Housing Counselling

Housing counselling helps you with housing-related problems. It is important to tackle housing problems at the earliest stage possible. Contact us immediately, if you have any questions related to housing.

The housing advisor can help you with

  • rental payment problems
  • threat of eviction
  • housing subsidy and benefit applications
  • filling in housing applications and
  • other housing-related challenges.

Housing counselling usually includes short-term, low-threshold guidance and counselling.

The primary goal of the housing counselling is to secure your housing arrangements under all circumstances. The aim is to prevent rental debts and unnecessary evictions.

The housing advisors evaluate the housing situation comprehensively. Together with the customer, we assess possible rental payment plans and also provide information about other applicable services and forms of support in case of problems that are not related to housing. If necessary, we also offer housing orientation for homeless customers upon receiving new accommodation.          

The co-operation network of the housing advisors includes, for example, public housing companies, property managers, social and health services, organisations, congregation, housing services, Kela and enforcement office.

The services of the housing advisors are provided free of charge. All Espoo residents, including landlords and relatives, may use the housing services.

Contact the housing advisor’s call-back service on weekdays from 8 am to 2 pm. We aim to call you back during the same day.
