Living in a Lakea home

Living under the same roof is pleasant when we pay attention to cooperation, take others into consideration and understand our own responsibilities and those of the housing company. Looking after your home is a skill among others, so you should read Lakea’s guidelines for everyday life – from cleaning to fire safety.
