Inform the appropriate provider, e.g. the local waterworks (Wasserversorger, Stadtwerke, e.g. ) in your area that you are the new tenant in your flat or room. (In case of Kaltmiete). (If you live in a W.G. the arrangements could be different and you may only have to share the general costs). Register with the G.E.Z. in Germany so that you can legally use your TV, computer and radio. If you do not register with the G.E.Z. and are caught using your television etc. without having registered you will have to pay a fine. Ask for help from landlord if you have any problems

11 © FH AACHEN UNIVERSITY OF APPLIED SCIENCES12. Januar 2014 | 11 Unlimited Contract Inform the landlord by writing a letter with your signature three months ahead of time (2 months in case of student dorm). cancellation period (Kündigungsfrist) is usually 3 months – even if it is not written in your contract. Better to send a registered letter (Einschreiben).You will have written proof that the landlord got the letter. Read your contract for the cancelling restrictions. For example: some contracts only let you cancel at the end of the month. Limited rent contract cannot cancel this contract before the end of the rental period! Please be very careful before signing limited contracts! Some landlords might accept a 1 month cancellation period if you find next tenant (Nachmieter). Important things for rent a room

12 Limited Time Contracts But – be careful: If you have a limited rent contract, for example for one year, you often cannot cancel this contract before the end of the rental period! Please be very careful before signing limited contracts! Do not sign a limited long term contract as it does not allow you to move out before a certain period of time (which could be 3 years!).

13 Cancellation Period for Unlimited Contracts You cannot move out from one day to the next. You must give written notice! If you have an unlimited contract, you have to tell the landlord that you want to move out three months ahead of time (2 months if you live in a student dorm). By German rental law this cancellation period (Kündigungsfrist) is usually 3 months – even if it is not written in your contract. You have to cancel your contract by writing a letter, not with phone call. These letters are only valid with your signature. We recommend cancelling your room with a registered letter (Einschreiben) that you send from the post office. You will then have written proof that the landlord got the letter. Read your contract for the cancelling restrictions. For example: some contracts only let you cancel at the end of the month. If you dont cancel your contract correctly, you might have to pay rent on 2 rooms at the same time.

If you live in a student dorm, you have to get WRITTEN PERMISSION from the - Studentenwerk - people in the house - International Office - student dorm commission - building manager (Herr Schlechtriem). If you do not follow this rule, neither of you will ever get a room in the student dorms again. Important things for rent a room

15 Where should you look for private rooms and apartments (flats)? Notice Boards You can also post your own advertisement on the board by Fachschaft in 00A05. Advertisements in local newspapers, magazines, in local shops and supermarkets, eg. Real in Jülich. Internet Real Estate Agency (Immobilien firma)

16 Where should you look for rooms? The best place to find rooms is through advertisements in local newspapers and magazines. Most useful: Super Sonntag and Jülicher Woche are available on Sundays and Wednesdays free of charge and Read the advertisement sections, on Wednesday and Saturdays, in the local newspapers Jülicher Nachrichten or Jülicher Zeitung
