    3. Arrange to have your surface mail sent either to the institute (especially if you're going abroad; then we forward it to you once a month) or to your new place of residence, within Germany: Post offices provide this service for a period of approx. 6 months. The necessary form called ``Nachsendeauftrag" is available at the Post office or here: (fee approx. 12 euros).

You can also use this form which the landlord has to fill in and sign.
