The Berlin housing market is changing. Environmental protection areas, rental price brakes, rent caps and the planned distribution ban (which could at least for the moment still be prevented) lead to a steady shortage of the rental apartment market with increased sales of condominiums at the same time. Those who are currently looking for an apartment in Berlin often have no choice but to buy. It is not to be expected that this will change anytime soon.
This is usually not a bad decision. Viewed individually, wealth accumulation begins that would otherwise not occur. Overall, the owner quota in the population is increasing.
Buying a home is accompanied by a multitude of questions, economic, tax and legal. Since the sums involved are considerable, many first-time buyers feel insecure, and the need for orientation is correspondingly great. At the same time, there is time pressure due to the presence of several interested parties or tight deadlines set by the broker. Who knows what he's doing has a clear advantage here. The number of requests for advice on this has increased significantly recently.
RA Scheidacker, himself the owner of some real estate, will give a comprehensive overview of the legal issues associated with buying a home in this seminar. Based on whether the purchase should be an investment or for personal use, we will discuss, among other things:
- which documents should you look at, what do you have to pay attention to?
- when do other consultants have to be called in and if so, which ones?
- what steps should you take in what order when buying and financing and why not different?
- when does who get his money, with and without broker?
- you don't just buy an apartment, you become part of a community of owners. What does that mean, what should you know?
- In the case of rented apartments that are bought for personal use: is it possible to terminate the contract for personal use and, if so, with what time limit? How can I see whether the tenant has a right of first refusal or whether and for how long a blocking period applies?

There is an opportunity to ask questions during the seminar, which can then be answered on an ad hoc basis. The number of participants is limited (if the maximum number of participants is exceeded, registration is no longer technically possible, but this is not a problem up to this limit).
With the seminar, we are targeting people interested in buying a home as well as all people who are advised or involved in this process.
