With the growing requirements for mobility and flexibility of employees in everyday working life the demand for temporary housing concepts has also been increasing. A furnished apartment or a furnished room - either from private or commercial hosts - can pose an alternative to a costly hotel room. However, living comfort and quality standards with regard to amenities and furnishings can vary extremely depending on the provider. Particularly when staying for occupational reasons one should consider the safety and security aspects in a furnished apartment:
How easy is it to obtain the key to the apartment? Do the furnished apartments meet all legal requirements with regard to fire safety regulations? Apart from you who else has access to this apartment? Is there legal certainty should there be unexpected changes regarding the length of stay? Who is responsible for potential repair works? Can a professional invoice be issued? You don´t need to worry about these questions when staying at a serviced apartment, there you can just move in and feel at home.
