Rental contract options

Hello,


We're looking to change apartments due to various reasons and have asked regie on how to do this in proper manner.

Normally we would need to give 4 months notice before end of December, which would mean regie will also inspect the apartment and bill us for anything they see fit.

However we're looking to change asap, and the option presented was that we need to find someone with solvent application who takes on the lease with same conditions.

Now there is a bunch of questions I am not very sure about and was wondering how it has been for the others.

1. Will the regie still inspect the apartment and bill us for something like minuscule scratches or request us to do a deep clean?

2. Will the new renter do a contract with me (as sub-renter) or with regie?

3. Will it be enough to provide like 3-5 really interested people, or is it possible that regie will reject all of them?

4. What exactly might regie mean under this point : Ces derniers auront un contrat officiel à leur nom établi par notre régie, ceci vous libèrera de vos obligations vis-à-vis de la location de cet appartement.

5. Could there be anything else to pay attention to or know before doing such apartment hopping?

Re: Rental contract options

There are plenty of threads about this. Do a search in this section of the forum.

1. Yes, they will and could still bill you for any damages, etc.

2. You will no longer have anything to do with the apartment if you find someone to take over your lease.

3. Yes. It doesn't matter if the regie rejects them, so long as they are suitable.

4. It means what it says. Once a new tenant signs the contract, the apartment is no longer your responsibility.

Re: Rental contract options

1. You will need to leave your apartment clean for new tenants. If there is damage, you will be held responsible.

Number 4 answers your number 2: new contract with the régie, once the handover between you and the Régie is done, you will get your deposit back and new tenant will pick up your contract (same conditions, different tenant).

By law, you need to present 1 solvent person interested in taking the apartment. The Régie does not have to accept but you will be off the hook. You can always present more than 1 solvent person, that does not hurt.

You can search in the forum, there are a lot of interesting information regarding rental contracts.

Good luck!

Re: Rental contract options

Formally, you don't cancel the contract. Instead you notify the regie of your intent to leave as per date xyz and provide a solvent(!) follow-on renter willing to enter into the contract at your stead. You need to be able to prove their willingness, so do get the contact data of each one. See here for some templates in German. Sure, most regies will accept a follow-on renter even if you give actual notice because it relieves them from finding one themselves, but they're not obligated to.

That way, if you can't present a solvent follow-on renter, the contract will end at the contractual end date that is equal to, or follows, your date xyz.
