Abusive transfer of apartments or rental fraud

Landlords, homeowners and property managers take note!

We are your partner in cases of abusive transfer of apartments according to §45 MRG and category interest apartments to unauthorized third parties. For this purpose, we have developed two products especially for landlords.

project 45 light - status survey of existing tenants and apartment users

With our product “project 45 light”, an optimal status survey in the first step clarifies both the circumstances of existing tenants but also those of possibly unauthorized apartment users in advance. Thus, a possible claim, should it not be justified, can already be rejected at the time of the request and possible violations can be averted.
The initial surveys are primarily concerned with

  • the survey of the residents/roommates status
  • the relationship (descendants of the tenant and their descendants potentially entitled to enter) to the tenant
  • the determination of the real center of life of the descendants and their descendants
  • if necessary, additional information such as profession, income and hidden rental and ownership relationships (secondary residences, primary residences, other rented apartments)


project 45 - Ongoing monitoring to detect suspected cases of rent abuse

In addition to the status survey, the next step in our “project 45” offer is to establish a ¼ year monitoring, in which the status of the residents/roommates or the real residences of any authorized entrants and the tenant himself are continuously surveyed, in order to be able to clearly and sustainably document the change in the surveyed status. Already by this regular documentation during the existing co-relationship most suspicious cases can be localized and clarified quite clearly.

The facets of rent abuse

In a case study in which we evaluated the first 100 cases converted to this system, abuse with regard to §45 MRG could already be proven during the status survey. Most of the cases of rent abuse are defined as follows:
•    Tenants who already occupy a completely different apartment and make an unjustified profit from the object of interest
•    Tenants whose children lay claim to the apartment, although they do not even begin to live in or near the propert
•    Tenants who sublet their apartment to more than one person, without a lease agreement, and do not pay tax on the income either

Procedure for the detection of fraud

In contrast to the common practice of an ex-post verification of eligibility in the event of an incident, our approach provides for the establishment and follow-up of ex-ante documentation.
In this way, we can often uncover a case of fraud before the tenancy agreement is entered into and thus avoid a possibly long procedure. The landlord, house owner or property management is thus spared a long and costly procedure to clarify the facts and also the consequential damage of the loss of rent can be avoided in many cases.
