Apartment Viewing
+
-
What is the procedure for an apartment viewing, and what exactly will be viewed?

For the first apartment viewing we will present you the showcase or specific vacant apartment, as well as the object itself.  A member of our sales staff will greet you at the property entrance and guide you through the house and outdoor facilities. Prior to the meeting you will be informed by email or telephone about the exact location, time and contact details of your consultant.  Should you be interested in a rented apartment, we can, as a next step, arrange a second viewing in coordination with the tenant. Of course we are also available for further follow-up visits or inspections with architects or other companies.

How long does an apartment viewing usually take?

On average, an initial viewing usually takes around 30 minutes, however this can vary individually. Should certain questions remain unanswered we can arrange a follow-up meeting in our office or an alternative meeting point.

The second viewing inside the tenant’s home is generally shorter and usually only takes between five and ten minutes in order to disturb the tenant as little as possible.

Documents
+
-
Can I receive additional photos of vacant or rented apartments?

Should you be interested in a property, we will, if possible, send you photos of the rented apartment. However, the protection of the tenant’s privacy is important to us. Thus we cannot provide photos for every apartment. On request, we can usually provide you with photos of the vacant apartments. 

An apartment viewing, however, is when you will receive the best impression.

Can I receive documents such as settlements and protocols of the apartments?

If interested, we will provide you all relevant documents contained in our document package “bank file” by email. Should you require further documents, please do not hesitate to contact us.

What belongs to the communal property of an object?

The communal property includes all parts of an object which do not belong to the individual ownership property (the actual apartment itself). These are usually garden facilities, laundry and boiler rooms. These can be used as communal property by all owners. In addition, there is the compelling communal property. These parts include, for example, circulation areas such as staircases, elevators, supporting walls, roof and the façade. The buyer receives the right to use the communal property by purchasing the apartment.

Construction Measures
+
-
Are these apartments refurbished, or are plans for refurbishment measures underway?

Most of the apartments are in an unrestored condition and are sold as is. The respective buyer decides for himself whether and how he wants to renovate the condominium. We are happy to put you in touch with the relevant companies for redevelopment. However, the respective orders are not a component of the purchase contract. For this purpose, a separate contract ought to be concluded with the contractors.

Will any measures be carried out on the communal property, such as recoating the façade or renovating the staircase?

Whether measures on the objects are planned and/or executed depends on the project. Appropriate plans are often drawn up in advance and checked by the building authorities. These measures can later be executed by the newly founded community of owners. Please refer to the property exposés, the documents we have sent to you or simply ask a member of our sales staff for the exact plans at any time.

Are the costs for renovation or refurbishment included in the purchase price?

If renovations and redevelopment measures of the communal property are planned, the costs will be included in the purchase price. Exact details can be found in the sales contract. The refurbishment or renovation of the condominium and thus the acquired individual ownership property (the actual apartment) is, however, not included and must be borne independently by the buyer.

Would a consultation with regard to apartment renovation or refurbishment be possible?

We will be happy to put you in touch with companies with the appropriate technical expertise to help you with the renovation or refurbishment of your acquired apartment.

How do I get access to further documents required for financing the apartment?
