Moving into an apartment

Tenants have the right to move into housing that is clean and in good condition.

Before the new tenant moves in, the landlord and the tenant inspect the condition of the apartment and record any defects (even if they seem negligible) in an inspection report. This report serves as the basis of the exit inspection when the tenant leaves the apartment.

Please note!
If you notice a defect or any damage at a later date, you have 10 days time to report it to the landlord by registered mail.

Please note!
If you accept any fixture or fitting (carpets etc.) from the previous tenant, it is your responsibility to remove them when leaving the apartment.
