"Ortsgemeinde" in the Meldezettel

Post by psychonaut » Wed Feb 06, 2019 4:28 pm

I'm filling in my Meldezettel in advance because my landlord doesn't live in Vienna and so I need to get his signature by post. When filling in my address, what do I write in the "Ortsgemeinde, Bundesland" field? Do I just write "Wien" or do I need to indicate the district as well? If the latter, do I write the district number, the district name, or both?

Would suggest Wien - District Name
Ie. Wien - Döbling
Vienna is like an Ikea sofa - you know you should upgrade, but why bother when it is this comfortable.

I just put Wien on mine. The Bezirk was covered by the postcode.

Thanks. Incidentally, what's the worst that can happen if my landlord doesn't mail me back the signed forms within the three-day registration deadline? Obviously I would try to hand in the forms anyway without his signature, and also bring along our signed rental contract, so would this be enough? I know that the countries of the Deutscher Sprachraum love their bureaucracy, but seems kind of unfair that they would hold a tenant responsible for his landlord's failure to sign a form.

I seriously doubt they'll do anything if you are slightly late with it. Think the three days is really intended to mean "as the earliest possible opportunity".
