I am living in a rent apartment in Germany, my contract is about to expire and I also wish to move to another one. I haven't got any kind of insurance yet for this apartment. I have heard of tenants being given a huge settlement bill by the land-lord siting as the cost of repairing the apartment after they move out. Therefore I would like to know
- if it makes sense to purchase a house insurance at this time when I am about to leave the apartment and am about to start my notice period
- What will be covered in the insurance (eg. if the landlord sites any damage will the insurance company cover it?)
. The apartment is in good condition and since I moved it no damage is done. However since I didn't know much about the rules and regulations at the time of moving in , I did a rookie mistake of not ensuring that there was a proof of where there were cracks in the floor tiles, or how some heating equipment was not installed correctly.
