So you're seeking rental accommodation in Munich? Make sure you read this page through to the end, it contains lots of useful information. Remember to also read the second page, including the post about tips for first-time renters. Once you're done here, then also read the other page: Apartments in Munich First decide: do you want furnished or unfurnished? If you choose unfurnished, remember that this means with absolutely no furniture whatsoever. Often there is not even a kitchen or a bathroom - just pipes sticking out of the walls ready for you to connect your own facilities. Secondly: live alone or sharing? In German the sharing of an apartment is known as "Wohngemeinschaft" or "WG" for short. If you are looking for a flat to yourself, short-term, and pre-furnished, then you should check the following advertised agencies: Mr. Lodge - Apartments Munich Mr. Lodge is a professional Munich furnished accommodation agency.

I'm sure this has been posted thousands of times, but perhaps someone could help me with my particular search, as I'm going with the following criteria: - short-term: starting a new job in a new city, and I'd rather see how the Probezeit goes, and thus don't want to sign a 2-year lease. - furnished: see above; don't want to furnish a new place in case my stay is short-lived. - single (or zweck-WG): admittedly, I'm not the most conventionally social (I'm working on that) and don't perform well at the infamous WG castings. Hope I can leverage an advantage as an employed person (decent €3000 brutto) - no distance preference: this is the point I'm hoping can get me somewhere. I'm happy to commute up to 50 min one way into Hamburg proper, even from the neighboring Bundesländer. That about sums it up. Admittedly it's something I haven't really found a service for, perhaps if someone could point me in a good direction?
shapebuster posted a topic in Life in BerlinHi all I am the landlord of an apartment in Berlin. It's a 4 room apartment in West Berlin. Unfortunately, we currently have a situation developing where I may never gain access to this apartment. I have owned this apartment since 2008. The apartment was already occupied by an older couple. At the time, I was unaware of the tenancy laws in Berlin and how it could impact my future. I would love to hear some advice from you if any of you have any experience in this regard. For the record, there was a couple living there since 1995 I think. I went to visit Berlin last year and went to check the apartment block. When I arrived, I noticed that there was a new name stickered below the current tenant's name on the doorbell. I was concerned as I thought the apartment was being sublet. I was angry and spoke to my property manager. She informed me that the wife has died last year and the husband has a new girlfriend living there. I immediately hired a lawyer to investigate the legalities of this. It turns out that its legal and they are entitled to do this. My lawyer then mentioned that if this new girlfriend marries the widowed husband, she will be entitled to live there with strict laws after he dies. This is very frustrating to me as I had hoped to let my children live here soon as they'll be finishing their studies. Is there any way to reduce the possibility of my fears occurring? If I wanted to get these people to move out how would you suggest going about it? I have waited a long time now and would really like to gain access to my property. Thanks
