Frequently asked Questions

FAQ

Our contracts expire automatically after 6 months. We will be happy to offer you another comparable apartment afterwards, if available. However, the apartment must be changed in any case and a new contract must be signed.

We offer shorter stays only in rare individual cases and upon request.

If you wish to terminate your contract prematurely, we will try to find a new tenant as quickly as possible. If we succeed in doing so, we will terminate your contract regardless of the specified terms or deadlines.

For utmost flexibility, we also offer open-ended contracts. These automatically extend for one month at a time (up to the maximum stay of 6 months), and can be terminated with 4 weeks' notice to the end or middle of each month.

In case you do not already have a permanent residence in Germany, you have to register at the citizens' office of the municipality of Eching (Bürgerplatz 1) within 1 week after moving in.

Please be aware that you may have to register your new residence for the "Rundfunkbeitrag" (broadcasting fee)!

If you are our guest without registering your residence here, you do not have to pay the broadcasting fee.

However, registering a residence in Germany generally triggers a duty to pay broadcasting contributions ("Rundfunkbeitrag"). Exception: You are already registered, e.g. because you already maintain another residence in Germany or you are exempt from the fee for social or health reasons.
Rundfunkbeitrag – Befreiung / Ermäßigung

The "ARD ZDF Deutschlandradio Beitragsservice" (formerly GEZ) is usually notified automatically by the registration office when the new residence is registered. Currently, the broadcasting fee is €18.36/month.
Further information, as well as the possibility to register online, can be found here:

We gladly will provide you with a confirmation of residence. For this purpose, we require a copy of your ID. 

The monthly rent includes:
(Hot) water, heating, electricity, internet, satellite TV, one parking space in the underground garage as well as free parking on the premises, free access to the common rooms, room cleaning, final cleaning etc.

If the apartment is damaged or inventory is missing after the rental period, we will deduct the incurred costs from the deposit.

Not included in the rent is the use of the washing machines and dryers (1 € per washing or drying cycle) as well as other additional services (guest bed, additional parking spaces in the underground garage, use of the charging sockets for EVs, cellar compartment).

Please note that a potentially payable broadcasting fee (Rundfunkbeitrag) is also not included in the rent!

We prefer payment by bank transfer. Cash payment is also possible. Due to the high fees for payment by credit card, we accept them only in some exceptional cases.

The deposit is to be paid until 7 days after signing the contract, but must in any case be received on our account before moving in! The rent is due monthly in advance.

This is possible in principle. However, how soon a suitable date can be found depends on the occupancy.

If your apartment is located in the building sections 10 - 10d, you will receive a code for a freely accessible locker at the entrance to Obere Hauptstr. 10. In it we will leave you the key for your apartment. We will inform you of your locker number and code before your arrival. To open the locker, please enter the code followed by the # key.

In case your apartment is located in the new buildings (apartment no. 1 to 83), you will receive an access code from us in advance, which will open both the front door and your room door. To do this, enter the code on the electronic door lock, followed by the ✓-key. We will then leave the key or transponder for you in the apartment.

Visitors are welcome to stay in your apartment for a couple of days. Please give us a short notice if you need a guest bed with bed linen or additional towels.
Visitors should not share the apartment with you for longer than one week per month. If we get the impression that your visitor is staying with you on a regular basis, we will charge the double occupancy rate.

In a genuine emergency, the police (110) or fire department (112) is your first point of contact.

Should you have been locked out, for example, or have another urgent problem (water damage, power failure, etc.), you can reach us at any time at 0179 / 215 00 85.
(Emergency number!)

If an employee is needed on site outside of office hours and your problem is self-inflicted, we charge €20.

For all other problems, you can reach us at 089 / 319 10 25 (weekdays from 9.00 to 17.00), or by email at info@boardinghaus-eching.de. Alternatively, we look forward to your visit to our office.

The exact times for the 14-day cleaning of the apartments will be announced about 3 days in advance by notice in the stairwell. On this day we ask you to leave the apartment in an orderly condition. The service staff will knock first and then - if there is no answer - enter the apartment. If the previously communicated date is inconvenient for you, it is possible to arrange another cleaning date with the service management. During the cleaning of the apartment we ask you to leave the apartment. Of course, this is especially true during the pandemic.

Apartments No. 1 - 83 are accessible by means of a ramp (with railings) and elevator directly from the underground garage. There are no door thresholds and the bathroom has a level-access shower. However, since the bathroom does not offer enough movement space for wheelchairs, our apartments are low-barrier but not barrier-free.

At present, no. However, only about 200m away from the boarding house, directly on the main road, there are several bakeries and a butcher's shop.

Yes, you are welcome to copy or print a few pages free of charge at our office during opening hours. For larger quantities, we ask for a small donation into the piggy bank.
