I am moving into a new home where landlord is living close by. I paid the rent and when I was about to move in, I came to get the key and the landlord told me that I cannot get it because I did not bring the luggage with me.
The landlord told me that he cannot give me the key because he has to see my luggage. first. To me that sounded like a very weird request, but I had no choice but to except it. I would not get the keys otherwise. I do not want to move in the exact day when the rent starts, but a bit later though.
What should I do in this case? This sounds very weird to me. I do want to have good relations with my landlord, but when I saw this I can't help but get suspicious that I will always have troubles with this landlord. Also is it even legal that my landlord is withholding the keys from me?
All this is happening in Germany, so German laws apply here.
