Tenancy law/ WEG law
We represent your interests as a tenant or lessor of residential and commercial property against the other contracting party. We evaluate and pursue your claims in and out of court.
The focus of our services are disputes about terminations, rent increases, minor repairs, utility costs and security deposits.
The term „WEG“ is derived from the Wohnungseigentumsgesetz (Act on the ownership of apartments and the permanent residential right), in short WEG. The term is used synonymously for matters about apartment properties. In this context, we offer our services to prospective buyers, who intend to purchase an apartment from a developer or private vendor.
We also advise apartment owners on all questions regarding their property. The WEG law allows for a building to be split into units and to assign these units individually to their respective owners as separately owned property. The parts of the building that are not separately owned, like load bearing walls, the external facade, the stairwell, or the basement are co-owned by the community of separate owners.
This community with other unit proprietors leads to legal questions and problems of the apartment owner, on a regular basis. We offer consultation on all questions with regards to the legality of splitting ownership, the decision-making of the community, the allocation of expenses and operating costs as well as the management by an administrator.
Administrators of housing units are also our clients. We help avoiding management mistakes, especially during the meeting of the owners.
