  7. Landlord entering apartment without permission

    Are you a member of the Mieterverein? If not I would suggest you arrange an appointment there as soon as possible. Your  Landlady is breaking all the rules in the book, what she is doing is illegal.   “Streitthema Schlüssel Der Vermieter muss einem neuen Mieter sämtliche Schlüssel aushändigen. Nach Darstellung des Deutschen Mieterbundes (DMB) gehören nicht nur Haus- und Wohnungsschlüssel dazu, sondern auch Keller, Briefkasten und Garagen-Schlüssel. Der Vermieter darf auch nicht „für alle Fälle“ einen Schlüssel zur Wohnung behalten. Überlässt ein Mieter dem Vermieter freiwillig ein Exemplar, darf dieser dennoch nur mit Einwilligung des Bewohners die Wohnung betreten.”   Besichtigungsrecht Besichtigungsrecht des Vermieters   “Will der Vermieter die Wohnung neu vermieten oder das Haus verkaufen, darf er die Wohnung zusammen mit Interessenten oder einem Makler betreten und besichtigen. Der Mieter muss die Miet- oder Kaufinteressenten aber nur in seine Wohnung lassen, wenn sie zusammen mit dem Vermieter kommen. In jedem Fall muss der Vermieter die Besichtigung aber rechtzeitig ankündigen. Bei dringenden Handwerkerarbeiten können 24 Stunden Vorlauf genügen. Im Regelfall ist aber von mehreren Tagen auszugehen. Das Ablesen der Heizkostenverteiler kündigen die Wärmemessdienstunternehmen 10 bis 14 Tage vorher an. Grundsätzlich muss der Vermieter nach Darstellung des Deutschen Mieterbundes auf eine Berufstätigkeit des Mieters Rücksicht nehmen. Besichtigungstermine – insbesondere mit Kauf- und Mietinteressenten – müssen mindestens 14 Tage vorher vereinbart werden. Sind dem Mieter derartige Termine nur ab 19.00 Uhr oder an Samstagen möglich, ist das zu berücksichtigen. Dauer- und Massenbesichtigungen müssen Mieter auch in diesen Fällen nicht akzeptieren. Es reicht auch, wenn sie sich einen Besichtigungstermin in der Woche für maximal drei bis vier Interessenten frei halten.”   https://mieterverein-stuttgart.de/   As Jeba suggested you could install a camera in your apartment. You could also print out the above text and pin it on your door. Allowing strange people into your flat in your absence is a no go.   When people are being shown around your apartment you could comment on all the things that you Landlady hasn’t seen to in your flat. You could say something like, Oh don’t forget to inform them about  the tap that has been dripping since...    have you told them about the mold in the bathroom or shall we show them it together?  People like your Landlady need to be taught a lesson so that this sort of behaviour will stop.

  21. What are you currently reading?

  22. hi everyone,   so just a quick question about German job laws which im finding hard to answer myself - my employer is temporarily closing for 2/3 weeks in march for a refurbishment, but is refusing to offer any financial support for myself and the majority of my colleagues during this time to replace the wages we will miss out on whilst no work is available   he says it is because he is a small business, and therefore doesnt do holiday pay, apart for from one of my colleagues who is there since 2 years..i have been there for 7 months (since july 18th). at christmas i took 3 weeks off and received 300 euros, which for me is the same amount of paid holiday as what i would earn in one week (i work 4 days/30 hours a week at 10 euros)   because of this he says he cant give me anything and the only way i can get money for those weeks is by working extra hours in april which he can then pay me in advance, which to me is missing the point completely.     there is nothing in my contract about this (or actually holiday pay in general), so any help on the legality of this would be hugely appreciated, as at the moment it leaves me in a pretty difficult situation   thanks
