How we draft contracts and pay compensations
Land use contracts are always made in two copies: one for Caruna and the other for the land owner. An authorized contractor will sign the contract on our behalf. If the land area has several owners, each owner needs to sign or issue a letter of attorney to sign the contract.
Signing a contract
As a client you may chose between signing a contract electronically or by hand.
The electronic signature is made in a secure environment, using banking codes for secure identification. We will send you a link via e-mail, which will take you to a page where you can make the electronic signature. In order for us to send you the link, your contractor will ask you for your e-mail and your identity number. When used together, your banking codes and identity number, form a strong means of identification. We never use your identity number for any other purposes but to use the service you must have Finnish banking codes.
However, if you wish to sign the contract by hand, your contractor will deliver you as a land-owner your contract as well as an envelope with a return address and paid postage. All attachments, such as letters of attorney, should be attached to the signed contract.
In accordance to our contract, we pay a one-time compensation to landowners for the inconvenience when placing electicity lines in an area. This one-time compensation will be paid within two months from the time we have received the original signed copy or the contract and the building work has begun.
