When to start?

Note that some providers have a 3 month notice period, therefore, read the terms and conditions right when you know that you are leaving Germany. Also, it is wise to get an appointment with the Bürgeramt/Einwohnermeldeamt to de-register. If you are living in Hamburg, this can be done at any Bürgeramt without an appointment but you need to fill in this form. Get in touch with your landlord and property manager, they usually want to have an appointment to look at the apartment some time before you leave.
