Finally a little bit of tranquility, in this Berlin with huge hardship to those looking to move there.
For months there was talk of giving a brake to increases in rents in Berlin, and finally a new law: in force since 1 June 2015, new rules for renting.
Home owners will be required to show the previous contracts to new tenants, because of “clarity on the increases”, which must remain below the threshold of 10%.
The increases will not exceed 10%, and in any case it will refer the new tables; these tables will be available from May 18, 2015.
The new legislation also prevents the increase occurs as an auction, at the expiration of the contract if the owner intends to sell the apartment to a new tenant that offers to pay more, it will be possible to resort to court to get justice!
