Re: Extra fees on rental apartment

Many landlords do a low estimate to make the rent seem cheaper and then charge the real amount later, as it most likely happened to you. I once got a bill of 870.- for additional costs for only 9 month. I went to Mieterverband (Asloca) and they advised me to contest it because I had paid all additional costs already and my landlord owed me 100.-!

Landlord tried to bully me on the phone but I calmly told him we could also see each other at the justice of peace's office - as I had been advised at the Mieterverband. After that, he backed off. I asked other tenants - he did this as a routine and and nobody had ever contested it...

Just because the régie tells you all is well: Sometimes it isn't.
