  1. Hi, I was wondering if one was to rent out a completely furnished place, if it'd make sense to specify in the contract a part of rent being actually to cover the fact that the flat is fully equipped, and if so, how one should do that specifically. I've only always used ready made standard contracts by Avery that seem to do the job fine. But I can't seem to see that option on those and I'm not sure if it's even contemplated by German law.  Any hints?  Thanks!  
  2. Landlord renovating attic during lockdown

    Hi All, Strange question here for any legal minded types as I am uncertain of my rights as a tenant and haven't found a resource in German to answer them.. My landlord (Bavaria) has hired builders to turn the attic in our building into apartments. There will be scaffold erected on both sides of the building and the windows and balconies will be covered until September. We have received no formal notice of this process and only found out about it on the grapevine last week. We are two floors under the attic and the lock-down has already been sometimes hard going since the kitas are closed and we're at home with a toddler and a baby but the idea of not having the balcony makes me slightly uncomfortable... I'm waiting for some of the German neighbours to kick up a stink but would just like to have a bit more background info in the meantime. To be honest I'm a bit surprised by the timing here - it strikes me as a bit of a self-centered move given current circumstances. We've been here five years and I've never had any cause for complaint before. Is this allowed with the current lock-down rules - I assume it is or they wouldn't do it? Also, as this is not essential renovations or anything and is building that will only benefit the landlord, is there any legal wiggle room for asking him to postpone this? Are all tenants in the building entitled to a minimum legal notice for non essential building? Should there even be compensation of some sort offered? I really appreciate anyone taking the time to read this or offer any direction Thank you H.D
  3. UK rental income on German tax returns

    Hi all, I'm new to the forum and have a question about my tax returns.   I am employed in Germany and pay taxes here. Last year I started receiving rental income from my UK flat. I have declared this income in the UK and do not need to pay tax on it as it falls under the tax threshold.   My question is - when I declare this to the Finanzamt, what will happen? I read that the UK has a double taxation agreement with Germany and I cannot be taxed twice on the UK income, but will the Finanzamt add the UK income to my German income and tax me on the total amount?   I live in Germany for more than 180 days in the year, but still have a registered address in the UK.   I plan to become a German citizen this year (and keep my UK passport). Would that put me in a different tax position? Any help is greatly appreciated. xxxx
