Apartment handover: new damage not in the protocol
 
Hi everyone!

I've got quite a simple and, I guess, typical question. Googling did not help.
I received a final calculation, 4 month after the day of handover. There some items not mentioned in the handover protocol. The question is: do I still have to pay whatever they want to bill me for?

I have a guess where the new items come from. There was a damage caused by the building renovation works, and it had to be fixed by the agency after the handover. I guess the new damage caused by fixing that old damage. And now they want me to pay for it.

A new tenant have some time, usually 2 weeks, to report any damage he finds later, after the handover. Who pays for that damage?

Short answer, no. If it's not listed on your final inspection it's not your responsibility. Any damage incurred after that is down to the landlord/agency to pay for.
