Accepting an apartment

When you find a suitable home

Apartment offer

Accepting an apartment happens in stages. A notification of a potential apartment offer will be sent to the applicant, either by email or as a text message, depending on which you have chosen. Apartment offers are usually sent 4–6 weeks before the apartment is needed. The actual apartment offer can be viewed in the applicant’s service. You can only accept or refuse an apartment offer via the applicant’s service.

After approving an offer and sign a rental agreement electronically or at the TYS office.

Accepting an apartment offer

When an apartment offer has been made to you, you will receive a notification of this to your email. The actual apartment offer and its additional information can be viewed in the applicant’s service.

Read the apartment offer through carefully. For example, make sure that the apartment’s layout and its rent are suitable for you. The apartment offer will be valid for four full days.

You can accept an apartment offer after you have first confirmed that you consent to the terms and conditions of the rental agreement as well as the rules of conduct. An accepted apartment offer is always binding.

Security deposit

As of 1.1.2020, new leases will not be subject to a security deposit. However, if you have a payment default, a security deposit equalling three month’s rent will be charged.

Rejecting an apartment offer

You can also reject the housing offer through the applicant’s service. A maximum of two housing offers will be made to the same applicant, but priority is given to those applicants who have not yet received any housing offers. When rejecting an offer, please add information to the rejection that you want your application to stay valid and wait for a second apartment offer. If you do not react to the apartment offer, the offer will be automatically rejected and your application will be deleted.

If the apartment offered to you is not suitable, please edit your application at the same time. This way you can ensure that the new offer will better suit your needs
