The landlord confirmation: I beg your pardon?

Basically one is Landlord confirmation is a mandatory document from the landlord for the residents' registration office and proof that you as a tenant are allowed to live in the landlord's apartment and that you are actually at home there. The landlord confirmation should be handed over to you together with the rental agreement. Some people also call it the landlord's certificate or the moving-in confirmation. No official predefined form is required for the confirmation, but it should already contain the following data:

  • Name, address and handwritten signature of the landlord
  • Names of all reportable persons in the household
  • Address of the rental apartment
  • Date of moving in or moving out

Who is the landlord?

The landlord is, so to speak, someone who lets someone else use an apartment. This is often the landlord, but brokers and property managers, for example, can also take on the function of landlord. The owner of the apartment does not necessarily have to be the landlord. There are also some specific cases:

  • In the case of subletting or shared accommodation, the main tenant is the landlord.
  • When moving into the parental home, the parents are the landlords.
  • If you are the owner of the apartment, you must complete the certificate yourself and add a statement showing that you are the owner.
  • If you own a second home, you must also register there.
