Who says house owners are always unfair?

We moved into a new building beginning of the year, the other apartments remained empty for a long time (rents were high and demand low). The rent was later reduced, and slowly the apartments also got filled. We did not like the situation that we were still paying higher rents than our neighbours for the same apartment. A couple of emails to the adminstration company did not get the desired result. A consultation with MV (renters association) showed that since we had signed the contract, there was no legal basis to ask for a rent reduction.
Finally, I emailed the owner (in this case like in many, a pension fund), and they have nicely agreed to make the necessary adjustment.

Just saying.
