Accommodation provider confirmation; submission

When you move into a new apartment, you need a confirmation from your landlord that you have moved in. You must present this to the registration office each time you register.



You will receive the housing provider confirmation from your landlord.

Landlords also have the option of submitting the confirmation electronically to the registration office if the municipality/city administration has opened a corresponding access. In this case, you will receive a so-called assignment feature from your landlord, which will be communicated to him by the registration office.

When you register at the registration office, you present the landlord's confirmation or provide the assignment feature.

Special notes

If the housing provider does not issue the confirmation, does not issue it correctly or does not issue it in time, he commits an administrative offense that can be punished with a fine of up to EUR 1,000.

It is prohibited to offer or make available an apartment address for registration to a third party, although an actual occupation of the apartment by a third party neither takes place nor is intended. A violation of this prohibition constitutes an administrative offense and may be punished by a fine of up to EUR 50,000.


The housing provider is obliged to issue the confirmation no later than two weeks after moving in.

If the housing provider refuses to issue the confirmation or if it is not possible for you to receive the confirmation for other reasons, you must inform the registration office immediately.
