Re: Protocol to discuss with landlord broken item

Hello,
A while ago I posted about weather related damage to my flat. I just got around to calling someone in for an estimate. I don't speak much German and the rental company doesn't speak English, but we will manage. Can someone tell me the protocol for the repair? Do we determine the age of the item (outside shad) and then split the repair? Thanks for advice.
What's an outside shad? Seems some kind of fish?

If you have to pay the present value (Zeitwert) of something, let your liability insurance sort it out with your landlord. They know what they're doing!

It's the past tense of shed, a damaged shed is no longer a shed, it is an ex-shed, a shad.

I actually have no idea.

EDIT - Past posts show it was a shade.

Re: Protocol to discuss with landlord broken item

I assume by shade the OP means something like a balcony awning. I was led to believe by my husband's colleagues if that gets damaged then you are expected to pay for it yourself. We don't have that problem as our apartment has no balcony and our last place had the closed in winter room type.

Re: Protocol to discuss with landlord broken item

You should not be calling anyone - your agency needs to mandate the work. If you call expect to be considered liable for repair costs.

Merged threads, hopefully that helps clarify for anyone who reads the last page or so.
