To order a printout of owner apartments, you need to enter your housing company’s business ID and name and the exact address of the apartment (e.g. Mannerheimintie 8 A 1b). The name of the apartment owner should also be included, if known. As the printout includes personal data, the purpose of use needs to be indicated (e.g. lending).

List of shares (Residential and Commercial Property Information System)

The list of shares is mainly intended for housing companies and shareholders. It is a printout of all apartments in the housing company and of their owners. Information about housing companies and apartments and the names of apartment owners comprise publicly available data.

A housing company shareholder, or other party with a legitimate reason to do so, can obtain a version of the list of shares that specifies the date of birth and address of the shareholder.
