An ‘Instant Booking’ is the fastest and easiest way to accept a booking.

 

Unlike the classic booking process, you no longer need to confirm a tenant’s request. A booking request is therefore immediately closed as soon as the tenant has entered his payment information.

 

In addition to the reduced effort on your part, immediate bookings also have other advantages, such as:

  • Better visibility: Apartments that can be booked immediately are specially marked on our homepage and thus catch the eye of potential tenants.
  • Vacancy avoidance: Due to the immediate binding nature of the booking, the chance of finding a direct tenant increases.

Homelike charges the first month’s rent to the tenant’s credit card 30 days before the move-in date. This payment is then held and credited to your rental management account.

 

Homelike transfers the first month’s rent, minus our service fee, to your elected bank account. Generally, your payout is sent a few days before the move-in date.

 

All subsequent monthly rental payments, as well as the security deposit, will be transferred to you directly by the tenant.

 

Important: Companies booking apartments for their employees always require a proper invoice. As the landlord, you must issue these invoices.

General

The “Gesetz zur Mietenbegrenzung im Wohnungswesen in Berlin” (MietenWoG Bln), better known as the “rent cap” or “Mietendeckel”, aims to control the development of rents in Berlin over the next five years (from 2020) by means of rent caps.

 

When does the law come into force?

The Berlin Senate passed the law on January 30, 2020 and it will probably come into force on March 1, 2020, with retroactive effect from June 18, 2019.

 

Who is affected?

The law applies to Berlin housing with the exception of:

  • housing in publicly subsidized housing construction,
  • housing for which public funds have been granted for modernization and repair and which is subject to rent control
  • residential property that was ready for occupancy for the first time as of 1 January 2014,
  • living space in a dormitory, and
  • housing rented or let by a legal person under public law or a recognized private welfare institution for the purpose of providing persons with urgent housing needs, care, or sharing.

 

Are furnished apartments also affected?

Yes. According to §3 paragraph 5 MietenWoG Bln, furniture and equipment are included in the “capped” net cold rent.

 

What limits have been set?

Net cold rent prices for the square metre were set at between €3.92 – €9.80, depending on the year of construction of the building. In the case of modern equipment of the flat or modernization measures carried out, the limit value can be increased by 1€/m². 

 

Where can I find further information?

On the official website of the city of Berlin, you will find the law for download and current news on the subject of “rent caps”. In addition, the most important questions and answers are summarized there.
