As is common in other rental agreements, a deposit of three net cold-rent payments must be paid (the net cold rent is also presented in the rental agreement in addition to the warm rent). Processing and agency fees do of course not occur.

The minimum term is 12 months. The rental agreement can then be terminated with a three months notice period.

A multimedia outlet for internet and TV is provided by the network operator. The costs for providing the multimedia outlet are already included in the internet fees. A separate phone connection is not provided.
How is the apartment furnished/equipped? Does the kitchen have tableware etc.?
An overview of the apartments’ furnishing is available here: https://hillside-wiesbaden.de/en/#apartments. The apartments do not come with tableware/kitchen utensils included due to the individual preferences of residents.

It is generally not allowed to drill holes for pictures into the wall. However, we have installed a gallery bar where you can attach your pictures.

Am I safe at “Hillside”?
Each apartment has its own intercom through which you can decide who can gain entry to the building. You can use the intercom to identify the person at the door. Furthermore, residents require a corresponding access card in order to gain access to the living areas.
Can I have visitors at my apartment?
Third parties are not permitted to stay over on a permanent or regular basis. It is not a problem to have occasional visitors over (e.g. on the weekend) however.
Who are my points of contact?
The team at Optima GmbH is responsible for rental matters. Property management together with the facility manager are responsible for the apartment handover once the rental agreement has been signed. Contact details are provided in the rental agreement. Property management is also available to answer any questions you might have during the rental period and when giving notice.
