Storage facilities

There is dedicated storage space in apartment blocks for outdoor sports equipment, such as bikes and skis, and there is often room to store prams and pushchairs too.

The outdoor equipment storage area is not intended for storing children’s toys and nor is it a playground. It is in everyone’s best interests to ensure the doors to the storage spaces are kept locked.

There is often a separate storage space for each apartment, intended for personal possessions, in apartment blocks. The doors are equipped for use with a padlock, which tenants should purchase themselves. If your building features separate cold storage facilities in the basement, you must also provide a lock for your storage space. Petrol canisters and other flammable liquids and gases must not be stored indoors (e.g. gas canisters for gas-powered barbecues).

The storage space for personal possessions and the apartment usually have the same number. You may not take over empty storage spaces on your own initiative under any circumstances. If you cannot find your own storage space, submit a defect notification.

Apartments in terraced houses usually have their own cold storage space connected to the building. Items susceptible to moisture damage, such as furniture, clothes, and items that cannot withstand cold must not be stored in these storage facilities.
