Document understanding justifies reproduction of documents if the operating expenses in the letter box lands to tenants often fight their way through multiple pages and read carefully, understand the individual items. Not rarely doubt occur then the tenant, so he asks for an insight into the settlements with the landlord. What rights he then at such a meeting, said the real estate portal myimmo.de. In the case of a tenant had come with his camera to a conversation with the landlord, where the current operating expenses should be discussed. The tenant wanted to photograph the evidence of the statement of operating costs, to peruse the pictures alone at home the documents and to check whether the correct amounts were posted for his apartment. The home owners in turn denied him this wish, whereupon the tenant his claim for document inspection saw injured. The case was heard in the District Court of Munich which gave the plaintiff right.
Thus would be equivalent to taking pictures of documents only a modern type of transcript. Since it was allowed to take notes during such a conversation it is also allowed to use modern and common technique. So documents are likely to be, easily copied, scanned or photographed there a such duplication neither damage to the documents still the landlord costs.
