Re: Scammed by the Hauptmieter

The lawyer advised that I can ask for the form that was mentioned earlier in the thread and go to the Schlichtungsbehoerde, but that can only achieve a reduction of the rent. And of course I could talk to the landlord.

I talked to the main tenant about it, and after some discussions and threats, he agreed to terminate my contract at the end of the month, buy back the furniture and pay me back about 60% of the excessive part of the rent. He really doesn't want me to talk to the landlord.

He wants us to sign a contract that says these things, and then to transfer the money at the end of the month when I leave, according to him it's a guarantee that I don't trash the apartment, but I'm worried that he is trying some other fishy thing.

I'll go over it with a lawyer, but please let me know if you notice anything fishy:
If you can, please talk to the landlord so that this does not happen to the next unfortunate person.
