There's quite a bit of helpful information on the subject on this section of the Homegate Site

If you can cope with the German, this Mieterverband page gives the 'life expectancy' of equipment.

Another German page from the Beobachter on the same theme.

Hello! Since I cannot find any suitable translation, could someone help me with the following issue? I am moving out of my current flat and I don't know whether I should clean the shutters which are in very very bad shape since the day I moved in. I have informed the landlord about it, but he seems to be ignoring my texts (possibly on purpose). The shutters can be found in the pictures below:

Just 1-2 days after I moved in I had informed the landlord about the problematic shutters, but again he ignored my text (even though on other issues - which he was interested in mainly - he has been responsive).

Re: Normal wear and tear in apartment

The whole thing, one "wing" that can be folded in or out, is called "der Fensterladen" (plural die Fensterläden). Typically there's one each on the left and the right, as appears to be in your case. The horizontal boards are called "Lamellen" (singular die Lamelle).

No idea what the vertical bar is called, I guess "vertikaler Balken" should do.

Send your pictures to the landlord.

Re: Normal wear and tear in apartment

How does this work in Swiss Romande? What are the rules for wear and tear here?

Belgianmum, there is website referenced here that seems to reference all the german cantons, but not GE/VD/VS. That was my question.

ASLOCA is the equivalent in Swiss Romande but the criteria is the same. Looking back at the thread I see I gave that information already in post #30.

Here is the document detailing wear and tear etc for Romandie
