Re: Billed 260CHF to change a light bulb!

I seem to have an interesting situation with my letting agent whereby there seems to be confusion over the changing of a light bulb which has ended up with them sending us a bill for 260CHF.


I'd investigate whether you can claim this back because it's over CHF150-. But otherwise, I would make absolutely clear to the landlord that next time he needs your agreement before incurring any expense on your behalf. Sometimes just the shaming is enough for them to chip in.

Depends, really, on your relationship with your landlord.
