Despite constant and careful maintenance and upkeep of the website, NGB Living cannot assume liability for the currency, accuracy or completeness of the information contained on the website nor for the constant availability of the website. Any maintenance work, further development or any other kinds of disturbances can lead to a temporary restriction or interruption of the website’s availability.

The liability of NGB Living for damages resulting from the direct or indirect use of the website is excluded, unless compelling legal liability owing to intent, gross negligence, injury to life, limb or health, owing to fraudulent concealment of a fault or owing to the breach of contractual basic obligations, exists.

Lease and Payment Conditions
The rooms offered on the website are to be understood in each case as a solicitation for an offer to conclude a lease. After entering the required data and subsequently submitting your legally-binding offer to conclude a lease by clicking the button “Submit a Binding Booking ”, you are bound to this offer for five days. If there are several candidates for a room, NGB Living reserves the right to assign the rooms to the most appropriate candidates at its discretion. There does not exist an entitlement on the part of the potential tenant to conclude a lease even in the absence of competitors. With the effective conclusion of a lease and additional service contracts, you are obligated to pay a deposit and the correspondingly stipulated monthly rent to NGB Living, as well as a one-time application fee including transaction costs for issuing the lease contract, providing and maintaining a premium user account throughout the rental period, providing a shared flat room in clean condition* including a complete set of bedding*.
In submitting the legally-binding offer, you agree to give your pre-authorization to be debited for the application fee including transaction costs, as well as for the deposit, up to the time that the lessor accepts or refuses your offer, but for a maximum period of five days.
By concluding a lease agreement through this website, the exclusive contact is NGB GmbH. This furthermore applies if the lease agreement is concluded between the user and a third party (for example the owner of the rented facility) with NGB Living acting as an intermediary. The due rent (current rent and deposit) is to be paid to NGB GmbH, and the Application Fee is to be paid to NGB GmbH as well. Any questions and claims shall exclusively be addressed to NGB GmbH and its support team. The payment service provider does not become party to the lease contract and shall not serve as a point of recourse to the tenant for any matters concerning duties arising out of the lease agreement.
Once tenant submits a legally-binding offer to conclude the lease contract, lessor reserves the rented facilities for tenant. Tenant pays a reservation fee in the amount of the deposit as concluded in the lease agreement.
The reservation fee will be debited from the relevant account of the tenant via the chosen means of payment upon the legally-binding request of the tenant. Upon conclusion of the lease, the lessor is entitled to convert the full amount of the reservation fee into the required deposit, divided into three instalments. If the lease is not concluded, the lessor pays back the reservation fee to the tenant. The payment of the first rent and the application fee (charged for issuing the lease contract, providing and maintaining a premium user account throughout the rental period, providing a shared flat room in clean condition* including a complete set of bedding*) must be made before the rental unit is handed over to the tenant, at the latest at the commencement of the lease. The transfer of the rent must occur without additional transfer costs for the recipient and by means of one of the agreed payment methods. The monthly total rent is to be paid in advance and without additional transfer costs for the recipient on the first working day of each month by means of one of the agreed payment methods.
