I have read some of the history with interest and was wondering if there are any further meetings planned in London. If there are, I would be interested in attending. I am also invested in Rubenstrasse and am interested to know:

1. Views on OS
2. if Ochel has gone into liquidation
3. whether people have got a german lawyer and how sucessful that has been
4. places to find current prices on similar property
5. how to find a better agent or manage the renatl process better


Got some answers here but try to contact you but it does not let me , maybe the other way around / London based here

Hi Pippy,

Your entry has some specifics missing, but I think I am further along the road compared to you with this dog-with-fleas investment as it only (!!) cost me 2200E compared to your 5000E in 2010. Have you left Dr O, for example?

You need to read my entry of 18 Aug.

For me the biggest issue is Hausgeld as it went up 40E in Nov and I cannot pass this on to the tenant. Haulsgeld is now costing 225E per month. That’s at lot of money to keep the communal areas up to scratch and it also costs me more euros to prop the mortgage payments up.

My lender All is intransigent to my requests to reduce my monthly payments even though the outstanding debt was reduced by 8k by Dr O when I parted company with them.

Regarding property value I to own in Rub and have just completed a value survey. Take a seat…

From the results I have I would say that if your property is located on the Grazer Damm side of highway 103 between 60-75k E. If you are on the Innbrucker Platz side of hightway 103 75-85k E. If your property is on the city centre side of Innsbrucker Platz it will be worth more. Basically, the closer your property is to the centre of the city, the higher it value.

Regarding your mortgage, if it is fixed, it goes without saying, there will be penalties.

Hi just wondering can you recommend how to get it valued or who through..? Know you cant be too specific on this forum...and have you had success in selling. we are going to look into it as doesnt seem to be going away other than creating a hole in our pockets.

Not sure how many people still visit this forum given the date of the last entry.

I am now with axium and am looking to establish a voting block to make sure that the hausgeld is reduced at the next rubenstrasse meeting. If you are interested in forming a voting block please leave feedback.

Hi pipeslice,

We are not much of a voting block given that there are only 2 of us in nearly a month of my posting.

You need to have a property in rubenstrasse, then we have a common cause. So when axium attend the annual rubenstrasse committee meeting they go along and say we have 2 votes against any more hausgeld rises. In fact I would go for a reduction in hausgeld (60 euro per month rise in 2 years - what do they spend the money on?!!)

Get back to me on what you think. I will make sure I visit this site again within te next week.

Just checked my emails for 2011: Axium contacted me on 26 June 2012 about the Rubenstrasse hausgeld committee meeting of 27 June 2011. So it stands to reason that the next meeting is in late June 2012.

Hi,

I actually live in Berlin and was looking at buying a property to live in. Through doing this I realised that prices in Berlin are up by about 10% on last year. This has been backed up by Die Zeit which has claimed that major cities such as Berlin, Munich and Hamburg are experiencing a property bubble at the moment.

So in short it should be possible to sell one, the difficulty will be if you have a tenant the buyer will probably need to be an investor unless you are prepared to go through the lengthy process of evicting them.

Where is your Wohnung?

Dear all,

Apologies for the delay in getting back to you all.

To be part of the voting block we all need to have two things in common: an apartment in Rubenstrasse and the letting agent has to be Axium. (I suppose if you have another letting agent for your Rubenstrasse apartment you could email then instead.)

I reckon the annual hausgeld meeting is at the end of this month. Normally Axium give just a days notice of the meeting. So my plan is we all email on approximately the same day before the meeting.

To give everybody time to revisit t
his website I propose we email axium next Wednesday 20 June or Thursday 21 June.

What I would like to achieve is a reduction in hausgeld by at least 40E. This would take monthly hausgeld down to approx 200E. At this time I do not think it is feasible to get hausgeld down any further.

So my email to axium will contain instructions not to vote for any increase in hausgeld and to target various unspecified costs which will mean hausgeld is reduced to approx 200E.

I am not sure how you all feel about this…so feedback would be much appreciated.

Axium details are as follows:

Steffen.Adebahr

@

axium.de

Use your initiatiative on how to construct his email address.

I will be back on this website againat the weekend to see the feedback.

Keith
