Landlord being a little unprofessional

5 posts in this topic

Hi all,

 

Situation

 

First of all I rented this room for a shared flat to this real estate company.

After some of the flat mates breaking some of the rules of the contract I tried to contact him to look for a solution, reporting my intention to leave the flat finally:

  • Wrote to the agent by email who I signed the contract with.
  • Phoned the same agent.
  • Phoned the number in the company website.

 

All of my attempts to contact were ignored (for months), at the end I had to find by other means someone working in that company to contact the CEO.

 

I will be leaving Germany for some months, and I don't plan to go back to that flat, obviously.

 

I set an appointment with the CEO before I left to give the keys, but he cited me and he didn't show up. After 30 minutes I left.

 

My issue

I will have a third person to meet him and deliver the keys, before my contract runs out, but as I won't be there when my contract ends I want to give the keys already (and also he didn't received me when he called me).

I would like to have a docuemnt that states that a third person will give the keys for that flat the date the keys are delivered, can I do that?

It's possible?
Do I have any law that protects me?

What if he refuses, how can I prove that I (in this case a third) delivered the keys?

 

Thanks and let me know if any further information is needed!

You can send him the keys via registered mail.  That would be your proof that he got them.  Another method would be to get two people to give him the keys or to drop them in his mailbox.  Then the two people can both witness that the keys were handed over.

Thank you very much for the answer @LeonG !

 

He's giving me more crap now and wants me to deliver a new resignation letter with the date changed...

 

I thought about the first method you mention, registred mail, but he could say that the letter was empty... I can't find a method that guarantees the content of the packet...

 

Really getting out of ideas and this entire thing is starting to stress me out.

 

Thanks!

You can have a witness see the keys going into the envelope and go with you to the post office to mail it.  You make up a statement saying "We can verify that this registered letter sent on date X (tracking number) contained the keys to the apartment/room."  Date it and both of you sign it.
