Dialogue is always better than conflict, but if a conflict is impossible to solve, you have the opportunity to complain. Your complaint must be in writing and only exceptionally concern incidences more than two weeks old.
If you want to file a complaint aganist a fellow resident, you must make a written complaint outlining whom the complaint is made against, what the complaint is about and when the reason for the complaint took place.
You can use Kollegiekontoret's complaint form.
The complaint must be sent to email@example.com
Kollegiekontoret treats the complaint and assesses if the tenant the claim is against is to have a written warning.
In case of repeated written warnings regarding the same violation of the house rules, the violating tenant's lease may be cancelled (with 3 months notice) or terminated (with short notice).
In very serious cases Kollegiekontoret can terminate the lease without further notice.
If your complaint has been treated and you are not satisfied with the outcome, you can address the tenants’ complaint board (Beboerklagenævn) of the municipality.
The tenants’ complaint board e.g. deals with issues regarding:
- the condition of the residence when moving in and out
- house regulations, harassment etc.
- right of disposal
- water and heating accounts
The tenants’ complaint board can e.g. make decisions regarding whether:
- a decision in the resident democracy is valid
- a resident must have a warning
- the resident must be given a conditional notice (the lease will be cancelled or terminated if the resident violates the same house rule again)
Both residents and hall of residence can move on to the rent tribunal if they are dissatisfied with a decision made in the tenants’ complaint board. However, possible warnings are final.
Find further information regarding the tenants’ complaint board on: www.aarhus.dk/beboerklage (only available in Danish).
