Photograph every room and everything before leaving and returning keys; just in case there are disputes/false claims later.
That's a great idea. That's what I learned to do; photograph before and after tenancy with a date on the photos. I should really get signatures to verify the photos. I also photograph valuables in case of theft.

- I will email her that I had to leave on urgent business and request full details of how to return what's left of my deposit and requesting a breakdown of what she is keeping.
"Urgent business" involving you, your partner and the 4-year-old?
Yeah, I'm sure they will believe that.

I see you've read some of my other posts. Partner and 4 year old are in Canada at the moment for what it's worth.

Re: Problems with Landlady over Apartment Cleanliness

Quick update.

I'm out of there

She sent me a bill last week for the additional cleaning which I refused to pay. I said I'd spoken to the Mietverband and they told me not to pay it (stretching the truth a little bit).

We did the "Uebergabe" thie morning and she found quite a lot of petty things wrong, but nothing completely insane. I expect to get some of my Mietkaution back.

Now I'm homeless ...

Re: Problems with Landlady over Apartment Cleanliness

Another update :

She has now, today, apparently uncovered damage that I "hid from her", has been calling my workplace and threatening that if I don't contact her urgently she will send me a bill for all this additional stuff to my new address (which she doesn't have).

My tactic will be to ignore her.

Re: Problems with Landlady over Apartment Cleanliness

Now you have left this mad woman, would you please give us her name and address, or at least the address where you stayed, just so we know to warn people...

Did you get your money back? Maybe a Betreibung is in order?

Just an update. I spoke too soon.

I realised in the middle of the night she had changed my bed sheet
For me this was one of the funniest posts on EF.

Not going to do that yet. But she has decided that I have damaged her floor (not seen during the Uebergabe), by "not turning the heating off properly", hence it leaked!

She's going to chase me all over the world to get more money out of me.

Re: Problems with Landlady over Apartment Cleanliness

I think this is a bit of a thing. A friend of the SO is living in an apartment that is let out by her mother. She has the same thing, her mum will go into the flat, inspect everything and tell her that its not clean enough.

I guess she won't do that if the daughter moves out, but now I'm not so sure!
