How satisfied are you with your living environment? When did your landlord last increase your rent - and how quickly does he react if there is a problem? And would you really like to move if you could find an affordable alternative?
DIE ZEIT and ZEIT ONLINE would like to know that from you. Housing for rent is killing many people these days; In the meantime, it is even driving them onto the streets. For example, in Berlin, where there have been several protests against high rents this year and the Senate has now decided on a Mietendeckel. Or in Karlsruhe, where students are reportedly camping these days on the university campus, to draw attention to housing shortages and skyrocketing rents.
With your help, we want to find out how widespread the problems really are and how things are arranged between tenants and landlords. Significantly more than half of German households live for rent and are therefore affected by this topic.
Much has already been reported about price increases for new contracts. But how are tenants and tenants who have been living in their apartment for several years? Do you stay in your current apartment because you are shying away from a much more expensive new lease? Or are you afraid that you can no longer afford your apartment soon? We developed this questionnaire together with the market research team of the Hamburg company Statista. Statista will weight the previously anonymized answers and make representative statements for all of Germany. We would be delighted if you completed the following questionnaire - even if it takes a few minutes. Of course, we only use your information for this evaluation.
