Re: Does "Anteilscheine" mean "deposit"?

no worries, you did an excellent job of explaining its complexities. You are also correct to point out that Baugenossenschaft tend to be social-minded when they choose rentors, esp in regard to families.

Thanks to you two for explaining it further! Yes, the cooperative will invest the money from the Anteilsschein in existing or new buildings, or for other things benefiting the renters.

Also, because the cooperatives are socially oriented, they rent out adequately sized apparments. They won't give a 6 room appartment to a single person household.
