Send back the signed final handover protocol.Please check the apartment after the handover and let us know about any additional things to be added to the protocol within 3 days, by sending us a short message with pictures and a detailed description. You can find further details in your protocol.
Exchange the name tags on mailbox and doorbell. We will give the information on you moving in to the property management who will then change the names on your doorbell and mailbox. However, that usually takes some time, so feel free to put on temporary name tags that can be easily taken off, to make sure post and deliveries already reach you and your friends will find you.
Regarding visitors, please also comply with the federal and state level regulations, for example the SARS-CoV-2-Infektionsschutzverordnung in Berlin.
Register your residence. Here comes one of those long German words we are super proud of: "Wohnungsgeberbestätigung". This is the document you will need in order to register your residence at the municipal authorities. This document certifies that you moved into a specific apartment on a specific date. You will receive the document automatically from us after the handover date. Please make sure to keep that certificate and bring it to your appointment at the municipality.
Update your address. Notify friends as well as institutions such as banks and insurance companies about your new address.
