How do I become a tenant with WOBAG?
- If you are not yet registered with us as a prospective tenant, you must first fill out a questionnaire for prospective tenants. Here you can enter information about the desired city, the number of rooms, the size of the apartment, the rent and much more. You will then be registered with us.
- As soon as we have an apartment on offer that matches your search, we will contact you to arrange a viewing of the apartment. If the apartment does not meet your expectations, please let us know, stating the reason, so that we can modify your request if necessary.
- If the apartment meets your expectations, we will draw up a rental contract. After signing the contract and paying the deposit, the apartment will then be handed over by the responsible janitor after prior appointment.
Why should I fill out the housing prospect form?
Your data will help us to select suitable apartment offers for you. Not all of our vacant apartments are displayed on our website, so our staff can introduce you to other available apartments.
In addition, if the apartment is still rented, we can only give you the contact details of tenants if we have your data.
Do I have to pay a commission to WOBAG?
No. With us you only pay the agreed rent plus the deposit.
Is there a minimum rental period?
As a rule, not. In the event of termination, only the statutory period of 3 months must be observed.
However, if WOBAG has made any changes to the apartment at the tenant's request, then the minimum rental period of one year applies. The waiver of termination then applies to both contracting parties. Extraordinary termination - for example due to significant rental defects or other important reasons - is possible despite the waiver of termination.
Do you become a member of WOBAG?
No. We are a housing association (GmbH) and not a cooperative.
As a trainee / student, am I allowed to sign a rental agreement on my own?
No, to secure the lease, a second party with their own regular income is required.
How long does it take to get an apartment?
Unfortunately, this cannot be predicted, because it depends on many factors. We look for offers that meet your wishes. However, there are often several interested parties looking for the same apartment, so unfortunately we cannot fulfill every wish. If there is more than one interested party, we allocate an apartment according to fixed criteria, such as waiting time and creditworthiness of the interested party. In order to check the creditworthiness of the tenant, WOBAG obtains information regarding the personal statistical data stored about the tenant from a contractually bound credit agency.
