Do I need SCHUFA information to rent an apartment with Wunderflats?
No, you do not need SCHUFA information to conclude a rental agreement through us. We use other documents such as current payslips or bank account statements to check the financial liquidity of all our tenants. Here you will find a list of the documents we require from you to prepare the rental agreement: Which documents should I have at hand?
Can I register in the apartment I book on Wunderflats (Anmeldung)?
Yes, as a tenant you can register in most apartments offered on Wunderflats (Anmeldung). When you make your booking, please look out for the information on the landlord's confirmation of residence in the listing. If “landlord's confirmation of residence (Wohnungsgeberbestätigung)” is included under "Services" as a feature of the apartment, then you can register in this apartment with the authorities. After you move in, your landlord will issue you with a confirmation of residence (Wohnungsgeberbestätigung), which you can submit when registering or changing the place of residence at the relevant registration office or citizens' office. Please find more information here on the registration (Anmeldung) and the landlord's confirmation of residence (Wohnungsgeberbestätigung).

What costs are included in the rent?
The monthly rent is an all-inclusive rent that already includes all utilities, such as heating, electricity, water and an internet flat rate. The fixed rate for utilities depends on the average consumption of the last years and the number of tenants. According to the experience of our Wunderflats landlords, the costs of different consumer behavior balance out well over several tenants. Only in case of significantly higher consumption, an additional payment might be due, which can be offset against the security deposit.
Which documents should I have at hand?
In order for us to draw up the rental agreement between you and the lessor, we need the following documents from you:
- - for employees: a copy of your employment contract or a current payslip to prove that you have enough financial liquidity to cover the monthly rent and that your stay is work-related
- - for self-employed persons or freelancers: financial evidence (e.g. a current bank account statement) to confirm that you have enough financial liquidity to cover the monthly rent
- - for students: proof of enrolment and financial evidence (e.g. a current bank account statement or security by a third party including income statement and a copy of the guarantor's ID or passport) to confirm that you have enough financial liquidity to cover the monthly rent
- - current address
- - for the identity verification through the Wunderflats Account: a valid government-issued identity document of every person moving in (find more information about the identity verification here)
Can I view the apartment that I want to rent beforehand?
We are happy to make a viewing appointment for you before signing the lease. If the landlord is not in the city at the time or the current tenant of the apartment does not consent to a viewing, then it is unfortunately not possible. However, most of the apartments on our platform are verified by one of our real estate photographers on site. You can recognise this by the watermark on the upper right edge of the picture. So, you save yourself the viewing and apartment selection time.
What happens after I’ve sent a booking request?
After you have sent a booking request for an apartment, the landlord/-lady checks your request. If the landlord/-lady confirms the request, we kindly ask you to send us all the necessary documents to create the rental agreement. We verify the correctness of your information and your financial liquidity, for example by confirming your employment. This is how we verify your stay, and we don't need any further documents from you, such as SCHUFA information. Please send us all documents as soon as possible and within 24 hours at the latest. If you need more than 24 hours to submit your documents, please let us know immediately. Otherwise your reservation will be cancelled if we do not receive the documents in time. Find more information on the required documents here: Which documents should I have at hand?
