Savvy FAQ

Rental contract

All leases are perpetual, there is no need to renew.

Without a prior inspection, you have a two-week right of revocation. To revoke your lease, contact:

Basic rent (incl. furnishings) + flat rate for operating costs (incl. Internet, excl. electricity and GEZ charges, the German radio and television license fee) + advance payment for heating costs. 

The landlord gives the tenant a flat rate for the ancillary costs, which the tenant must transfer to the landlord’s account each month. The lump sum then covers all ancillary costs. This means that the landlord does not have to prepare an annual service charge statement – that’s the main difference to the advance payment of operating costs.

Usually, at the end of the year or at the latest three months after moving out.
