What Documents you need to rent a flat in Berlin

The rents in Berlin are still much lower than in lots of other capitals, but the days, when you could rent a centrally located flat for nearly nothing are definetely over.
Finding a permanent apartment if you are still abroad is difficult.  A new law – the “Bestellerprinzip” – came into force on June 1, 2015.  Now the owner has to  pay the estate agent.  This is good new for the tenants, but it makes it impossible to ask an estate agent to search the Berlin market for a permanent flat. Even if you offer to pay for this service. Neither estate agents, nor platforms are  allowed to take money from tenants any more.
It is much easier to start looking for a permanent and unfurnished apartment when you have already arrived in Berlin.

Renting a temporary furnished Apartment

It is much easier to start with renting  a furnished apartment.: It is more convenient and they are easier to secure. Nowadays, they all come fully furnished with internet, wifi, bedding, towels. cutlery,  plates, pots and all you need.  Most of the furnished rentals have a minimum rental period of 2 or 3 months. Since you never know how long it takes to find a permanent flat,  you can easily commit to a few months.  In order to be on the safe side, you should arrange an option to extend in your rental agreement.
This means that you tell the owner one month before your rental agreement terminated, if you want to extend the lease or not.  This makes you fairly flexible and you have the security not  been forced to move on. If you have an option to extend, the owner cannot rent out the flat to another tenant.

How to find an apartmnt in Berlin

Documents you need to secure an furnished Apartment?

This is what you need: Working Contract, Proof of Education

Renting a furnished tempory apartment is much easier than renting a permanent flat.  First of all, there are apartments on the market and with most flats there is less competition.
Owners are now not allowed to rent out their properties as holiday lets any more. This is another new law.  Owners can only rent out temporary flats to tenants who come to Berlin for work or for educational purposes (university, language course etc.).  When you apply for an apartment, you will be asked why you come to Berlin (to avoid renting out to tourists) and you might have to present a working contract.
Even if you don’t have a working contract yet, you still have good chances of finding a temporary apartment. If you work in It, for example, the chances of finding a job in Berln are very good. So the owner or the agency know that you will be able to hand in a working contract later on.
If you attend university or do a language course, you should tell the owner where and what youi study and if and how you can pay the rent. You might have a scholarship or your parrents might be paying.
The proof of work or study are the formal requirements, but the personal impression is equally important.  With furnished apartments, you not only rent an apartment – but also the complete furnishing etc. Owners want to be sure that they rent out to responsible tenants who look after the property, who do not party and disturb the neighbours or who waste energy. Most owners who own well-kept apartments will rather leave their flat empty than renting out to the wrong tenant.
Renting a furnished apartment is very simple. You can either use the services of an agency or answer adverts of owners. Since the tenant does not have to pay any fees any more, renting through an agency is not necessarily more expensive. It is more convenient and agencies help you finding a flat that acutually suits your needs.  But it is worth checking price and quality.
When renting furnished, you need a working contract or proof of further education.  Sometimes a proof of income or a confirmation that you have enough fiunds to pay the rent. Normally owners do not ask for a SCHUFA.

 

Renting a permanent Apartment

SCHUFA

Once you live in Germany, you will get a SCHUFA – proofing that you pay your bills and that you are not in debts. A SCHUFA is required when applying for a permanent, unfurnished apartment in Berlin and in the rest of Germany.

 

Mietschuldenfreiheitsbescheinigung

This is a certificate of rent paid that you get from your former landlord. You can also get it if you rent a temporary furnished apartment.

 

Proof of monthly income

You need to present payslips of the last 3 months or, if you are self employed, a BWA (Betriebswirtschaftliche Auswertung: economic evaluation) – also of the last 3 months.

10 Tipps für Owners: Thes Furniture should be avoided

Der Markt für möblierte Wohnungen hat sich sehr verändert. Noch vor Jahren konnte man noch alle Wohnungen leicht vermieten. Damals gab weniger möblierte Wohnungen auf Zeit auf dem Markt und Mieter mussten sich für die parktikabelste Lösung entscheiden.
Heutzutage haben Mieter die Auswahl. Jetzt vermieten sich vor allem Wohnungen, die nicht nur durchdacht eingerichtet und praktisch sind. Sie müssen jetzt auch noch gut aussehen. Die typische Ferienwohnung, die billig und anspruchslos eingerichtet war, ist ein Auslaufmodell.

Lesen Sie 10 Tipps für Vermieter: So vermeiden Sie die schlimmsten Fehler, wenn Sie eine Wohnung auf Zeit einrichten.

 

 

 

1. Pflanzen

Zmmmerpflanzen eignen sich nicht als Dekorationsobjekte für eine möblierte Wohnung. Es gibt natürlich Ausnahmen, und zwar dann, wenn die Pflanze zum Einrichtingskonzept gehört – z.B. eine große Palme. Pflanzen, die verteilt im Raum stehen, sehen aber in den seltensten Fällen gut oder modern aus. Daher besser ganz ohne Pflanzen vermieten. Es ist zudem schwierig, Mieter zum Blumengießen zu verpflichten. Sparen Sie sich den Ärger. Es gibt bessere Dekorationsideen als Pflanzen.

 

2. Perserteppiche

Perserteppiche waren mal angesagt und ziemlich teuer. Dies ist allerdings schon 20 oder 30 Jahre her. Damals waren diese Teppiche der Stolz underer Eltern und Großeltern. Heutzutage sind Orientteppiche nicht mehr modern. Wir machen immer wieder die Erfahrung, dass sich Wohnungen wegen des Teppichs nicht vermieten. Diese Rückmeldung bekommen wir von den Mietern.
Natürlich gibt es moderne Versionen des typischen Perserteppichs. Die Farben, die Muster – alles ist anders. Diese Teppiche sehen meist gut aus und lassen sich gut mit modernen Möbeln kombinieren. Den typischen Perserteppich sollten Sie vermeiden. Auch wenn Sie zufällig noch einen im Keller haben. Die Zielgruppe für möblierten Wohnungen ist zwischen Mitte 20 und Mitte 50 und sie arbeiten in Berlin.
Auch die Wohnung oben im Bild, die sehr hochwertig eingerichtet ist, trifft nicht den Geschmack der Mehrheit der Mieter. Obwohl sie eher günstig ist, ist es nicht leicht, hierfür einen Mieter zu finden.

3.) Regale

Regals sind nicht ideal für möblierte Wohnungen. Kleider- , Wandschränke oder Kommoden, alles, was dazu dient, Dinge wegzupacken, ist besser. Niemand braucht ein Regal. Niemand zieht mit seiner Bibliothek in eine möblierte Wohnung. Da man im Regal nichts wegpacken kann, sieht es immer unaufgeräumt aus. Dann lieber ein größerer Schrank.

 

4.) Zu viele Bücher

You already have shelves in your apartment and you don’t want to throw them away?  Then you should be careful not to leave too many books. Tenants are not necessarily interested in reading old(er)?  books . Expecially if they are  a bit dusty. It does not look very stylish either.

5.) Billige Ikea-Möblierung

Generally speaking, Ikea furniture is totally okay. But you should be careful not to buy only the cheapest stuff. If you are familiar with all the names of your Ikea furniture, the chances are good, that you only bought the basic and not so stylish items: Malm, Billy, Lack, Ivar..
It is best to match Ikea furnishing (like Pax)  with other, a bit more upscale furnishing. Then your apartment won’t look like a cheap holiday let.

 

6.) Second Hand Möblierung, Vintage

Buy now furniture. It is an Investment that pays.

7.) Hässliche Bilder

Unfortunately, it is true: You can ruin a good design concept with the wrong Pictures – even with one ugly Picture! The next time you see a bargain at Ikea, please don’t buy it. There are enough holiday lets with horrible Tourist sights like Brandenburger Tor already on the market. Needless to say: Those flats are not popular with good tenants.

 

8.) Schlafsofa statt richtigem Bett

Unless your apartment is very, very small, please always buy a bed instead of a sofa bed, Apartments with sofa beds are harder to rent out. A good bed with a good mattress (!) is the most important Piece of furnishing. No tenant puts away the bedding each morning and Transfers the bed into a sofa.
Sofabeds are only suitable for occassional visitors.

9.) Kleiderstange statt Kleiderschrank

Owners should always remember that tenants come to Berlin for work reason. So they have to Dress appropriately every day. For them, al clothes stand is not a substitute for a wardrobe. They have to store their cases, winter coats etc. Even if there is not a lot of space in your apartment: A real wardrobe is always a must.

 

10.)  Persönliche Gegenstände in der Wohnung

The personal belongings of the owners should not be left in the apartment. If the owner wants to rent out the flat while he is away and it is not possible to take out everything, there might still be the Option to put personal stuff into one room and lock it or to go down with the rent.  l

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

10 Tips: Things that should not be in a furnished Flat

What to avoid in Furnished Apartments in Berlin

The market for furnished flats have changed. Years ago, nearly all apartments rented out easily. There were less on the market and tenants had to go for a practical solution.
This has now changed. Nowadays tenants have the choice. And they go for the more stylish and modern flats. The typical holiday let with inexpensive and boring standard furnishing is an outdated model.

Here are 10 tips for owners to make sure they avoid the worst mistake when furnishing an apartment.

 

10073-01-baroque-apartment-berlin

 

1. Plants

Plants are not ideal decoration for a furnished apartment. There are exceptions though, but only if the plant is part of the design.
It is better to rent out an apartment without living plants.  A collection of potted plants does not look very modern. Tenants are also not to keen on looking after the plants. Spare yourself the trouble of arguing with the tenant in the end when the tenants moves out. There are better ways of decorating apartments.

 

2. Oriental style Carpet

Oriental carpets used to be popular  – and very expensive – 20 or 30 years ago. The pride of our parents and grandparents. Today, oriental carpets are not fashionable any more. In our experience, some apartments do not rent out, because of the carpet. This is the feedback we get from tenants.
There are new, modern versions of the typical Persian carpet on the market now. The colours are different and so are the patterns. These are okay, but the classical oriental carpets should be avoided. Owners should always remember that the target group for furnished flats are professionals, who come to work in Berlin. Most of them are between 25 and 50 and they prefer modern furniture.
Even the aparment abov which is expensivly furnished and not overpriced, it not everybodies favourite.

3.) Shelves

Shelves are not ideal for furnished apartments. Wardrobes, cupboards – everything that helps storing items, is much better. Nobody brings a library when they move into a furnished apartment. Storing items in shelves just does not look very good. You always see them because they are not packed away. Go for clean chic and better choose a wardrobe or a chest of drawers!

 

4.) Too many Books

You already have shelves in your apartment and you don’t want to throw them away?  Then you should be careful not to leave too many books. Tenants are not necessarily interested in reading old(er)?  books . Expecially if they are a bit dusty. It does not look very stylish either.

5.) Cheap Ikea Furniture

Generally speaking, Ikea furniture is totally okay. Some of them, at least. But you should be careful not to buy only the cheapest stuff. If you are familiar with all the names of your Ikea furniture, the chances are good, that you only bought the basic and not so stylish items: Malm, Billy, Lack, Ivar…
It is best to match Ikea furnishing (like Pax)  with other, a bit more upscale furnishing. Then your apartment won’t look like a cheap holiday let.

 

6.) Second Hand Furniture

Buy now furniture. It is an investment that pays. Most of the time, it does not become better, if you call it Vintage. If you mix a few items from the 60s, or 70s with modern furnishing, this should be okay. Nobody would say no to an old Eames or Panton Chair. Mixing to many old furniture with new might not be successful on the market. Tenants prefer a new and clean style.

7.) Ugly Pictures

Beware! You can ruin a good design concept with the wrong pictures – even with one ugly picture! The next time you see a bargain at Ikea, please don’t buy it. There are enough holiday lets with horrible tourist sights like Brandenburger Tor already on the market. Needless to say: Those flats are not popular with good tenants. Agencies are not allowed to rent out to tourists any more, only to people who come to work in Berlin.
On holidays you might ignore it. But if you live in an apartment for a longer period of time, you just don’t want to see “Sunset on the Brandenburger Tor” every day.

 

8.) Sofabed instead of real Bed

Unless your apartment is very, very small, please always buy a bed instead of a sofa bed. Apartments with sofa beds are harder to rent out. A good bed with a good mattress (!) is the most important piece of furnishing. No tenant puts away the bedding each morning and Transfers the bed into a sofa.
Sofabeds are only suitable for occassional visitors.

9.) Clothes Stand instead of Wardrobe

Owners should always remember that tenants come to Berlin for work reason. So they have to dress appropriately every day. For them, a clothes stand is not a substitute for a wardrobe. They have to store their cases, winter coats etc. Even if there is not a lot of space in your apartment: A real wardrobe is always a must.

 

10.)  Personal Belonings of the Owner

The personal belongings of the owners should not be left in the apartment. If the owner wants to rent out the flat while he is away and it is not possible to take out everything, there might still be the option to put personal stuff into one room and lock it or to go down with the rent.

 

 

 

 

10 Tips to make sure Tenants get back their Deposit

No Problems with Landlord when you move out of a furnished Apartment

With 97 % of all rentals, owners and tenants are on good terms, when the tenant moves out.
3% are not.
It does not mean that  the owner wants to earn some extra money if he does not pay the full amount of the deposit.
Let’s be honest: Some tenants leave a mess.
Thank god, this does not happen every day, otherwise we would surely start looking for a new job. But once in a while we really see photos of furnished apartments, taken after the tenants has moved out. Strange enough, even these tenants claim that they have left the flat in a proper condition.
So it is time to give some advice to tenants of furnished flats.

Chaos after the tenant has moved out

 

1.) No Parties

Berlin has an exciting nightlife. So there is no need to party in the rented furnished apartment.
And yes! You will be responsible for your guests spilling red wine over the new white sofa.
2.) No Flatmates:  Cats and Dogs
Not all owners accept pets in a furnished apartment. If you want to bring your pet, please tell the agency in advance and the agency will check with the owner.
If you want to get a pet after you have moved in, please ask the owner for permission. The owner might ask for a higher deposit. Understandably. Small pets which are not house-trained yet, can destroy the carpet and much more. Cats sometimes have very destructive hobbies!
The owner won’t be very pleased if you don’t tell him and if he finds a cat-scratched sofa or more furniture bound to end in the rubbish bin.

3.) No Endless Number of Visitors

Owners always rent out to a certain number of tenants. These are mentioned in the rental agreement.
Of course, you can have visitors. But please remember, that you don’t run a Bed and Breakfast. There should not be an endless number of visitors staying at the furnished flat.  If there is an additional sofabed, you can accommodate 1-2 persons, but not a whole football team sleeping somewhere on the floor.
The bills included in the rent are always calculated for a maximum number of tenants- it is not a flatrate.

4.) Cleaning on a regular Basis

Tenants have to clean the apartment regularly. It is not enough to rely on the final cleaning which you have to pay for after you have moved out.
If you don’t keep the apartment clean, there will be higher costs in the end and some things even have to be replaced.
You should wash the bedlinen and towels regularly. If you leave tons of dirty linen in the apartment, the cleaner has to take these to the laundry.  It is cheaper, if you only leave a set of bedlinen and a set of towels. The bedlinen also has to be professionally cleaned, if there are stains that do not come out in the washing.

5.) No Illegal Up- and Download

Nearly all flats have internet and Wifi.  You should make sure that you don’t participate in iany llegal filesharing. If you do so, the owner will receive cease and desist warnings and will be asked to pay a few hundred Euro. If he can prove that you have rented the flat when this happened, you will most likely have to pay. In this case it is always good to contact a lawyer.

 

5.) Don’t take the Keys with you

Please do not move out and take the keys with you. Yes, this also happens.
It is, of course, not okay, if you return it sometime. It should be immediately when you leave.
The next tenant does not feel very relaxed if he moves in knowing that you can still enter the place.
If you don’t return the keys immediately, the owner might change the lock at your cost. .

7.) Tell the Owner if anything happened

Please contact the owner if there are damages – leaking pipes, water in the apartment – waterstains on the ceiling. Please don’t wait. This will prevent further damage and will make sure that the owner or the management of the house can react immedialey.

8.) No Excessive Heating

If you always turn up the heating to the maximum and if you regulate the temperature by leaving the window open for hours during winter, the owner won’t be very happy. It also makes sense to wear a pullover instead of a t-shirt.
Please be eco-friendly and don’t waste energy.  Nobody should be freezing in any apartment, but nobody should waste energy either. The owner might ask you to pay if your heating bills are twice as high as average.

9.) Read the Rental Agreement

All of these issues can be found in the rental agreement.  It really helps if tenants read it.  :-).

 

10.) If the Damage is done

It always makes sense to find an agreement. This is much better than posting hate mails on the internet! Sometimes it is hard to believe that the apartment has been left in a perfect condition when the owner sends pictures proving the opposite. 😉

All this does not mean that you should not feel at home at a rented furnished apartment!
But we are taking about carelessness and lack of responsibility. Buying new furnishing or bedlinen after each rental is not included in the rent.

If you follow these 10 tips, you should not have any problems with the deposit

Gilt das neue Bestellerprinzip auch für Wohnen auf Zeit?

Was verändert sich mit dem Bestellerprinzip für möblierte Wohnungen auf Zeit?

Am 1. Juni 2015 wird das neue Bestellerprinzip aller Voraussicht nach in kraft treten. Auch wenn noch Resthoffnung besteht, dass das Gesetz auf der Zielgeraden vom Verfassungsgericht gestoppt wird. Der Gesetzgeber hat nun festgelegt, dass nur mehr der Vermieter einen Makler oder eine Zeitwohnagentur beauftragen kann.

Vermieter einer möblierten Wohnung auf Zeit und auch die Agenturen müssen sich umstellen. Sinn und Zweck des Gesetzes war eigentlich, Dauermieter von Maklerkosten zu befreien. Egal wie man dazu steht – die Zeitvermietung richtet sich an ein völlig anderes Publikum: Firmen, Relocation Agenturen, ausländische Geschäftsleute, Professoren etc. gehören zu den Kunden von Wohnagenturen. Menschen, die sich beruflich für eine befristete Zeit in Berlin aufhalten und die gerne bereit sind, für den Service von Zeitwohnagenturen zu bezahlen. Das soziale Argument zieht hier nicht. Aber vom Gesetzgeber wurde dieser Unterschied leider nicht berücksichtigt.

Das Bestellerprinzip ist zudem sehr eng gefasst. Das heißt, kein Mieter kann ab Juni keine Agentur mehr beauftragen, für ihn eine passende Wohnung in einer bestimmten Lage und Ausstattungsniveau zu suchen. Kein Makler wird diesen Auftrag dann mehr annehmen. Denn ab Juni kann der Makler einem Mieter nur mehr Kosten in Rechnung stellen, wenn er ihm eine Wohnung vermittelt, die es bisher noch nicht in seinem Bestand hatte . Kein Makler wird seinen solchen Auftrag mehr annehmen, denn falls der Mieter die Wohnung nicht mietet, geht der Makler leer aus. Die Wohnung ist verbrannt und er kann sie keinem anderen Mieter mehr anbieten, denn jetzt hat er sie bereits in seinem Bestand. Der Makler kann auch keine anderen Vereinbarungen mit einem Mieter als Auftraggeber treffen, denn eine solche Vereinbarung würde als Umgehungsgeschäft gelten und wäre rechtswidrig.. Auch wenn der Mieter dem zugestimmt hätte, könnte er die Kosten für die Beauftragung des Maklers einklagen.

Was bedeutet die Gesetzesänderung in der Praxis?

Wohnagenturen stellen in Zukunft dem Vermieter Ihre Leistung in Rechnung. Und nicht mehr dem Mieter. Da die Mietpreisbremse hier nicht gilt, kann der Vermieter seine Kosten natürlich auf die Gesamtmiete umlegen. Was nur logisch ist, denn schließlich ist es ein Unterschied, ob ein Vermieter einmal in 10 Jahren einen Makler bezahlt oder sich längerfristig eine Zeitwohnung zur Vermittlung anbietet.

Die gute Nachricht: Die Mietpreisbremse gilt nicht für möbliertes Wohnen auf Zeit

Bei der Vermietung auf Zeit bezahlt der Mieter einen Pauschalbetrag, in dem sämtliche Nebenkosten sowie Möblierungskosten etc. enthalten sind. Der Vermieter muss sich auch in Zukunft nicht am Mietspiegel orientieren, sondern kann den Mietpreis verlangen, den er auf dem Markt erzielt. Dieser ist auch oft davon abhängig, wie vielen Personen die Wohnung Platz bietet. Der Vermieter kann seine Kosten in die Miete mit einkalkulieren. Bei unbefristeter Vermietung geht das nicht. Auf den Websseiten der Agenturen werden ab Juni höhere Mietpreise – dann ohne Vermittlungsgebühr angezeigt.

Werden möblierte Wohnungen auf Zeit durch das neue Gesetz zu teuer?

Nein, denn letztendlich zahlt der Mieter genauso viel wie zuvor- Nur die Art der Abrechnung ist anders und leider etwas aufwändiger. Nach wie vor ist der Bedarf an guten möblierten Wohnungen groß und Geschäftsleute und Firmen sind auf dies e Art von Unterkünften angewiesen.

 

Werden Vermieter künftig bevorzugt auf Internetportalen wie Immoscout, Immonet etc anbieten

Für Vermieter besteht kein Grund vor den bald höheren Mietpreisen, jetzt ohne Vermittlungsgebühr, Angst zu haben. Denn diese Preise hat der Mieter auch schon vorher bei erfolgreicher Vermittlung bezahlt. Einige Vermieter werden jetzt vielleicht versuchen, ihre Wohnung zum neuen Preis selbst über die genannten Portale zu vermieten. Aber warum sollten seriöse Mieter und Firmen, selbst nach Wohnungen im Netz suchen, wenn Sie eine Zeitwohnagenturen gut beraten werden, gutes und aussagekräfiges Bildmaterial erhalten und sich darauf verlassen können, dass eine dritte Partei den Vermietungsprozess koordiniert.

Fazit:

Im Grunde genommen ändert sich für Vermieter und Mieter von Wohnungen auf Zeit auch mit der neuen Gesetzgebung nicht so viel. Es gilt das Prinzip rechte Tasche, linke Tasche. Bisher waren Miete und Vermittlungsgebühr zwei getrennte Posten . Der Vermieter muss wird jetzt seine Kosten an den Mieter weitergeben, indem er die Miete um die Vermittlungsgebühr erhöht, was natürlich völlig legitim und nachvollziehbar ist, denn natürlich müssen die Kosten für Beratung, Organisation und Marketing immer an denjenigen weitergegeben werden, der die Dienstleistung in Anspruch nimmt. Und dies ist auch legal. .
