  1. Hello!   I was just informed that my landlord wants to sell the apartment I'm currently renting.   In my contact we have waived the right of termination for a period of two years: Es handelt sich um einen allgemeinen Mietvertrag von unbestimmter Dauer mit Ausschluss des Kündigungsrechts. Die Parteien verzichten wechselseitig auf die Dauer von 2 Jahren ab Vertragsschluss auf ihr Recht zur ordentlichen Kündigung dieses Mietvertrags. Eine Kündigung ist erstmals zum Ablauf des Zeitraums von 2 Jahren mit der gesetzlichen Frist zulässig.Von dem Verzicht bleibt das Recht zur fristlosen Kündigung und zur außerordentlichen Kündigung mit gesetzlicher Frist unberührt.   My question is whether the potential buyer can bypass this waiver with some legal backdoor, or will I be able to stay at least until the end of those 2 years?   Thank you!
  2. I've been renting an apartment for two years with no problems, friendly landlords, came every six months to renew the contact, had no complaints about the apartment etc, everything okay.   I told them that I was looking to move in with my other half and they agreed to extend the contract, but had no problem if I would terminate it early, as long as they had three or four weeks notice.    I was then back home due to unfortunate family circumstances, and my other half called to say that we had got the new apartment, I called my landlords and told them that I would be moving out at the end of the month.  They were fine with it, and asked when I would be back so they could arrange viewings.  I told them that I'd be back in a week.  Then two days before I was due to come home they texted to ask if they could show my apartment.  I said no, as I had left in a rush, it was a chaotic day and I wasnt sure how the apartment was.  They said it didnt matter, but it was important that they got entry.  I said again no, as I wasnt sure if I had my personal things left around and obviously I dont want strangers going into the apartment when my stuffs lying about.    We agreed a time to visit a few days after I was back, I had flown back one day and was straight into work the next, and due to the long shifts, I only had a few hours in the evening to sort things.  I then got a message a day before the viewing saying that the potential tenant was in town today and could they go into my apartment.  I said okay, because I thought I was being nice and doing them a favour, letting them show it, but told them it wasnt perfect as I wasnt expecting them until tomorrow and I was already in work.  About an hour after the visit they sent me a shitty text message to say that they werent happy that the apartment was chaotic and they hope that it wont be like that for the termin the day after!   First off, I had told them that it wasnt perfect as I wasnt expecting them to visit until the day after, and I cant just walk out of work at the drop of a hat.  But also. if they think four boxes of my stuff to the side is chaotic, I dont know how they are going to take it when all my stuff is packed up.  Its only a one room apartment so its not like I have anywhere I can hide stuff.  Is it not obvious to potential tenants that the person living there is in the middle of moving, its obviously not going to look like that when they move in? Am I able to suggest that they wait until I am moved out before showing anyone else around if they want to show it as it will be without my stuff? I dont want to leave with bad blood, but I find it a bit unreasonable that they expect me to have all of my stuff out of there.  I only have one day off work until the day I have to be out, so its gonna have to be done over time.
  3. I have just started apartment searching in Leipzig.  I have a limited budget, so have been looking for lower rents.  I have seen a number of apartments listed in Grünau, that sound very cheap, rent wise.  I however have came across this statement "Es sind Genossenschaftsanteile gemäß Satzung zu zeichnen. Der angegebene Mietpreis kann auf Grund individueller Ausstattungswünsche variieren. "  This makes me wonder.  Does this mean I have to purchase a share in the cooperative?  Are these apartments owned by an individual owner, or by the cooperative?  I'm finding apartment hunting, isn't all that easy.   Before you say anything about Grünau, I have seen the area.  I do not find it unsuitable. Compared to some other areas, I think it is quite suitable for me.  I am not afraid to live in a Plattenbau, and there is plenty of green space around.  I am a senior, so am not looking to be near clubs and the like.   I'm looking for a comfortable place for me and my dog. Convenient to transportation, and shopping.       Thanks!
