Description of location:
The apartment is located in Birminghamstraße in an urban area with mixed housing - high-rise buildings stand side by side with row houses and apartment buildings. Birminghamstraße is a side street to Mainzer Landstraße at the level of the Nied-Schwanheim traffic junction (Mainbrücke).
Public transport connection:
Birminghamstraße 91 is about a ten-minute walk from the Nied S-Bahn station (S1 and S2). Even closer is the Stadtbahn stop on Mainzer Landstraße (tram lines 21+11). The journey time to Frankfurt's main train station is about half an hour.
In addition, there are bus connections.
Connection to traffic routes by car:
It takes about 15-20 minutes to cross the Schwanheim Bridge to Rhein-Main Airport. Only 5-7 minutes to downtown Frankfurt. Also approx. 15 minutes to the motorway junction (A3/A5).
General noise level of location: Quiet
Schools, kindergardens ect.: Two day care centers in the immediate vicinity. Elementary school three minutes (Panorama School).
Shopping facilities: REWE 250m, more in the area
Type of Condo: Apartment
In which floor (groundfloor=0): 3
Total number of floors with GF and possibly DG: 7
Approx. living area: 73.00 m²
Source or reference to the floor space information: The living space was determined by an expert by measurement on 11.4.2022. It deviates by 3 m² from the information in the declaration of division. However, the declaration of partition does not state the living area, but the "dimension", so it can be assumed that the floor area of the loggia was fully taken into account here. The annual statement is based on the information in the declaration of division. This must be pointed out when renting out the property in order to avoid problems with the apportionment formula for heating costs. The heating bill refers to 76m² of floor space. (Germany, why are you so complicated.....)
The inaccuracies of the usable areas on which the heating cost statement is based were pointed out at the owners' meeting of 11.12.2019 and a resolution was proposed to commission an expert to determine the "heatable areas". However, this has been rejected.
Owner used: Still....but it will be cleared when it is handed over (moving abroad)

Massive or extensive refurbishments (year): In 2017, a resolution was passed to terminate all contracts with the district heating supplier and to set up a mobile heating station with Mainova instead. In 2018, it was decided to cancel this resolution and instead conclude a heat supply contract (contracting). This was then also implemented, To this extent, the information in the energy certificate (from 2018) about district heating is no longer correct. Instead, a gas-fired central heating system has been installed in building 89 for both buildings 89 and 91.
At the same meeting, the earlier decision to have the apartments remeasured on the basis of usable floor space because of the distribution of heating costs was rejected.
