Short-term rentals are becoming trendy in Finland. Different online platforms like Airbnb and Friday Flats allow private home owners to rent out their homes and make extra earnings during holidays, for example.

Yle (the Finnish Broadcasting Company) recently published an article telling how condominiums or cooperatives can't prohibit tourist accommodation. However, if you’re a renter, you need to carefully check your lease before you rent your apartment on a short-term basis. Most leases contain provisions restricting or prohibiting short-term rentals and sublets unless the landlord’s permission is obtained in advance.
