Main steps for selling a property in Berlin

Which documents do you need to sell an apartment in Berlin?

Selling an apartment in Berlin (or any residential property in Germany) implies the upstream preparation of a sale documentation file.

Firstly, property documents could be organized into 2 main categories:

  • Informative documents: intended to provide potential buyers with detailed information about the monthly costs, the building management and the apartment itself (i.e. size, location in the building, share of community costs, energy consumption...).
  • Notarization documents: intended to provide the notary with necessary information to process the purchase and sale agreement.

In order to go ahead with listing and selling your apartment in Berlin, the main following documents would be required:

  • Recent proof of ownership
  • Declaration of division of the building
  • Last 3 years owners meeting minutes
  • Current economic plan (HOA fees)
  • Rental contract (for tenanted apartments)
  • Energy consumption certificate
  • Area situation plan
  • Floor plan

When you sell your apartment in Berlin with our agency, we offer to prepare you the sale documentation file at no extra costs.

This includes contacting all the parties involved (i.e. your apartment and building manager), processing the information in the documents and validating the documentation file. In one word, we take in charge all the paperwork related to your property sale.
