  • The city of Riihimäki has implemented an electronic service, with which it hands over plots electronically. The service enables electronic plot transactions and land lease agreements.

    A traditional trade requires time from the seller, the buyer and the confirmation of the transaction. It is often challenging to coordinate times. With the land surveying institution's electronic real estate exchange service, you no longer have to make an appointment for the sale with the city's representative, but you can sign the deed of sale, for example, at home when it suits you. The service is available every day from 00.15:23.15 to XNUMX:XNUMX. Using the service and signing contracts requires strong identification, for example with a mobile certificate or bank credentials.

    There is no longer a need for a sales confirmation. The traditional way will also remain in use alongside the new way. The plot customer has the opportunity to choose which method he wants to use. The choice is made after the plot is reserved, when the documents start to be drafted.
