Landlord obligations

3 posts in this topic

I recently let my apartment in Berlin and I am wondering if there is a requirement to carry out electrical and gas safety checks ? Also, is any kind of insurance worth taking out?

My understanding based on being a tenant in Munich rather than a landlord in Berlin is that gas appliances must checked once a year and smoke alarms must be installed at the entrance hall and in each bedroom and they must also be checked and batteries replaced as necessary each year. I have never had the electrics checked but requirements may vary from place to place.

Building insurance, legal insurance, 3rd party liability
