Re: Reminder with threat of termination / Mahnung mit Kündigungsandrohung

Hmm...sure....but it means the landlords know they can get away with ignoring emails.

This is what exactly happened. After I slept over it and realized that my permit B will expire soon and I will be applying for permit C, I decided to pay the reminder fees regardless of who I think is right. The 39 CHF is not worth the headache I could possibly have if they really terminate my apartment... Christmas coming, I'm going to be abroad etc.

Thank you all for your advice!

If OP used English they definitely can, possibly subject to what language was used before.

Re: Reminder with threat of termination / Mahnung mit Kündigungsandrohung

Regarding the OP's question about the number of reminders. No need to send out multiple reminders in particular considering that the deposit is limited to a maximum of three months rent, so a landlord needs to be able to terminate quickly if indeed there is non-payment. The notice needs to provide a 30 day deadline, after which the landlord can terminate within 30 days as of the end of a month.So purely due to the minimum deadlines required the landlord may end up with 2-3 months of the appartment continuing to be occupied.

As to the CHF 39.-- I agree its not worth the hassle. But - if its not envisaged in the lease contract - I do not see them being permitted to charge it in principle. And in the present case, since they screwed up with the direct debit I believe even if it is envisaged in the lease contract they should not be able to claim it (depending on whether the OP otherwise had their payment details).

Since the OP in any event needs to contact them to make sure that they do not mess up the direct debit again, he might want to ask them to pay it back...

while it's good to not have entries on there, it's not a total disaster. I know people who've been able to get rental contacts despite bad debts. It just tends to cost more and you can't get quite so nice places!

If the entries are in dispute, most decent agencies ignore them anyway. I know a couple who got a mortgage despite disputed entries.
If you apply for a popular apartment within a price range that most people can afford, then you will be rejected - from the outset - if you have a Betreibungsauszug that shows negative positions.

Perhaps for the apartments that are not so popular, or where it has been sitting on the market for quite a while, untaken, it may be possible to come to this negotiating position.

Hi, have to ask - is this a generally agreed principle with Indian contractors?
