In case of a claim for default remedies, the notification should be in writing (e.g. e-mail) for evidential purposes.


the tenant may maintain the tenancy and demand performance from the landlord. However, the tenant may not demand performance if there is an obstacle that the landlord cannot overcome, or if performance would cause such great inconvenience or expense to the landlord that it is substantially disproportionate to the tenant's interest in the landlord's performance. Should the difficulties disappear within a reasonable time, the tenant may nevertheless demand performance.
The tenant loses his or her right to demand performance if he or she waits unreasonably long to make the demand.


If the lessor fails to deliver the goods at the time of delivery, the lessee shall request the lessor to deliver within a reasonable additional period for performance. If the lessor fails to deliver the goods within the additional period, the lessee may terminate the lease.

If the goods are delivered after the additional time limit set by the consumer or after the time of delivery that was decisive for the conclusion of the contract, a claim for rescission must be brought within a reasonable time after the buyer became aware of the delivery.


The lessee may claim compensation for any loss suffered as a result of the delay. However, this does not apply if the lessor proves that the delay is due to an obstacle beyond the lessor's control, the consequences of which could not reasonably have been taken into account at the time of the contract, avoided or overcome.
