New right of first refusal now!

The decision of the Federal Administrative Court of November 9th, 2021 renders the municipal right of first refusal useless as an instrument against displacement. This is unacceptable! In Berlin alone, tenants in over 9.000 flats are acutely threatened. That is why we have joined forces with other initiatives and housing associations in the initiative „New right of first refusal now!“ More on this under ‚Press‘.

We mourn the death of Arslan Demir

Our longtime neighbour Arslan Demir passed away on May 26, 2021. We are deeply saddened by the sudden loss of this warm-hearted and genuine person. Hermannstraße 48 was home to his carpentry business as well as his apartment. Arslan Demir was a very sociable and enriching part of our neighbourhood and community. May he rest in peace.

New press release

The housing situation of the people in the factory building at H48 (and elsewhere!) is particularly precarious. Scroll down to our „press release“ section to find out more.

The uncertainty continues…

Both the new buyer and the previous owner have filed an objection against the right of first refusal (Vorkaufsrecht). This is now being examined by the district – and the uncertainty continues…

*The picture says: „The struggle continues, our fight continues: Buyer and previous owner file an objection against preemption.“



Yesterday, our first house meeting (in the digital space) took place. We informed each other on the topic of Vorkaufsrecht, updated each other on what’s happening, and discussed further steps that will now be taken in various workgroups.

You shall hear from us!
