Thanks for the constructive post chimp. It’s 3 a.m. here in Berlin while I write this post. I guess it’s hard to sleep with so much on my mind.
Still…I would much rather replay to your post then lie in bed staring at the ceiling.
- Is the property in comparable decorative condition with when you intially leased it.
Well…my ex-girlfriends dad kind of knocked a whole in the kitchen wall while attempting to fit a nail for my cork-pin board. Still not sure how extensive the damage is. The whle looks rather deep
…another thing, the people that live above me neglected the condition of their radiator. Over the perioud of about 24 hours, water came dripping from the ceiling. Gravity took it’s toll and a part of the ceiling collapsed.
I know I should have got it repaired ages ago but I never get around to DIY these days.
I guess there’s no need to start on the 2nd question so I’ll move on %|
- Is your rent currently paid in full and up to date.
Yes. I have already paid the rent for this month and I have never been late on payment before. I have no debts with Howoge or any other firm for that matter.
- Would the deposit cover the rent for the period of notice required if you were unable to fulfill the lease.
From what I’ve read & understood on the contract, the lease period is for 2 months, but the deposit contains 3 months of cold rent. Apparently though, the deposit has nothing to do with the rent. It’s just that the housing firms aren’t allowed to demand a deposit worth more than three times cold rent for that particular apartment.
Apparently in Germany, the deposit is only to ensure that the apartment is left in the same condition that it was previously in. It has nothing to do with the lease period, atleast that’s what they told me today.
Another thing that I noticed that bothered me is that in order to quite the apartment, I have to write down a forwarding address. All I get is spam in my post box and news papers that I can’t read. Besides this, I don’t really want this firm to know where I’ll be staying in the UK.
Do I have the right to with hold my home address?
Thanks again for the helping me out at these difficult times
