Germany: Anmeldung


What is it? 

The Wohnungsgeberbestätigung is the registration document all tenants in Germany need in order to register their address (Anmeldung) at their local civil office (often called Bürgeramt or Bürgerbüro). This registration is mandatory and individual. Each tenant is responsible for carrying on with this registration as soon as possible. 


How to get it? 

This document will be sent to you by Habyt automatically on the first day of the contract. All you need to do is download it and register your address from there. 


Spain: El Padron


What is it? 

This is a local certificate every tenant receives after registering their address in Spain.


How to get it? 

In order to register your address, you will need to follow these steps: 

  1. Download your registration form “Hoja padronal” and fill out.
  2. Send the filled out form to us via the Members Portal or Mobile App. We will send it back to you stamped and signed.
  3. Make an appointment: Request an appointment at an “Oficina de Atención a la Ciudadanía-Línea Madrid” through this online form.
  4. Apply for registration: Go to your appointment. The application is made in person.



If you are asked to show any additional documents, please get in touch with us by creating a Help request through your Habyt Member portal or your Habyt App using the category “Move-in” and the subcategory “Documents'' and share a sample of the document you would need already filled out so we can sign it for you (if possible).
