How does Wunderflats deal with misappropriation law?

In order to counteract housing shortages, some cities and municipalities prohibit the use of housing for purposes other than residential. For example, renting out apartments to tourists on a daily or weekly basis. Apartments offered on are not intended for short holidays or short stays. Wunderflats offers apartments for the actual purpose of living.


Together with our landlords/-ladies, we make sure that all living criteria are fulfilled and that accomodation criteria are excluded, for example: 

  • We work with all-inclusive rents that are payable per month.

  • We verify the reason for stay of all potential tenants in order to exclude a tenancy for touristic or medical purposes.

  • We issue a valid fixed-term rental agreement, which is limited for a certain period of time of at least one month.

  • We ensure through our terms and conditions that every tenant can register in the apartment (Anmeldung) and is allowed to label their letter box and bell.
