A 1960s building in Munich is to be renovated.

Many socially disadvantaged tenants will soon have to move out at the instigation of WSB Bayern - and that in the middle of the corona pandemic.

  • Although politicians are allegedly trying to improve, there is no end

    in sight to

    the

    housing shortage

    in

    Munich *

    .

  • In the north of the city in

    Hasenbergl

    , numerous tenants are now to give way due to a renovation.

  • People should look for somewhere else to stay.

    Does

    WSB Bayern

    practice

    a typical scam here?

Update from January 21st, 5.49 p.m

.: It's about a big renovation project - but the conversion plans of the

WSB

company

in

Hasenbergl

could

ensure that people from

70 apartments

stand on the street and cannot go back to their home after the renovation!

Yesterday, the

tz

on the

Entmietungshammer

in

Paulckestraße

reported

(see below)

.

Politics is now taking action.

The

Left's

city ​​council

requests a

conservation statute

for the northern Hasenbergl.

This could

stop

the “progressive displacement” of tenants by the three large private housing companies in the district -

WSB

Bayern

,

Dawonia

and

Südhausbau

.

The left demands in the application: A sell-off by converting into condominiums should be prevented.

"Time is of the essence to protect the people in Hasenbergl with a conservation statute," says parliamentary group leader

Stefan Jagel

.

The city must act: “The examples make it clear that the apartments are in the wrong hands.

Where profit is the only thing that counts, people count little. "

The people in Hasenbergl in particular are dependent on their home.

"Many cases of hardship live here," said

Sven Karadi

, chairman of the

Paulckeblock tenant community

, to

tz

.

Poor and sick people who simply cannot afford a more expensive apartment.

The WSB offered those affected 5,000 euros to move out by the end of January.

Those who go by the end of March will still get 3000 euros. 

In the middle of the Corona crisis: WSB Bayern is throwing entire block of tenants out of their apartments - "Typical scam"

Our first report from January 20:

Munich - two apartment houses in

Hasenbergl are

threatened with demolition - and that in the middle of the pandemic.

In the long term, an entire building block at Stanigplatz is to be renovated.

The residents of two wings with one-room apartments come first.

You should be out by the end of March.

Around 70 apartments at Paulkestrasse 3 and 7 are affected.

"Many cases of hardship live here," says Sven Karadi, chairman of the

Paulckeblock tenant community

.

The physically ill, the mentally ill and people who simply cannot afford another apartment.

If the tenants really have to leave, some of them face

homelessness

.

“The housing market in Munich has been swept clean,” says Karadi.

“We are also in a pandemic.” As Karadi himself learned when asked, the tenants should not be allowed to return after the renovation.

It was rumored that the apartments would be converted into two-room apartments.

But

WSB Bayern

denied that

on

tz

demand.

Munich: Renovation in Hasenbergl poses problems for many tenants - "A lot of mistrust"

The district committee (BA) Feldmoching-Hasenbergl recently invited Alfons Doblinger, the owner's boss, Housing and Settlement Construction Bavaria (WSB), to a meeting.

“You can't live there during the renovation,” he said there.

“We wrote letters to the tenants and tried to talk to them.

We met with a lot of mistrust. ”The WSB now wants to inform those affected as soon as possible.

The first

shock letter from WSB

reached the tenants in September.

"We would like to tackle Paulckestrasse 1-9 as a renovation project," it said.

Buildings 3 and 7 are initially affected. According to another letter, the other wings will probably only be renovated in ten to 15 years - the tenants here can stay in the apartments while the work is being carried out.

A spokesman stated that in houses 3 and 7 “the work cannot be carried out when the people are occupied.

A timely start would be an advantage, as companies currently have free capacities. ”The work should take ten months.

According to the first information letter, the

real estate company

supports

tenants in

finding an

apartment

, which is known to be difficult in Munich.

The WSB offered tenants EUR 5,000 to move out by the end of January and EUR 3,000 by the end of March.

Some have already left.

Temporary replacement apartments cannot be offered, says the spokesman.

The WSB, which according to the website has 13,660 apartments in Munich,

does not have enough free living space

.

Munich Hasenbergl: "That's a typical scam" - does WSB Bayern only want to get rid of tenants?

Christian Schwarzenberger from the

citizens' initiative Ausspekelte

, which fights for Munich's tenants, explains: “In my opinion, you want to get rid of people.

This is a typical scam.

You save on maintenance for years until the house has to be renovated. ”The building is now in a desolate condition.

Sven Karadi's apartment is particularly affected.

“I didn't have any renovations before I moved in eleven years ago,” he says.

The building was erected in 1961/62.

According to WSB, it is still in its original state.

For Karadi this means: the windows are leaking, he often has to heat at night to keep from freezing.

As soon as the heating is on, it gets noisy.

"I've been complaining about this for over two years and I was held up with letters."

Like Schwarzenberger, Gabriele Meißner (SPD) from the BA Feldmoching-Hasenbergl also wants to help the tenants.

She is the chairman of the tenants' council and demands a meeting with the WSB and representatives of the tenant community, and she also demands replacement apartments.

And: The WSB would have to pay those affected to move.

Munich tenants' association: "Egoism continues to bloom" - despite Corona

Throwing out tenants in the

Corona crisis *

- unfortunately not uncommon in Munich, says Volker Rastätter, Managing Director of the Munich Tenants' Association.

There are cases of actually existing personal use and those in which the tenant protection groups from the tenants' association get the impression that the landlords only want to re-rent the apartment at a higher price.

"The egoism continues to blossom," summarizes Rastätter.

"As a tenants' association, we negotiate longer move-out periods in many cases."

The

tenants at the Paulckestraße

advises Rastätter: "Sign without legal advice any agreement that you take off, because the

market for affordable housing

in Munich is deserted.

It can happen that these tenants end up on the street. ”It is also important that the letters to the tenants are not a notice of termination.

The tenants have the right to have replacement living space paid for by the landlord for the time of the work.

He doesn't have to find it for you, though.

Since the landlord has a large number of apartments in this case, the

Munich Tenants' Association

appeals

to him to offer replacement apartments from the portfolio.

After the work has been completed, the tenants must be given the opportunity to move back into their apartments.

However, the landlord could possibly increase the rent after the work.

But strict rules also apply here.
