Re: Maintenance responsibilities

Hope it helps - but perhaps a timely reminder that anyone who rents in Switzerland should join Asloca or Mietverband right from the start.
Your absolutely correct. And I really should have thought about this as I had a recent work issue and joined a trade union who were tremoundously supportive.

In my defense I have had until now a good relationship with the owner. With hindsight they have spent zero maintenance on the property in nearly 8 years -I have even fixed many minor issues myself. They have now realized they have a backlog of issues and want me to rectify them. I was being pretty reasonable with their requests as I have time and the weather is good but the list just kept creeping.

I believe I am in a relatively good position having been a tenant for more than 5 years.
