VVO has been engaged in administrative litigation to overturn the designation of VVO Vuokra-asunnot Oy as a non-profit company, and the Supreme Administrative Court has now resolved the case in VVO Group’s favour. The case was returned to the Housing Finance and Development Centre of Finland (ARA) for reconsideration early this year. On VVO Group’s application, ARA cancelled VVO Vuokra-asunnot Oy’s non-profitstatus. On 1 January 2016, VVO Vuokra-asunnot Oy merged with VVO Kodit Oy.
