5 Steps to rent a furnished apartment.
Start with step 1 right away:
Please click Search apartment and enter your rental dates, number of tenants, maximum rent etc. Then choose which Berlin district you would like to make your search in: City East or City West. You can view a list of all furnished flats available within your given time frame. Each exposé gives you detailed information about the particular apartment and plenty of photos. There is no commission fee.
Choose one or more of the available apartments that fit your needs. Then simply click the button with the crocodile's eye at the bottom of each exposé and the apartment will be added to your wishlist. If you are interested in just one apartment, please click "Request this apartment". And if you don't want to go back to the exposé- just fill in the request form and enter the object ID and your contact details.
We will answer your request and all questions regarding a specific apartment as soon as possible. We will also let you know about your chances of securing an apartment (maybe there is already another viewing etc.)
If you decide that you want to view or rent an apartment, we will ask you to proceed by filling in the application form. For your own benefit, it is useful for owners to have some basic information about prospective tenants.
After we have received your application, we will arrange a viewing for you and put you in contact with the owner. The owner has the keys and will show you the apartment. It is, of course, also possible, to rent without prior viewing.
If you don't find an apartment through Crocodilian or if you don't want to rent the apartment that you have viewed, there is no problem at all. Just let us know and that's it. There are no further obligations.
We will prepare the rental agreement which is concluded between the tenant and the owner. Crocodilian uses standard agreements. They are legally approved, fair and both in German and in English. Since we have a special online application procedure, the procedure is quick and it is very easy to fill in.
After you have concluded the rental agreement, you pay the deposit to the owner. The first month's rent is also due before you receive the keys. Please note that owners cannot accept credit cards. Usually the rent and deposit are paid via bank transfer.
Now your new life in Berlin can begin!
