Service for you

The rent index provides you with an overview of local comparative rents for apartments and single-family homes in Erlangen. The information makes it easier for parties to rental agreements to make decisions on rent matters and is intended to prevent disputes and court proceedings as far as possible. In this way, it contributes to an objective discussion of rental prices.

You can use the rent index to determine the local comparative rent. It is not used to set prices. The local comparative rent only includes the pure net cold rent in euros per square meter. "Operating or ancillary costs" are not included. The basic net rent is calculated as a function of the living space. The influence of the type, furnishings, condition and location of the apartments and single-family homes is taken into account when determining the local comparative rent with percentage mark-ups and mark-downs.

Scientific background

The rent index was prepared in accordance with recognized scientific principles and approved as a qualified rent index by the Erlangen City Council at its meeting on 28 October 2023. It replaces the previously valid rent index 2021 as of this date.

The Erlangen rent index 2021 was compiled on the basis of a representative empirical survey in the period from January to May 2021 on the basis of new contracts and rent increases over the last six years (February 2015 up to and including January 2021). In accordance with the provisions of the German Civil Code (BGB), these results were updated with the help of a new survey of tenant households in the period from January to May 2023. The 2023 rent index is valid until it is updated in 2025.

Legal permissibility of rent increases

The rent index makes no statement on the legal admissibility of a rent increase request (existing rents) or the legal admissibility of the rent level for re-letting (rent cap).
