lifespan of household items: national or cantonal?
 
Are the life-times listed in
https://www.mieterverband.ch/mv/miet...ertabelle.html
for household items a canton thing or it applies at the national level?

I have never heard of this kind of computation of "remaining value" for an old wall or parquet in Geneva. So, in practice, should I expect to be asked for fraction of the cost of repainting my wall if that was painted more than 5 years ago ?

Depending on the life time (10 years for painting??) you only pay a percentage.

Itīs quite common

Thanks for your reply.

When you say "quite common", can you say in what context you say so? For instance what canton?

I have never heard that in Vaud nor Geneva so far. My inspection in Lausanne was with zero damages, so I do not have first hand experience, but again, never heard anyone saying "I paid only half of the job because the paint-job was old" or "I paid nothing because the wallpaper was X years old".

In fact I was asking what is the legal basis for such "depreciation" and if that is national or cantonal.

If you want to answer the guy, then answer the guy, otherwise stop wasting everybody's time with this kind of shit answer.

You can find the expected lifespan of common items from ASLOCA website, just search for Tableau des amortissements. Note that the document is said to be "indicative".

My question was about tables being cantonal or national. So I think it helps to see a german and a french one. For what I can see they are the same, but the german may be greek and I would not notice for long time!

In French, and AFAIK, it also valid in Geneva.
