    3. If you have previous knowledge from other sources about a property which we offer, this previous knowledge should be disclosed to us within three days. Otherwise you are obligated by way of compensation for damages to reimburse those expenses which arise due to your leaving us in ignorance of the existing previous knowledge.

  10. Data Protection
    1. MWZ 24 will treat your data confidentially and will only pass on your data to a third party if there is a connection with your commissioning of MWZ 24.

    2. As part of the landlord’s commissioning, he assures MWZ 24 that all required permits and authorization to rent or sublet exist. It is not possible for the Agency to verify this. MWZ 24 assumes no liability for damages which arise from a lack of permits or authorizations.

Claims for damages against MWZ 24 are excluded unless they are founded on malicious aforethought or gross negligence or, in the case of injury to life, limb or health, active negligence or strict liability. The limitation period for asserting a claim for damages is one year. The start of the limitation period is determined by the statutory regulations.
  12. Right to Compensation in Case of Fraud or Evasion
    1. In the case of fraud or evasion, MWZ 24 reserves the right to demand a proper level of compensation.
    2. In case of any prohibited disclosure to a third party regarding housing data provided by MWZ 24, MWZ 24 will claim damages if a successful brokerage by MWZ 24 was hindered due to the illegal disclosure.
