  3. Hi everyone We are renting an apartment in Stuttgart and in our contract it is stated that we have basement starage. The room is however full of the owner's property and we have no space. We have asked them multiple times to clear the basement, but the requests have been ignored. Due to this and other issues with the property we have decided to move out. In the same fashion as ignoring our requests, the owners are being quite difficult with the moving out arrangements. Do we have any legal grounds to claim the cost of the basement storage over the time that we have lived there back from them, even just as a "bargaining tool"?   Any advice would be appreciated, Thanks!
  4. We are looking for an apartment to rent in Bochum, so I contacted a rental company to see some of their apartments. But, the person on the told me to obtain "wohnbescheinigung" otherwise they would show us no apartment!    I googled the term, and I think it is a type of certificate showing you are a low-income person residing in Germany (or something like that). However, at the moment I'm a doctoral student having stipend and also wissenschaftlicher contract, and later on, I will be employed as a wissenschaftlicher mitarbeiter. Also, currently I have a study residence permit (if it is important).   So, do I need this certificate? because a few years ago when I checked the conditions regarding any social benefit or the Kita costs I didn't belong to the low-come category!    
  5. Most often the contract demands to paint on move out, because the apartment was "just painted" before the current tenant. Does the landlord have to provide a proof of such claim? The renovation could have taken place much longer ago and just held up well. If tenant stays in the place for more than three years and there are no visible signs of wear and tear does he still have to renovate? What happens if the flat wasn't freshly renovated to begin with and didn't look like it was, but the contract claims renovating when moving out?
  6. We are about to move to another city due to my job change. Let's say that my current contract ends by July 31 and the new job starts from August 1. However, I may obtain my new contract near the end of July.   My problem is that if I want to sign a rental agreement in June (or even May), I do not have my next job contract yet to show to the landlord. Also, my current employment contract clearly states its termination by the end of July. So, I'm somehow clueless about how to handle this!   In fact, I've had this job for the past five years and also have been living in my current apartment for the same period, and I want to convince the landlord to at least sign a draft version of the contract (like a reservation) until I present him my new employment contract   in July (before the move-in).
