Re: Right to refuse "break-in"

The more I read the OP’s posts the less I understand them.

I haven’t got a clue what she’s rambling on about half the time.

It’s a bit sad if Google Translate beats the legal insurance.
So, you have problem understanding English????

A bit more than one month rent. I forwarded it to a lawyer.

Anyway, I’ll have to find a new tenant. That will cost me more. C'est la vie.
If you're moving out, I might be able to take the place depending on the timescale. I'm looking for a new spot for spring.
I will however need to be let in the door to take a look.

This would be great. I’ll contact you.

When I’m home you are welcome. Until that: it’s one of the most silent places in Zürich, yet Bellevue is 15 minutes from the door. (If you don’t have a starship. With a starship, it takes only 0.000563 nanoseconds.)

The lake is ten minutes walk, and you can swim right there next to a park. By the way, you can see a little bit of the lake from the garden.

The old-timer Swiss neighbors are super-friendly and helpful here. I don’t know the new and non-Swiss neighbors except for I greet them. They look cool. I think they are two young Russian couples.

You can do the laundry any day if it’s not booked.

I’ll leave this flat only because I outgrew it. It’s one room and a big kitchen, 35sqm. But the silence and the garden makes it difficult to find a proper replacement.

I visited a megaschön flat in Küsnacht, I loved it, but I wouldn’t move there from here even for the same price. And you can guess it’s not the same price. There is a bus station front of it (the Küsnacht one).

You should know the gardening work has become annoying in the last year due to the noise. It happens several times a week. It’s at 11 am or something like that when people like me try to start sleeping. If you are a normal person, you’ll never hear it. There is no other problem I’m aware of.

I don’t know when I move out but I’m looking already for the options.

So you work at night and sleep during the day and don't want anyone to come unannounced into your flat.

What was it you said you did for a living again?

You guys are funny.

I do not think that "routine" maintenance work would allow a break in. It is not an emergency situation.

But I am for sure if OP still refuses and no other amicable deal can be found it will lead to an interesting court case about damages, compensation and the extend of Art. 257h https://www.admin.ch/opc/en/classifi...dex.html#a257h as well as Art. 98 and 99 Code of Obligations https://www.admin.ch/opc/en/classifi...index.html#a98 and additionally in case of a break in Art. 701 Civil Code
https://www.admin.ch/opc/en/classifi...ndex.html#a701, and Art. 16 - 18 Criminal Code https://www.admin.ch/opc/en/classifi...index.html#a16 vs. Art. 186 Criminal Code https://www.admin.ch/opc/en/classifi...ndex.html#a186

If it comes to a court case, please inform us about date an location. This one might be really interesting one.

But on the other hand if you are so seriously concerned what could happen in case someone enters your flat during your absence you have a much bigger problem at hand than this routine maintenance work. Why? Because there could really be an emergency problem which can only be fixed by entering your apartment which would be perfectly legal or they may be simply a common burglary and your stuff gone and ransacked.

I’m not much surprised. One doesn’t have to be a lawyer to read the laws. They consist of sentences. Sentences contain words. I didn’t even have to understand German to read one thanks to Google Translate.

The law they tried to use to treat me was not a basis for a fine. I guess they didn’t expect I would read it. Considering the reactions here, bluffing is a safe bet for them most of the time.

In my experiences, choosing the path of the least resistance leads to places where I don’t want to be.

.
OK, so nothing happened so far even though you didn't allow your landlord to do whatever they had to do. OP, as you come across as a pretty intense person, I'm getting the feeling that they really didn't want to fight with you....

Hope you'll be fine.

Not bad. She looks a bit stressed but the shoulders of the man are great.

BDSM might be the only kink I don’t have. I prefer balance and equality. I would start laughing in both roles. BDSM is for people who can’t or don’t want to go to a therapy.

I prefer Wolford or similar styles. (Except for most of their bras are small cups). Simplicity is classy when it’s done right.

You are not far from the truth. My work is about making lonely people happier and less lonely. Both physically and mentally.

In other words, I make the world a better place each day.

When I started reading your post I thought you would write I’m such an intense person they rather don’t want to meet me or come in.

Someone told me most people hate their jobs. They want only to survive and get their salaries at the end of the month.

This is a possible explanation. The "landlord" (an employee of a big company) tried to treat me with a law, so they could tell they did their best. And their method works most of the time.

The point is: there is no responsibility on them anymore, as they tried to convince me as much as possible. They can go home in the evening and come to work tomorrow whatever happens in my flat.

Otherwise, they don’t care at all. I’m not sure for how long will they remember this.

Anyway, if Pinocchio was a real-estate agent in Switzerland, his nose would reach the Moon. For example, you’re searching for an apartment in Küsnacht. The site says it’s in Küsnacht. Then it turns out it’s in Forch.
Pinokkio would tell you that part of Forch is in the municipality of Küsnacht, and he would tell you that this is one of many statements you made in this topic which gives him the idea that you either have no clue about the English language, or are lacking common sense (or both)

I seriously think that you above all are not in the position to tell others they need therapy.
