The Act Limiting Housing Rents in Berlin (MietenWoG Bln), the so-called rental cap, came into effect on 23/02/2020. Various courts have already passed judgements. However, these decisions do not have any effect on the applicability of the Act, i.e. the Act is valid and must be complied with. Here we inform you about further developments.
Due to the Corona crisis, the landlords may be unable to fulfil their duties to report and inform, provided for in the Act, in due time. In this case, the State of Berlin holds out the prospect of waiving sanctions such as fines in the event of breaches of legal obligations justified for this reason.
