Many aspiring entrepreneurs assume that nothing stands in the way of registering a business with a good business idea and the required start-up capital. But the business registration itself can very quickly turn out to be problematic and have far-reaching consequences, as the following case by the Federal Court of Justice shows.
After the business registration at the home address led to an immediate termination by the landlord, the Federal Court of Justice dealt with the matter. In the further course, he made it explicitly clear that the registration of a business in one's own rented apartment is a unilateral change to the private rental contract, according to which termination without notice is legal (further information on the source: click here) .¹
It is important to note that this risk does not only exist for newcomers, but also for all entrepreneurs, businesses or freelancers who have already been registered in this way. The landlord is not limited to a period of time, but can invoke his right at any time.
Of course, this situation can be prevented with certain solutions.
On the one hand there is the possibility to talk to the landlord. It should be noted here that one should be prepared for any eventuality. In the event that he agrees, it is advisable to request written confirmation.
There is also the option of outsourcing the business to a registered office or to a business center offers a summonable business address. There is no general answer as to which of the two variants is the right one in this context, as this depends on the individual requirements and circumstances.
However, outsourcing important everyday office tasks offers many advantages. Apart from the significantly lower costs, a virtual office provides the virtuality of professional secretarial functions with an optional telephone service and a service that includes the acceptance and forwarding of letters and parcels. In addition, if several people are founded, the business address is clearly regulated so that customers can be received without any problems.
In this way, business and private matters are separated.
