No. For example, in Washington, notice must either be given in person, or by both posting "in a conspicuous place on the premises unlawfully held" as well as "deposited in the mail, postage prepaid, by both regular mail and certified mail directed to the tenant's or tenants' last known address". As far as I know, no notice to tenant can ...

I got the following answer from DMB-Mietervereinen (translated) According to their rental agreement, a gross warm rent was agreed upon, so that the settlement of operating costs is generally excluded. However, the Heating Costs Ordinance could be applied, in particular section two, if the building in question has no more than two apartments of which the ...

What to do? @roland is right: contact the local Mieterverein. The Mietervereine are consumers' rights organizations that give legal advise on rental matters to renters. This is usually the cheapest option to get a lawyer who is specialized at rental law. The Mieterverein, btw., may find that the final accounting is wrong - the rules are rather complex (they ...

The old terms apply ... ... until the landlord gives notice and ends the lease - then the tenant has to get out. This is not inconsistent with the requirement to “execute all revised rental agreements upon request” - unless and until new terms have been agreed, there are no “revised rental agreements”, once there are, the tenant can be requested to (and must)...

Rental contracts with more than one tenant are usually written in a way that the tenants are "Gesamtschuldner" (joint debtors). That means the landlord can request any contractual obligations from any one of the tenants at their discretion. So if one contract partner is deceased, then the landlord can demand that the remaining tenant fulfills any ...

In Germany, the assets and liabilities of the deceased (including, I think, contractual rights and obligations) pass immediately to the heirs - there is no probate or deceased estate as there is in common law jurisdictions. In your circumstances, the rights and obligations of B pass immediately to C. Therefore, A & C are required to do whatever it is ...

Who pays rent? It entirely depends on the terms of the lease the co-tenants jointly signed. It is impossible to address your question with specificity or certainty unless we know the terms of the lease. For instance, if the lease mentions that co-tenants are jointly and severally liable, then the landlord is entitled to recover from any co-tenant any and ...
