  1. Hello everyone, I opened the mailbox today to find a letter from our landlord, UIS, informing us that unless we pay rent before 30/July we will be thrown out. Do they have the power to throw us out? I  was subletting my furnished room to another person while away on internship. I didnt know he, nor the other roommate werent paying. So do they have a legal basis to throw me out I have attached the letter to this post.   Address - 09599 Freiberg Androhung fristose Kündigung  Sehr geehrte Wohngeneinschaft, bei der Überprofung des Mietkontos haben wir festgestellt, dass Sie die Mietzahlung für die Monate Januar bis Juni 2021 nicht vollstandig geleistet haben.

  2. Hello,    I am going to relocate to Berlin together with my family. We don't know anybody in town and before we actually find a place we'd like to rent, we'll need to have a short-term accommodation. I suppose that the short-term rental would be for at least 1 month and if we are not successful, then possibly longer. We have 2 little children (aged 1 and 4). I found a website called wunderflats that seems to specialize in short-term lettings. Would you please be able to suggest where else can I search? We don't need anything very central and would be especially happy to explore Falkensee and the area around.
  3. Hi,   My landlord (Hausverwaltung / Property Management company) has sent me a letter asking to pay temporary reduced rent. In the calculation they have mentioned Sammelheizung (collective heating) as Yes.   I played around with the following rent calculation form:   I noticed that Sammelheizung Yes or No makes a huge difference in the rent calculation. Hence, I wanted to understand if my situation comes under Yes or No. My heating situation is as follows:   I have a separate gas meter inside my house. After moving into the apartment I applied for the gas connection and paying the monthly bill for the same. Whenever house heater or hot water is started, the meter is running. I am mentioning this because I never got a clear answer from the landlord (Hausverwaltung / Property Management company) about heating situation (Hausverwaltung is pretty clueless and unresponsive).   More information about Sammelheizung as per Google Translation of this page: Under a collective heating all types of heating are to be understood, where the heat and power from a central location from happening. A floor heating or apartment heating (gas, oil, electric heating) that heats all living spaces adequately is equivalent to collective heating.   My case seems to be individual heating and not collective heating. I wanted to confirm my understanding before I write to the property management company. Can someone provide insight on this?   Thanks.  
  4. Hi all,   I realise there are similar topics in the forum, but I haven't been able to find one that matches the details of my case so well.   In 2018, my family and I moved to Mönchengladbach and paid a €1000 deposit on a flat there. Let me at this point mention that the landlord did nothing to repair any defects with the flat (some shutters did not close, and others would get stuck once down, leaving me and my family sitting in dark, cold rooms in the winter, and hot, bright rooms in the summer; the basement was susceptible to flooding, which we were not warned about, leading to several hundred euro of damage to our property and costs of several hundred more euro to clear out the destroyed items - something the landlord said he would do for us 'als Wiedergutmachung', but never did; the shower basin was leaky, resulting in mould on the tiles and floorboards; the heating did not work for almost two weeks in December, which led to mould behind and on the back of furniture; the front door of the house, which the landlord promised to change when we moved in but never did, was not secure, which resulted in the theft of items from the basement - before the flooding...), which will hopefully explain my reluctance to accommodate his other errors, which I outline below.   In August 2019, we left Germany for Ireland, terminating the lease in accordance with the contract (giving three months' notice) and with a signed Übergabeprotokoll from the landlord's agent showing that the flat had been returned in the expected condition. Between then and the end of last year I repeatedly wrote to my former landlord, requesting that he pay the deposit back into my bank account, and each time I have received no response.   On 6th January 2020, the Nebenkostenabrechnung for 2018 arrived - 6 days too late according to § 556 BGB. As it was late, I initially ignored it, but then in early July 2020 - well within the one-year cut-off - I wrote to the landlord to tell him that I wouldn't be paying his bill as it arrived too late, citing the relevant legal paragraphs, and again requesting that he return my deposit. The landlord did not respond to this letter.   The Nebenkostenabrechnung for 2019 arrived on 5th January 2021 - once again 5 days too late, and again I wrote to the landlord to say I would not be paying it, with a further request to return the deposit. The landlord did not respond to this letter either.   As far as I am aware, the landlord now has no claim over the deposit and is legally obliged to return it in full - plus interest. Therefore, at the beginning of February 2021, I wrote him a letter (subject: Fristsetzung: Rückzahlung der Mietkaution), setting a deadline of 15th February to return the money. As the letter only arrived on 12th February, I extended this deadline to 19th February via a WhatsApp message, giving him an entire week to return the money.   Today I received a WhatsApp message from him, trying to intimidate me into paying these bills, giving the impression that the court would side with him if I were to take legal action.   If the guy had fulfilled his obligations as a landlord while we were living in the flat, I would be more than willing to forgive him a few days and pay the Nebenkostenabrechnungen. However, as life was pretty miserable for me and my family in that flat, am I not inclined to do so. However, before I do take legal action, I'd like to know if anyone here has had a similar experience.   The questions on my mind are: Have I fulfilled all my obligations regarding the Nebenkostenabrechnungen? Did I stick to all the deadlines? Does my move to another EU country count as a "special reason" to justify the landlord's being unable to get the Nebenkostenabrechnungen to me on time (he posted 2018's bill on 23rd December 2019, and 2019's bill on 27th December 2020 - of course they weren't going to arrive in time!)? Ordinarily, if the Nebenkostenabrechnung arrives late due to a delay with the German post, that's something the landlord has to grin and bear... Is there a time limit on the landlord reasserting his claim? (There's the 12-month deadline for the delivery of the Nebenkostenabrechnung, then another 12 months in which the renter can raise an objection to said Nebenkostenabrechnung. But is there a further deadline for the landlord to observe when countering the renter's objection? What is my next step - a letter with the word Mahnung in the subject line, or the Mahnverfahren itself? If I do start the Mahnverfahren, how do I calculate the interest accrued on the withheld deposit? I haven't seen a Sparbuch or anything. Is there anything else I should bear in mind?   Thank you so much to anyone who has any advice! I'm absolutely at the end of my tether with this penny-pinching man and, honestly, just want to move on with my new life now - while giving him a taste of his own medicine, of course!
