Standard Renovations: no kitchen and bathroom

Hi all,

(sorry for writing in English, I am an expat...)

I am renting a room in Copenhagen and since a few weeks ago, major renovations of the building have begun (replacement of the water pipes).

Therefore:

- I had no water in the whole apartment for a week
- Walls in the bathroom and kitchen have been torn open
- I cannot use the bathroom for 3 weeks
- I have workers creating dust and noise in my house from 7am to 15pm

On the bright side:
- Camping bathroom has been provided in the backyard (shared with the rest of the neighbors)
- I have been warned in advance about the water interruptions in the bathroom (but not about those in the kitchen)

Given that the situation is very annoying, I was wondering if I am entitled to ask a rent reduction for the issues created...

Thanks in advance

Hi Odilon

Account to paragraph 55 in law regarding rental housing, your landlord has the right to start making necesarry renovations in the flat, as long as he gives you 3 months notice ( 6 weeks, if he is doing the renovations himself) if the renovations is not a major issue for you.

The renovations also has to be structured, so they have a minimal negative impact on you as a tenant

I would argue ( and please note, that I am not a lawyer, so this is as much a guess) that these renovations are a major issue to you, and therefore I would countact your landlord, and request a decrease in your rental expenses for the affected period. If he is not willing to grant you one, you will have to contact your local renting board (in Danish: Huslejenævn) who would rule in this case

Link to the law (Sorry, but only in Danish, but Google Translate will probabaly get you a long way)

Thanks a lot for your reply Padehatten, I really appreciate it!

I will use the information you provided to discuss with my landlord. I am quite confident we will reach an agreement without having to resort to the Huslejenævn.

Thanks again

Hi Odilon

Best of luck.

Remember to keep as much communication as possible with your landlord, via e-mail, just in case
