When you arrive in Bremen as a refugee, during your first months you can find accommodation in a “Erstaufnahmeeinrichtung” ( …).
Later you will have the opportunity to look for a flat. Therefore a list of different institutions will help you during your searching process and may give you further information concerning accommodation in Bremen.
In some cases you may also ask financial support to pay your rent. You can find more information about financial support in the category “Finanzen“.
What do I need to keep in mind when looking for a flat?
Before looking for a flat, you should ask concrete information about the permitted size and costs for your flat.
When you will have found a flat, the “Sozialamt” (institution for social services) will pay a part of the rent as well as the “Kaution” (deposit), companionship fees, heating costs and running costs.
To get that financial aid you need to make a request at the “Jobcenter” or the Sozialamt.
What does "Kaution" (deposit) mean?
The “Kaution” is a financial insurance for the flat owner, that you have to pay when moving in a new flat.
You will be paid back this amount of “Kaution” when moving out of the flat and the flat is in a good state. Normally the Kaution will be the amount of two or three monthly rents.
Refugees usually do not have to pay a Kaution.
What do I need to keep in mind concerning the rental agreement?
Read the rental agreement carefully.
If you have any problems or questions you should address yourself to a Beratungsstelle.
What is a "Hausordnung" (house rules)?
Almost every house has a so-called “Hausrdnung”, that you agree to when signing your rental agreement.
The Hausordnung consists of different rules for the living together of all occupants.
These rules may vary depending on the house you live in but in general you have to respect sleep from 10 pm to 6 am.
What do I have to keep in mind when moving?
When you found a new flat and have a personal adress, you have two weeks time to inform the appropriate Meldebehörde (registry office) in your commune. Ask the flat owner to give you the written confirmation that you will need for the registry office.
