Rules and recommendations

Real estate sale and purchase

Real estate sale and purchase is allowed. Personal real estate viewings are allowed to take place again. During such a viewing, all participants should let their respirators put on. Furthermore, it is advisable to ventilate the premises regularly. Nevertheless, you should still prefer online viewings if possible.

If you planned a personal viewing but do not feel well now, you should rather postpone it.


If you are not in isolation, you can move.

During moving, you should adhere to elevated hygienic measures. Although no special rules apply anymore, we still recommend especially having your respirator or surgical mask put on while in contact with persons not being your household member, sanitizing your hands and maintaining social distancing. As a preventative measure, you should ventilate your new real estate regularly as well.
