Re: Billed 260CHF to change a light bulb!

The "thing" is: minor maintenance ("kleinen Unterhalt") are the duty of the tenant. For example changing filters or light bulbs. I am afraid the 50/100/150CHF limit does NOT apply for these.

When we last moved out, the lid of bathroom evac. fall off and we did not notice on moving out. They charged us 450CHF!!! for fixing it:
- 100 for the tech guy to come (+ 50 for his "travel costs") to first see what needs to be done;
- about 25CHF for the plastic lid
- again 100 for the tech guy to come (+ 50 for his "travel costs") to actually fit the plastic lid
- about 25CHF for the actual work.

I was extremely mad about it, but had nothing to do so paid up and learned my lesson: DO NOT LET THE REGIE FIX ANYTHING FOR YOU.
