You fill out the rent control calculator free of charge & without obligation and find out directly how high your savings potential is. Afterwards, you can decide whether you want to commission wenigermiete.de with the enforcement of the rent control.

If your landlord is not willing to negotiate, the lawyers of the partner law firm will go to court for you. wenigermiete.de will pay the lawyer's fees and court costs.
From now on, you only pay the rent that is in line with the rent control.
A commission is only due if we have successfully enforced your claim.
The Berlin rent freeze was declared unconstitutional by the Federal Constitutional Court
in Karlsruhe on April 15, 2021. Thus, the concerns of many experts were confirmed and
tenants are threatened with high additional payments. This decision hits Berlin tenants
hard, but there is with the constitutionally approved rent control for a large part of
those affected a solution to reduce their rent. So check now with CONNY how much rent
you can save each month.
The 3 most important points about the law:
The Rent Control is a law to dampen the increase in rents on tight housing markets (§ 556d BGB). It was introduced nationwide in 2015 and is now effective in most federal states. The Rent Control applies in many large cities such as Berlin, Hamburg, Munich or Frankfurt and allows tenants to reduce their rent if it is more than ten percent above the local comparable rent. This makes it currently the most powerful weapon against excessive rents, which is why every tenant should know about it and use it.
In principle, it's quite simple: When renting a new flat, the landlord may not charge an excessive rent. A maximum of 10% above the local comparative rent is allowed. If you have to pay more, you can also demand a reduction in rent during the current tenancy and reclaim the overpaid rent from that point on. But the devil is in the details: The tenant must activate the Rent Control by means of a so-called qualified letter of reprimand, otherwise the landlord can simply keep the excess rent received. The qualified letter of reprimand must meet a number of legal requirements and specifically derive from the local rent index why the rent is excessive. However, if you commission wenigermiete.de, you do not have to worry about this: We will take over the letter of reprimand for you. The landlord can also try to invoke various exceptions to the Rent Control.
The rent cap was declared null and void by the Federal Constitutional Court in Karlsruhe. It is therefore invalid.
No, the landlord cannot terminate you just because you assert your rights or instruct us to do so. And he can't pressure you in any other way. If the tenant complies with his obligations, there is only one way to terminate him: personal use. If you rent the apartment from a company, this is already excluded. Only private persons can register their own use and even then, this is only possible under strict conditions, which many private landlords do not comply with. This means that even in the extremely unlikely case of a (personal use) termination, we have a good chance of averting this.
You only pay a success provision if the rent freeze is overturned. In this case, we receive five times the savings that we were able to enforce for you with the rent control. If we are not successful for you, you will not incur any costs. So if the rent freeze holds up in the Federal Constitutional Court, you pay nothing to wenigermiete.de. And unlike other consulting associations, we become active for you and enforce your claims.
