Régie wants to do two weeks of work on the flat, no shower or toilet

Hi guys,

So the régie has been pestering us to have some work done in the flat. He's estimated the work to be around two weeks worth, where the shower and toilet won't be accessible. Do we have any right to say no to this? I find this unacceptable as what exactly are we supposed to do during that period?

Thanks,

Oukka

Did you ask him upfront what alternatives eg other accommodation they can provide in this period?

Are you meant to crap in the sink too? Don't let them do anything until an alternative solution has been provided; they can't access your appartment without your permission anyway.

PS: He has to lower the rent for the month were you can not use the facilities. 25% or more can be possible. Check with ASLOCA.
