The Process for Renting A Furnished Apartment

After you pick the perfect apartment in the most ideal neighborhood, it’s time to begin the process of renting your furnished Apartment.

You will most likely need scans of your last 3 income statements as well as your ID or Passport. Having a letter from your last landlord is advisable, as is liability insurance.

Be prepared to receive a rental agreement, or lease, in German. Ask assistance of a local friend or you can hire a translator or a lawyer to review the agreement for you.

It is normal for such arrangements to requirement the payment of the first month rent and a refundable deposit equal to two months rent. Not that asking for the value of three months rent upfront is the legal limit. You should expect to have to wire these funds.

When agreeing to the details of moving into of the furnished apartment, be sure to get everything in writing, and to document the move-in state of the apartment. Take high-quality pictures of the apartment’s details and any damages to the walls, furniture, house inventory, or floors. Ensure you have a firm understanding of how you’ll receive the keys and how many.

Your move-in instructions should detail the exact address of the apartment, floor, square footage, number of rooms, and the name of the person handing-over the apartment. This person should also sign your move-in agreement.

At the end of the move-in and apartment hand off, you should make a copy of the move-in agreement, one for you and the other for the contractor.

Finally, after you have settled in, you’ll have two weeks to register with the government. You'll need your ID or Passport, your rental agreement and a signed agreement from the actual owner of the apartment.
