What are the requirements?

Given the current apartment shortage situation in Berlin, Move to Berlin can only
implement apartment searches under the following conditions:

  1. Since furnished apartment offers are only available for a short time, we rely on your quick feed-back to be successful.
  2. We do not take on any furnished home searches for a budget below 1.200,00 €.
  3. In general your search criteria must be realistic.
  4. You can either have a fixed budget with a flexible district preference or a fixed district with a flexible, generous budget – otherwise the search criteria are too limited.
  5. We present up to 8 available options to you. Only if, through no fault of your own, you do not get any of these apartments, we will suggest more options to you.
  6. You provide Move to Berlin with complete application documents (these are defined by your consultant).
  7. It is your duty to inform Move to Berlin of all your own efforts to find accommodation and to coordinate these with your consultant.
  8. Generally it is not possible to view furnished apartments since they are rented out most of the time. Therefore we do not have the possibility to view a flat on your behalf.
  9. If you ask for an apartment rental, this request is binding. That means, if you as a result receive a rental contract, our service is completed.
  10. For apartment searches, the minimum required net income would be €3,600.00 for individuals, while for families or households with three or more persons, the minimum net income would be €4,500.00.
