How to sell an apartment in Germany with a tenant?
How to sell a flat in Germany if a tenant lives in the flat.
How do I evict a tenant in Germany? How do I terminate a tenancy agreement in Germany?
You should know that in Germany the price of a rented flat is much lower than the price of a similar flat without a tenant.
Is it worthwhile and possible to part with the tenant before selling the flat?
As a rule, selling your flat is not a sufficient reason in Germany for the landlord to terminate the tenancy agreement prematurely.
But there are a few options that you can use.
In some cases, for example, you can terminate the tenancy agreement on the basis of the continued use of the flat for your own needs (residential use).
When and how is this possible? To assess the situation, you should carefully examine the current contractual terms and conditions.
- You should check whether, for example, the local municipality has set a period (possibly ranging from 3 to 10 years) during which it is in principle "frozen" to terminate the tenancy, even for your own use.
- If there is no such time limit, you may terminate the tenancy agreement by giving your tenant 3 months' notice before the end of the agreement.
- You must justify your desire to use the flat for your own needs (you should explain the reason - moving, children's education...).
- Justified reasons
justification for the cancellation
A confirmed justification for the cancellation is no guarantee that the tenant will be evicted any time soon.
The proven justification is not a guarantee that the tenant will be evicted in a short period of time. If the tenant
objects to the termination of the lease
and shows that terminating the contract and moving out would cause
difficulties, for example because of their age, health or financial situation, the landlord should be prepared to extend the lease.
