Re: Plumbing, whose responsibility?

The landlord is resonsible if the total cost of the repair comes to more than Fr 200,--

You should join a Tenants' Protection Society, search here for "Mieterschutz" and after talking to them, get back to the agent and ask them to pay up!

However, you have employed the plumber, so in the first instance you should pay the bill, and get the money from the agency / owner. Next time get the agency to call a plumber: maybe the caretaker could have repaired it cheaper.
He didn't actually say that he employed the plumber. He said he called the letting agency and 2 days later a plumber came over to fix it. Does that make a difference to whether he has to pay up front or not?
