Moving to a New Place in Leipzig
How you go about finding a place to live in Leipzig entirely depends on whether you're interested in renting or owning a place. The processes of both are quite different.
- If you are renting: rental leases generally require a 3-month notice period. However, the notice period can be reduced to 1 month in certain special cases, especially if the apartment is furnished or located in a highly desirable area. In order to avoid double renting, it is sometimes necessary to give notice even before finding a new apartment. When you're moving to a new country, you should start organizing your move as soon as possible. By adequately preparing for your move, you'll have more time for apartment hunting in Leipzig, which is a necessary activity if you want to find housing in Germany.

Most of the time, it takes 3 to 6 months to obtain the necessary financing and to draw up the deeds of sale required for the change of ownership. Having British citizenship will add an extra layer of complexity to the process that you need to be prepared for.
Whichever choice you make, you need to make sure you're paying attention to your finances. During the first few months after a move, your finances can become tight, and your lodging will take up the bulk of your costs. By appropriately measuring your costs, you'll be able to properly finance yourself during the first few crucial months, which will be pivotal in a successful relocation to your new home in Germany.
