Here you will find questions that we are frequently asked in connection with legal requirements.

Whether a particular declaration via the platform is legally valid depends on the content and the contractual requirements. In principle, agreements can be made via the platform that are binding and should therefore be taken seriously. Exceptions to this are declarations that must be made in a specific form according to the law or contract, e.g. the following cases require the written form:


When concluding a residential rental agreement (§ 550 BGB)
When terminating a tenancy agreement (§ 568 BGB)


Art. 12ff. Swiss Code of Obligations ("OR") e.g. setting of a deadline by the tenant with regard to a rent deposit and announcement of the deposit already made in accordance with (Art. 259g para. 1 OR)
Consent to renovations and alterations to the property by the tenant through the landlord (Art. 260a para. 1 CO)
Agreement regarding restoration of the original condition in the event of renovations or alterations by the tenant as a right in favor of the landlord (Art. 260a para. 2 CO)
Setting a deadline with threat of termination in the event of late payment (Art. 257d CO)
Reminder for conduct in breach of contract with a view to extraordinary termination in accordance with Art. 257f CO
Termination by the tenant, Art. 266l para. 1 CO

If a specific communication medium is used in a contractual relationship, both parties undertake to regularly check the medium for declarations of legal significance.

If there is no formal requirement, so-called declarations of intent can be made via the portal (e.g. appointment or purchase agreements). These declarations of intent are then binding for both parties and should therefore be taken seriously. This is the same practice as with e-mails.

No, not yet. However, this is planned for the future.

With our Terms of Use, the user agrees to two types of communications. On the one hand, these are communications to which Allthings is legally obliged. On the other hand, these are business communications. These include, for example, confirmations or notifications of changes to the terms of use. Notifications are sent to the e-mail address provided by the user during registration.

The customer is not obliged to provide Allthings with user data, but we recommend it.

If no user data such as email, gender, surname and first name are exchanged, this has the disadvantage that the invitation of users has to be done manually and is therefore more time-consuming. This is irrelevant for a small number of tenants. However, if portfolios are managed via the platform, the transfer of personal data via the ERP interface is recommended.
