The housing market in Munich is very professionally run and regulated and as long as you are willing to invest a little time, finding decent accommodation in Munich is not as difficult as it was just a few years ago.
In case of partnership, people who have signed the lease are the only legal tenants, and therefore are responsible for the accommodation (it is possible to let the landlord know of this partnership if officialised by the town hall for example).
For people wishing to live in Munich for a limited period, for work purposes or other reasons, there are solutions like furnished flats, aparthotels or flathotels.
You can visit the following websites for more information:
