Re: The ultimate Swiss neighbor

If you get someone to check the door, yourself, at your own bidding, then you are liable to pay that bill yourself. You cannot, in general, assume that the landlord will pick up the tab. Moreover, you may well upset your landlord (and it seems you're getting on quite well with him, now) if you just send him a bill, especially since he offered to fix the door.

As this is a very, very common bone of contention amongst tenants and landlords in Switzerland, I'd urge you to first ask him if he is going to look at the door himself, or if he would prefer you to get someone in on your time (and his expense).


And would you please post a link, here, to that industrial sound insulation you have? I'm sure many here could be glad of such an effective barrier! Thanks.
