Germany's best-known solid house manufacturer Viebrockhaus and OWNR are cooperating - leasing a house as the first step towards ownership. Here you can find out how OWNR Leasing works.

The path to your own home has never been so simple. Pick one.

We buy it. You live in it.

Our solution differs from the usual models, such as buying, renting or installment plans. And opens completely new doors for you.

  1. Either choose a property from our search or send us information on your desired home if you have already visited it.

  2. With OWNR you are guaranteed to move into a newly renovated home. We take care of everything.

  3. At the end of the chosen term you decide. No matter what choice you make OWNR will support you as your partner.

  4. You decide the minimum lease term, from 24 to 48 months. So you can settle in and see if the property really meets your expectations.

Your choices

You buy the property at the fixed price.

These options allow you to live your dream property trial without having to commit to a purchase. This is especially interesting if you currently lack the necessary equity to purchase your dream property.

Multiple benefits. Your advantages thanks to OWNR.

We’re sure you have a few questions…and we have the answers right here:

What do I have to consider during a viewing?

You know your schedule best yourself, so arrange a viewing appointment directly with the broker or owner. The major brokerages know OWNR, know that we will buy the property for you and that the financing is secured. However, if your counterpart has not heard of OWNR, they can contact us directly.

Since these are buy-to-let properties, the broker and/or owner will pay more attention to the property features during the inspection than you would know from rental property inspections.

Who takes care of the renovations?

We do! More specifically, we work with local suppliers to install a brand-new kitchen and bathroom fittings as standard and to take care of other renovations as required. We assume all the costs and you don’t have to do a thing.

 

What are the details on the purchase option?

As an OWNR customer, you have a purchase option at the end of the minimum term. The exact purchase price is already determined in the leasing contract, which gives you enough time to get to know your home and to plan the financing. The purchase price is calculated from the original purchase price paid by OWNR plus renovation costs and any brokerage fee incurred as well as a price inflation. You as our customer benefit from our ability to negotiate a lower purchase price, lower broker’s fees and lower refurbishment costs as a professional buyer. Because of this advantage, combined with our banking relationships, you should save money on the purchase of your home with OWNR. 

You decide at the end of the minimum term whether you want to use the purchase option.

What is a minimum lease term?

This is the minimum amount of time you spend living in the property. With OWNR, you can choose between three minimum terms: 24 months, 36 months and 48 months. During this time, you cannot terminate the lease contract, a necessary safeguard on our part given that we bought the property for you to live in.

 

What does the leasing contract look like?

Our leasing contracts are valid for an indefinite period subject to the provisions of German tenancy law. Our contracts differ from a standard rental agreement in that they contain a minimum lease term – during which neither party may terminate the contract – and a purchase option that may be triggered at the end of the minimum lease term.

 

What does the OWNR leasing rate consist of?

Transparency is essential in our business. That’s why we’re always upfront about what goes into your lease: 

  • A monthly basic leasing rate 

  • Estimated operating costs (refuse collection, building maintenance, etc.) 

  • Utilities (heating, hot water, etc.) 

What are the benefits of the OWNR leasing model?

There are three main benefits: cost savings, security and flexibility. You choose where you want to live from our portfolio of homes or the general market; we buy the property; you move in based on an advantageous lease agreement; and you have the option to buy after the minimum lease term. Even if you choose not to buy, you can keep living there for as long as you like. No landlords, no uncertainty, no dead-end rental situation.
