Re: interest rate reduction = possible rent reduction [Referenzzinssatz]

As a private landlord i'd fire that agency which hands down such uncalled for reductions first thing upon learning about it! I'm not running an f'ing charity. The tenant has to ask.

Re: interest rate reduction = possible rent reduction [Referenzzinssatz]

It's legal to wait until the tenant asks. Not waiting is incompetence.

It'll take a while until we see any increases. Refernzzinssatz has still a long way to go down to catch up with market rates

Depends on the interest rate now compared to that used in your contract.

Re: interest rate reduction = possible rent reduction [Referenzzinssatz]

I think it also depends on other indexes like landesindex der konsumentenpreise or kostenstand etc. But most likely outcome will be on renter's favor if contract was not signed very long back.

Whatever the saving, why not getting it? I would become member of the mieterverband and ask their help.

2.91% per each 0.25% drop in reference rate, but landlord can offset a part of it by inflation charges

Re: interest rate reduction = possible rent reduction [Referenzzinssatz]

"The reduction won't be huge, but if you want to do this, there is a template letter for you to fill in the blanks (name, address, dates) to send to your landlord/agency here."

The page does not exist...
"Seite nicht gefunden
Die von Ihnen aufgerufene Seite kann nicht gefunden werden."

Has anyone a Template (Muster) ?

Thank you

Re: interest rate reduction = possible rent reduction [Referenzzinssatz]

Hi

Our landlord raised our rent a couple of months ago, because they put in new windows. Would the Mietzinsreduktion be applicable in our case?

Thanks for your help.

Unless the new windows are better than the old ones when they were new, they had no right to do that and you probably should have contested the raise. Repairs and replacing stuff that just gets old without adding value to the building is on the landlord

Re: interest rate reduction = possible rent reduction [Referenzzinssatz]

I think they reasoned it, that it was an increase of value of the flat. They replaced the windows right before we moved in and had mentioned at that point that the rent would go up.

Will definitely give the "Mietzinsreduktion" a try!

Re: interest rate reduction = possible rent reduction [Referenzzinssatz]

Comparis.ch has a template, which I have
used even on the previous occasion when a reduction was available.
