Temporary living: What is temporary living?

Temporary living is a term that actually describes exactly what you might think at first: you rent an apartment for a limited period of time. Renting an apartment for a limited period of time offers many advantages, especially if you do not want to live or reside permanently in the place or city where you are looking for an apartment for a limited period of time. If you decide in such a case for a classical lease with an indefinite term, this can quickly become expensive for you and you additionally constrict. The second alternative - to rent an expensive hotel room for your stay - is not only anything but inexpensive, but also involves many compromises in terms of comfort.

Temporary living is a relatively simple living concept: a landlord provides a furnished apartment for a limited period of time. The rental is for a limited period or with flexible extension options and the tenant benefits from a fully furnished apartment - exactly for the period in which he needs this accommodation. Sofa, table, bed and many other equipment elements are available for temporary living and are therefore rented with the apartment. As the furnishing concepts vary from apartment to apartment, you can therefore choose a furnished apartment for a limited period, which is furnished according to your taste. At the end of the agreed rental period, you simply move out and of course have no obligation to look for a new tenant. The most important aspects of temporary living are summarized here:

Living as a tenant: 5 advantages that speak for temporary living

Those who rent furnished benefit from numerous advantages. The five most important ones are presented below.

Advantage 1: Flexible contract terms for leases

Unlimited leases with a three-month notice period are the rule in Germany. However, this long commitment to a flat or apartment is no longer compatible with today’s lifestyles of many people. That is because more and more people want or have to live and work site-independent. Temporary living suits these demands very well: With this concept, you only use furnished living for a limited period of time – completely without any long term commitments or adhesion contracts.

Advantage 2: Quick decisions and easy rental

If you rent a furnished temporary housing, you can decide between different properties at very short term notice. Furthermore time-consuming and often unpleasant apartment inspections are no longer necessary- you simply decide on a furnished apartment from our range and sign a tenancy agreement after you have provided us with the necessary documents. Finding and renting a temporary housing is therefore just as easy as booking a hotel room.

Advantage 3: Best location for small money

Usually, the advantage of hotel rooms is, that you can decide on the best location and for example benefit from short commutes to university, work or public transportation. Our furnished temporary apartments also generally offer a top location – whether in the city center, the railway station or at other favourable locations. Just have a look at the map of the city in which you are looking for a furnished apartment and decide on individual location factors.

Advantage 4: Full equipment according to your taste

Would you like to rent temporary furnished housing and benefit from the luxury of the superior furnishings? Nothing is easier than that: You can always view the equipment of each offer for furnished properties and therefore convince yourself of the quality and style of the furnishings as well as the substance of the property. Live part-time in an apartment or house that fully suits your taste.

Advantage 5: Relocation costs are reduced to a minimum

Your employer often sends you to various locations throughout Germany and you have to live in Berlin for several months, for example, before you finally move on to Stuttgart after a stay of several weeks in Cologne? If you have to take your whole household with you for the short rental period it can cost a pretty penny. Because our temporary furnished housings are fully equipped, you save the expenses for the removal van and also a lot of time and nerves.

Temporary rentals: For whom are furnished properties recommended?

Temporary living can be worthwhile for many different groups of people:

  Furnished temporary rentals
Project members
Fitters/time workers
College students
Insured events

Table 2: Groups of people for whom furnished living may be worthwhile


Project members

Anyone who is an executive or who regularly works on new projects throughout Germany is always at home at different locations. To ensure that you still feel secure and in good hands, furnished temporary housings provide a feeling of comfort. Therefore, after a stressful working day in a foreign city you can relax and don’t have to spend the night in an impersonal hotel room.


Fitters/time workers

Anyone who is employed as a craftsman or temporary worker on large construction projects must expect their own employment contracts to expire at all times or knows from the outset how many months their employment is designed to last. Those who always rent a new apartment or afford a hotel room for this period, have to expect high costs in the long term. In our temporary housings you may not only be able to move in alone, but you may also be able to move in with partners from your team and save money.


College students

Students that are new to a city often find it difficult to find a suitable apartment. All the better if you are a freshman and find an accommodation in a furnished apartment for a limited period of time: This allows you to focus on your studies from the first day of the semester and to search for an apartment or living community in peace.



Would you like to move to a city like Nuremberg, Aachen or Ulm permanently? In this case living in the new city on a temporary basis is of course no permanent solution. However, for a start this living concept proves to be highly recommendable: From your furnished temporary housing you can get to know the new city in peace, look around for suitable rental apartments and thus find the right apartment for and indefinite period of time sooner or later.


Insured events

Do you have a broken pipe in your house, the heating is defective in the deepest winter or private reasons make a temporary move out of your own four walls recommendable? In this case temporary living provides a short term and maximum flexible interim solution: Stay at your place of residence and come to rest in a relaxed atmosphere.

What types of temporary living do exist?

Because temporary living has established itself as a particularly modern, individual and flexible form of living, there are now various variants. In addition to a fully equipped room, you can also rent a comfortable furnished apartment for a limited period of time or sign a rental contract for a furnished house for the whole family. Here we present the individual possibilities to you.

Rent a furnished room for a limited time

Renting a furnished room for a limited time is the easiest and at the same time cheapest variant of temporary living. With a furnished room in Cologne, Augsburg, Leipzig or Erfurt you can comfortably start your stay in a new city. A distinction must be made between a furnished room and a furnished 1-room apartment: The furnished room usually consists of a single room, possibly equipped with a refrigerator or a small cooking facility. Usually the bathroom is shared with other occupants of the accommodation, which is also often the case for the kitchen.


Renting a furnished apartment for a limited time

A furnished apartment can be as individual as your personal real estate wishes. Furnished apartments can be rented as 1-room apartments, as 2-room apartments or as 3- or 4-room apartments. The rental contract states how you may use the rooms and what obligations you have as a temporary tenant. You can select your furnished apartment by your own criteria and subsequently live in the property alone or with your family. Whether balcony, fitted kitchen, shower room or garage parking space – the criteria you can define before renting a furnished apartment are versatile.

Renting a furnished house for a limited time

Being able to rent a furnished house seems to be very recommendable, especially for families. Whether you are returning from abroad, an expatriate or moving to a new town – a furnished house offers space for the whole family. Decide for yourself which aspects are particularly important to you so that you, your partner and your children feel comfortable: Large children’s rooms, two bathrooms or a spacious living/dining area in which the whole family comes together – in this way you can make the start at your new place of residence easier for you and your children from the very beginning. Depending on the equipment of the rented furnished house there is also a garden with garden furniture as well as additional extras available. By the way: A furnished house for the whole family is not only worthwhile if you are moving, but also, for example, if your home is about to undergo extensive renovation work. Treat yourself and your loved ones peace and relaxation far away from construction noise – in your new temporary home.


Furnished temporary living: What should you keep in mind?

If you want to use the concept of temporary living for yourself, you should consider various aspects. This particularly applies to offers that you do not make use of via our service. Trust the careful examination of the offer by the employees of our agencies. We will show you what you should consider when renting a furnished apartment:




Rental Period


Equipment & Extras


Legal Framework Conditions


Rental contracts


Costs of a furnished apartment

The costs of a furnished apartment or the amount of rent for temporary living must be communicated in a transparent and binding manner. This means that you usually have to expect a fixed price. While electricity, heating and water are billed separately for classic tenancies, this is not the case for temporary living. After all, the changing tenants cause different consumption costs. For you as a temporary tenant it is therefore important to not only agree on the rental costs but also on the additional costs.

Rental period for temporary living

Those who opt for temporary living, want to benefit from flexible contract terms and shortened notice periods. Therefore you should pay attention to the contract terms of the respective offer when making your selection. Not all furnished properties have the same minimum rental period: While some apartments can already be rented for one month, others have a minimum rental period of three months.

Equipment and extras of the furnished apartment

Do you need a fast and reliable internet connection in your temporary apartment? Do you wish for a balcony or a garden in which you can relax to your heart’s content during your temporary stay? If so, you should closely inspect the details in the description of the respective furnishing features of a furnished apartment. The properties in our offer are all checked by our experienced staff so that you can rely 100% on the descriptions in the advertisements.


Paying a deposit

Nowadays, if you rent a property you usually have to pay a deposit. This also applies for temporary living. The deposit serves the landlord as a security deposit as well as a reserve in the case damaged is caused by the tenant during the rental period. Usually the deposit depends on the amount of the monthly rent and is payed before or at beginning of rental period.

Rental contract for temporary living

Also for temporary living, involved parties usually have to sign a rental contract. In some aspects, this differs from a standard rental contract. In order to ensure that everything is legally correct in this context, we offer our landlords the opportunity to make use of our certified sample rental agreement. We prepare this individually for signature.


Following details should be included in a rental contract for temporary living:

  • Amount of rental and additional costs
  • Duration of the rental contract
  • Possibly the inventory list regarding equipment
  • Possibly the deposit amount
  • Possibly basic rules such as pets, smoking, etc..
