Re: Rent increase reservation on new contracts

This seems quite strange, because reference rate and inflation has been going down past decade or so, all the adjustments were largely in renters' favor
You mean they have set a clause in favour of me?

Re: Berechnungsgrundlagen and Vorbehalte

Interest rates are already negative, really can't see them going any lower so you are already at the base level.
Those are not the interest rates that count and nobody will lend you money at a negative rate. What counts for rental disputes is the average of all outstanding mortgages in the coutnry -

Of course not, it's only benefiting them - they'll deny your future requests to rent reduction pointing to this exact clause

What they are claiming is that based on standard reference rate and inflation adjustments alone the rent should have been 10% higher, but for some unspecified reason they're doing you a "favor" by letting you stay for 10% lower. It'll likely just a trick to deny your future asks for 3% reduction when reference rate drops. Question it or strike out or you'll lose out on money when reference rate inevitably drops in near future, you don't have to put up with their shit.

Thanks. I will try. Anyways, if interest rate drops that low, I will buy my own house

And many thanks for your help. I'm a member of ASLOCA, but don't think they can help with a contract that is in German.
