Temporary living is a modern and very flexible way of living for people who only need a fully furnished apartment for a few weeks or a few months. Just rent your new home and move in immediately. If you take a job in another city and don't want to move completely, you have a retreat with a temporary apartment and can calmly look around for a permanent apartment or home.
Do you have a temporary job or take on a project in another city? Perhaps you are also attending a seminar or internship lasting several weeks or are a student with a semester abroad? Even with extensive construction work or due to water damage in your apartment, the temporary rental of a replacement apartment can be a sensible solution.
Many apartment rental companies on our online marketplace also want long-term rentals. On our booking portal you will find fully furnished apartments in the best inner-city locations of Cologne, Essen, Dortmund, Düsseldorf and many other cities in North Rhine-Westphalia. The offer ranges from simple mechanic apartments to exclusive designer apartments that can be rented from 2 months to 12 months.
Temporary living offers you the necessary flexibility and correspondingly cheaper rental terms than the daily rental.
In addition to a written rental contract, the contracting parties should also draw up an inventory list when handing over the apartment. In this list all furniture and furnishings as well as their current condition are recorded. If you want to be on the safe side, take a few photos of the current state of the apartment when you hand it over. The lease should contain clear rules about who pays for damage to the apartment.
In the case of short-term rentals, the provider is completely free to set the rental prices. In addition to the quality and scope of the equipment, the location and the contract term must be taken into account when pricing. In the case of long-term rentals, the rental price is calculated on the basis of the standard local rent. The rent usually includes all additional costs. In addition, the landlord may request a surcharge for the complete furniture.
If you would like to rent an apartment on a temporary basis, the following documents are usually sufficient:
- ID or passport
- Proof of income (e.g. proof of salary and employment contract)
- Schufa information (for German tenants)
