When you rent a room, studio or apartment, it obviously needs to be in good condition. Some landlords check the technical condition with you and fill in a delivery form before you move in. Any damage must be repaired. Talk to your landlord about the repairs and what the landlord is going to do about it. What if they don’t follow through? Then record the state in writing (possibly with photos) before you have completely moved in and give this to your landlord. What if you discover damage? Please report this to your landlord as soon as possible and have this recorded in writing. This ensures that you do not pay for damage that was not caused by you. Then make agreements about who will repair it and how much time it will take. Of course, you do not have to contribute to the repair, because the damage was not caused by you in your rental period.
