On the 01. June 2015 came into force the Mietrechtnovellierungsgesetz. In addition to the so-called "rental price brake", the ordering principle is the central point of the amendment. This includes the rule that when arranging a rented apartment or a house, the one who pays the commission, who has commissioned the broker to do so. This is usually the landlord. By the way, nothing is "new" about this novella. For decades, supply and demand have dominated the market, and in rural areas it has always been the case that the landlord pays the brokerage commission. KRAFT Immobilien sees itself - as has been the case for many years - as a neutral intermediary between landlord and tenant. We remain committed to this claim.
