For Tenants

How does the booking process work?

In order to make a reservation valid, send us a scan of your passport. Then we will then prepare your contract and send it to you.

After you received it, please return it signed within one week. Along with the signed contract, also send us a proof that you have already transferred the first month’s rent.

Explanation: We take this of course as the first month rent and no booking fee or whatever. It is a security for us that you will „attend“ and mean it seriously. It happened several times in the past, that potential tenants signed the contract and not showed up. If that happens again, we at least have a compensation for the first month and can then start to advertise the room again.

You will find all the banking info (also for the deposit that has to be paid 2 weeks prior moving in) in your contract then. We use the European IBAN system but you can also use transaction applications like for example.

After we received the signed contract and the proof of payment from you, we will block the room for you and then it is yours 🙂

How does CoLivi choose their tenants?

Usually all of our tenants are internationals and wether students on Ersamus or working as young professionals. We choose them very wisely and check if they all match. We have never heard any complain yet (we also have whatsapp groups with all of the flats mates and a lot of fun). Since we run several places in Vienna and we have more than 20 tenants, we also have frequent events with all of the community and we go out. You will love it 🙂

What is the minimal rental period?

All of our CoLivis can be booked from 3 months on (minimum booking duration). The contracts can be quitted within a 2 months notice to the 1st and the 15th of each calendar month.

What are the move-in and move-out dates?

The move-in dates for our rooms are always the 1st and the 15th of each calendar month.

The move-out dates are always the 14th and the last day of each calendar month.

When do I have to pay the rent?

The first rent has to be paid at least 2 weeks before the moving-in.

This is according to the payment of the deposit and guarantees, that everything will be safe for you and CoLivi.

All ongoing payments are monthly and have to be paid the latest on the last day of the previous month.

How can I pay the rent?

You will find online-payment links for every rent (monthly).

Alternatively you can transfer it with your name and street name and room number to:

  • Name: Bernhard Bauer
  • IBAN: DE03100110012621082738

How much is the deposit?

The deposit for one of our CoLivis is 1.000€ and has to be paid before moving in. When you move in, you will check everything with an inspection list (checklist for all the equipment) and you will contact us if there is something missing that has to be replaced. After you move out, we will check the room and you will get the full deposit returned within 30 days if everything is ok with the room.

We will also do this check when you move out. You will get your deposit back after 30 days of your move out date.

Can I visit the room before I make a booking?

All of our flats and CoLivis are usually fully rented out. Our business model addresses to people that are coming to Vienna and that want to find a room very easily without having to look at several physically.

Also we want to keep it simple for the tenants to not be bothered with visits since it is their private sphere and they pay for it.

What happens after the booking?

After you made your booking, we will send you the contract and all the payment information via E-Mail. You fill in your details, and return the signed contract (within a 3 day period after you received it) with a scan of your passport to After we received the contract, your booking will be valid and the room blocked for you.

Further information you will find at the official website of Vienna.

How can I de-register my residence in Vienna?

Why is there only cold water in the flat?

Usually that is a problem related to a low pressure (below 1 Bar) in the Combi Boiler that can be fixed very easily. This video shows you how you can easily repressure the boiler by yourself.
