How do I find housing assistance

Questions to social housing assistance

It is of course best not to let any rent arrears arise in the first place. Because if the going gets tough and certain deadlines are missed by the tenant, there is an inevitable threat of losing the apartment. The longer the termination and subsequent legal proceedings continue, the fewer the protection options that you as a tenant may initially still be able to use for yourself.
Incidentally, in the case of a termination without notice due to rental debts, it does not matter whether the rental debts were incurred through no fault of their own or whether the loss of an apartment would represent social hardship for the tenant household. The apartment is also an economic asset. For this reason, tenancy law even provides for a separate, immediate surrender claim by the landlord if the tenant does not pay. This is often underestimated.
And as a rent debtor, it is not always possible to rely on the help of the public sector.
Otherwise, the earlier you contact the property management and make appropriate realistic and appropriate offers to regulate the claims, the greater, in our experience, the greater their willingness to forego legal action for the time being. But he doesn't have to. The debtor usually bears the costs of these legal steps. Furthermore, installment offers should not be empty promises.
Furthermore, it is absolutely necessary to read judicial documents carefully, to comply with the deadlines there and to react in good time.
If you are not able to pay the rent yourself, social housing assistance should be addressed. But they also check very carefully the self-help options and the appropriateness of financial help (see above).
