Rent Survey Munich

Project Description

The project aims to investigate how much tenants in Munich pay for their apartments, and who, in which neighbourhoods and for which type of apartments pays more than average rents. Furthermore the survey aims to find out, when and why tenants do not make use of their rental rights. How does this relate to satisfaction with the rental situation, the level of information about tenants' rights and options for action and the perception of their impact? Can we observe, that educational background, financial situation and experience of discrimination correlate with attitudes towards tenants' rights? What other rental and housing policy measures do tenants prefer? The results of the rent survey can provide a scientific basis for political decisions to adapt tenancy law or create better support measures where they are needed. The survey also enables the further development of scientific methods and provides insights into the unequal effects of the law, as well as reputational and regulatory risks for property companies.
