Re: Renting nightmare

Now, this depends a lot on who signed the rental agreement.


Was it signed jointly or by you alone ?



You need to think past whatever 'worst case' period there is - which flat do you want ?



Sounds like you want to stay where you are, and let the other place go. Either you pay the notice period and let it go with the landlord to find someone new, or you try to find a 'nachmieter' sooner - someone to take it over.


Oh, and make sure the ex- has handed the keys back - has the landlord done the inspection ? The biggest risk is leaving it empty and having someone trash the place when you are not there...



If you don't want the old place, then you need to do the handover ASAP and have confirmed in writing the notice period and how much rent total will be due. In writing from the landlord. Was the deposit paid jointly ? Did you get household insurance ? Did you register your change of address at the Gemeinde ? Is your ex- likely to a) refuse to pay b) trash the place c) fail to return the keys d) walk out without doing the handover ?
Great advice, time for brain cells to calm down a bit.

Going to work hard on getting a replacement tenant & stay where I moved too.
