The Process for Renting A Corporate Apartment In Germany

Securing Approval. After you select the best corporate apartment for your business, the apartment owner will most likely require copies of your last 3 income statements and your executive’s ID or Passport. The process will likely be made easier by also supplying a “Schufa Auskunft”, or a letter from your corporate or executive’s current landlord.  “Haftpflichtversicherung” or  German liability insurance is also a nice additional step to take.

Rental Agreement. The corporate apartment rental agreement will most likely be in German. FARAWAYHOME can provide a translation. Request that the apartment owner uses an official form, which should make the process simpler and easier. We also recommend having a German lawyer review your agreement. 

Apartment Deposit. After the corporate rental agreement is signed, you will likely need to transfer the first month rent and a refunded deposit worth 2 month’s rent. In Germany, an apartment owner or landlord may not ask for more than the value of 3 month’s rent up front. Most German apartment owners will prefer a transfer to their bank. To do this, you'll need the account holder’s name, the Iban and the BIC / Swift.

If your business will be renting for longer than a year, you should consider opening a German bank account. This will make paying bills in Germany much easier.

Pre Move In. Have the apartment owner write up a hand-over protocol. It should detail the exact address, floor, square footage, number of keys, and the name of the person handing over the apartment. Have your executive or an assistant make detailed documentation about the state of the apartment (decor, furniture, walls, windows, etc) upon arrival.

Settling In. After your executive has moved-in, they will have have 2 weeks by law to register at the Citizen’s office of the City. They will need their ID Card / Passport, the Rental Agreement and the "Wohnungsgeberbestätigung", or their confirmation of your apartment arrangement.  The apartment owner or landlord must provide you with this confirmation document within 2 weeks also. You'll also need a residence permit (“Aufenthaltstitel”) allowing you to stay longer than 3 months, if you are not an EU citizen, or from Liechtenstein or Norway.
