Secondary residence in Berlin can be sublet to tourists

Berlin Administrative Court (VG)
Judgment of June 8, 2016
(VG 6 K 91.16, VG 6 K 151 und VG 6 K 153.16)

The Berlin Administrative Court ruled in favor of three proprietors. The district office’s decision to withhold a special permit to sublet their respective apartments was not lawful.

All three proprietors have their primary place of residence somewhere else, but frequently use their apartments in Berlin. During their absence they wanted to sublet their apartments to tourists to make some extra money. This demand is justified, ruled the court.
