rent for month december issue
we got payment reminder from landlord (entrakt) for december – we paid for january; gerd gave oral ok to start paying from january, but apparently this never got taken in account at their end we already payed (aska) gerd points us to ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ > catch 22 because their accounting isn’t aware of the oral agreement
end of november 2018 the oral agreement was made | the contract says 1 december though
- get written confirmation of the oral agreement (e.g. email)
- forward it to bookkeeping email@example.com
every Friday afternoon there’s a sort of centralised complaining point with entrakt at the climbing wall place = at the other wing (entrance through the skatepark entrance Industrielaan, or though the elevator hall none obvious way thingie)
betz follows up?
warranty rue manchester
w will ask sarah (brussels gewest) – as soon as paperwork is ready she’ll reach out (last communication mid januari) normally they have 3 months - should be end of march latest
w would take this (whole board to go to kbc)
writing a letter (recommande) but first get the form mail sent to firstname.lastname@example.org

interactions with landlord
last monday 4th feb around noon gerd was in space with some electrician, without anyone present; he notified s ok
elec is fixed
- we have decent earth wire connection now
- still issue with chained differentiels > can break serially and we don’t have access to the one on the first floor
hsbxl gives support for wifi ? important that the board communicates in unison to the landlord (both on support for wifi; camera; unexpected bills etc.)
- requests in this sense : standard answer is ' we’ll discuss it in the meeting' > further contact: w’s phone
there are camera’s at each entrance
w is going to install some extra camera’s and will indicate them clearly
should perhaps think about legal aspects
leverage for better elec > if power goes down the camera footage might get lost
