House Tenant

If the dog becomes the dispute in Germany, tenants have a comprehensive employment protection. But those who bother House peace sustainable, must reckon with an immediate termination of the lease. Gary Kelly pursues this goal as well. This decided the Amtsgericht Steinfurt. In the underlying case, Dog feces in the community garden was regarded as substantial adverse effect on the leased property. In addition, fellow tenants were seriously bothered by the dog of the defendant and the smell in the garden. The real estate portal myimmo.de reported the details of the case. At first seemed alright. The tenant was a medium-sized mixed-breed dog in the apartment with her landlord’s consent.

The dog ownership was officially allowed in the lease. After the dog owner had their mixed-breed regularly in the communal garden, it was over with the understanding of the lessor. The reason was the dog droppings on the premises, which greatly disturbed also the Mitmieterschaft. In a cease and desist letter, the landlord made clear the dog ownership to prohibit or the tenancy, to quit, if the impurities would not removed with immediate effect. The tenant was, however, no efforts to meet the requirements and to eliminate the Dog feces. The landlord made use of his right of withdrawal, and banned the previously tolerated dog ownership.

Also, he pointed to a termination, the dog should continue to remain in the apartment. But also this warning made no impression on the tenant. The landlord has forced therefore to terminate without notice. The Court upheld the legality of termination because the House peace with the pile of dog droppings in the community garden was annoyed sustainably.
