Register with a friend or reregister multiple times while living in airbnb's

I put off finding a new apartment/house. I've just handed over my old house and am now living from one airbnb to the next. I think my options are the following:

1. Try to register at each airbnb. deregister/register with every move, which costs money, plus if a Gemeinde doesn't like it maybe I have to get the airbnb host to draw up some paper contract

2. Register with a friend. In fact it is a WG and they even have an open room but is it legal to do this way if we don't actually have a contractual Nachmieter agreement?

I don't want to bend the rules excessively and don't mind paying extra fees for registering/deregistering. But I just have not succeeded in finding a place and have such a complicated situation when it comes to finding the right place.

Not Nachmieter, I mean a sublease/Untermieter.

Sometimes the authorities do not accept AirBnBs, sometimes they do, and this seems to be regional, perhaps municipal, and sometimes a matter of the person who processes your registration. Therefore, you risk that one officer will accept and AirBnB, but the next not.

I think you would save yourself a great deal of trouble, time, effort, money and paperwork if you just took that room in that (or any other) WG and really lived there, and registered that address as yours. And yes, do it with a proper rental contract. From there, look for a place you like.

Not sure what makes your situation "complicated", but moving very often will not help you if you do apply for more permanent housing, if that is your goal.

Why not post here under "property wanted" with what you are looking for? Perhaps there is a member who can help. By help I don't mean giving a link to ads or a list of websites where you can look as I am sure you already know how to do this.

Good luck!
