I have a question, it would be nice if any lawyer give the answer!
As an asylum seeker can anyone buy a flat or house here in Germany? Say for example: one of my friend has enough money in his country to bring it here. But after that, could he buy a flat or house in Germany? And by this way is it possible to bypass his asylum procedure?
#Can any asylum seeker buy a flat or house?
I looked it up according to what my boyfriend told me (he is a student in law) and the answer is YES. Any asylum seeker can buy a flat or house in germany but it doesn't change his status. So if he would like to buy a house he must be legally allowed to stay in germany (Visa, or anything like that). And if he buys a house but then afterwards his asylum is refused, he has no right to stay even though he bought the house.
Here is a site in german (sorry, didn't find an english one) where it is explained.
an asylum seeker can of course buy a house. Why? Because it's, among other things, a human and a fundamental right. For details see German Wikipedia, catchword "Eigentum": tinyurl.com/z2e9ukg (translation by Google translate). Fundamental rights are irrespective of one's financial situation. Asylum law in Germany is based on a fundamental right. So property can't take from my point of view any effect on the asylum procedure.
