Some landlords come up with threats if you stand up for your rental rights. Such landlords sometimes say that they are going to terminate your lease.
If you have a contract for an indefinite period, the landlord cannot actually evict you. This is only possible if you have failed to pay the rent several times or are a frequent nuisance. If you have a contract for a definite period, the landlord must respect the legal notice period.
It may happen that a landlord cuts off facilities such as gas, water, electricity, internet or television. In that case, always make a written report to the landlord about the problems. If the facilities are part of your lease, the landlord is obligated to fix the problems.
If harassment and threats become protracted, it is wise to keep a log of the incidents. If possible, you can also make video recordings or audio recordings. Once sufficient evidence has been gathered, it is possible to start proceedings against the landlord.
Tenants can always report the matter to the police, and students can also go to the Rent Harassment Helpdesk. An intimidating or discriminating landlord can, in extreme cases, lose his or her license.
