracts, the rental payment will gradually rise to match the new price (50% for years 1-5 and 75% for years 6-10). Exceptions have been set for some areas which will be followed the first time the contract is extended.

Purchasing rented single-family home plots 

The city of Oulu sells single-family home plots to renters at zonal prices. The single-family home plot must be built. The rental payments end when the purchase contract is signed. 

As a rule, the city does not sell rental plots located near the city centre. These areas are marked as “Tapauskohtaisesti” (case-by-case basis) in the zone map.
