Re: Experience with the Schlichtungsbehörde as a landlord?

As most always you want to check your contract. IIRC if the mediation suggests an extension, the former owner is liable unless such was explicitly excluded. If it doesn't, you probably want a lawyer right away to avoid becoming liable for their loss, e.g. because you didn't inform them day before yesterday so they can protect themselves.

If such a liability is excluded in your contract:
Remember to mention the unusually long cancel term. Your need to move in because you've already given notice may be a factor in your favor.

Perhaps also mention that your open to suggestions and willing to help, for instance by accepting their moving out during the notice period. Unfortunately instead of seeking an amicable/better solution with you directly they went to the arbitration court immediately.
