In most cases, a tenant applying for a new apartment due to the worksite disturbances will not be placed at the front of the queue, but we will attempt to find an apartment of the same level for the tenant as soon as possible. For example, a tenant living in a one-room apartment with shared kitchen facilities cannot be placed in front of those queuing for an Aitiopaikka apartment, but it is possible to find a room in a shared apartment or a small one-room apartment quite quickly in locations where the queue is not long, if there are apartments available.
