More Bureaucracy When Moving to New Address

Es muss alles seine Ordnung haben - Everything must have its order

More bureaucracy awaits you if you are planning to move after November 1st within Germany. As if moving in itself wasn’t complicated enough, you will also have to cope with a bit more bureaucracy. The new landlord has to issue you a “Vermieterbescheinigung” which proves that you are really moving there. You will now have to have this certificate in order to register the new address with the Registration Office (Einwohnermeldeamt). You have to register at the office within two weeks after moving to a new address. Failure to do so can cost you and the landlord up to 1,000 Euros respectively.

The certificate has already been in use until some ten years ago, and is now being introduced again in order to prevent people registering at a false address.
