Although I can't know for sure, I'd think that the landlord is unlikely to break in to your flat. They have informed you when you must be there. You have said you cannot, and suggested 10 other times when you could be there.

I lived in a building in which water and heating systems had to be worked on on the same day. All the tenants received the info well in advance, as you have. We were warned that anyone who was not there (or had not deposited a key with the caretaker or a neighbour) would be liable to bear the expenses that the plumber and heating technicians might incur by having to come back on another day.

On the day, 8 tenants were there or had left a key, and 1 not. The workers then did as much as they could without access to that flat, and they had to return to do the rest of the work on another day.

All the tenants received a second date, and the letter explained that the reason was that one tenant had not given the workers access to his/her flat, so the workers needed to visit again to finish the work. Everyone had to be there again for that second day, or once again leave the key with the caretaker. As you can imagine, those other 8 tenants were not so happy that the omission of the 1 tenant had caused them to have to organise things all over again.

The bill for that second day was charged, in full, to the one tenant who had blocked things the first day. That tenant was also sent a bill for one-ninth of the full costs of the first day. No other tenants were billed anything.
Is this rule legal? It sounds like build the border wall and let mexico pay.

Why are you resurrecting this thread - is there a current issue with your rental in Switzerland?

Lots of previous EFers squeezing through the old floor-boards lately (myself included).

I just had an accident and found this thread. Since later on I find out that this thread is full of off-topic discussions I think it's better I don't reply here any more.

Regarding "refresh"ing, I love your joke, Kgnavl
