After 61 years, wife steindorfer from her apartment

every Morning and Every evening have to think Margrit steindorfer to the date: 30. June, 2019. The 84-Year-old breaks out in tears as she speaks in their own four walls over their living situation: "Sometimes I wish that I Wake up in the Morning." As the Swiss Life has terminated her and her 89-year-old man in the apartment, was broken for a world together. "An old tree can not simply transplant," says the Pensioner. This tree memories from six decades of hanging.

son and daughter are in the 4.5-room apartment large. Her husband, originally an Austrian, received in this period, the Swiss citizenship, and Margrit Steindorfer went to work in the Department store EPA, as this was still in rain village. Half a year remains of the Stone dorfer's now still in the apartment. Enjoy not more, to leave this time, says Margrit Steindorfer.

The couple is just one of nearly 120 tenants at the Riedthofstrasse, which was terminated last summer. The property owner, Swiss Life has chosen for a so-called blank notice of termination – mass termination, send a crash with a subsequent allows replacement Building. The residential blocks are from the 1950s. A renovation would not be worth it, says the Swiss Life and this is justified by, among other things, with the changes in the regulations for earthquake safety. The inhabitants, with those of the TA language, feel, however, satisfied in the settlement. The depth of the rent (a 4.5-room apartment costs 1000 Swiss francs) should help.

sub-centres in focus

Walter fear from the tenants Federation (MV) sees in the actions of the Swiss Life System: "blank resignations are the best way to drive the prices on a bounce in the amount." To renovate instead, it will often never sacrificed good quality of the yield. "It often hits older people and tenants with lower incomes," says fear. "Age is a huge Handicap in the apartment."

are empty dismissals, especially for large property management companies in the Trend. In the city of Zurich, for example, has doubled its share in the renovation or new construction since 2008, more than. In 2017, it came in 48 percent of the tags to empty dismissals. The Canton does not Pay. For anxiety, it is clear that the Trend has long since reached the Agglomeration: "The big rent jumps, we are now witnessing in the sub-centres." It will calculates really tough, says fear. If it is profitable for the real estate company then preferred a blank termination. In this way, about noise complaints prevent, because during the new construction phase, no tenant living in the settlement. The rental losses later through higher Rents to compensate.

the design of The Swiss Life was carried out in consultation with the municipality of the rain village. This is now deceived by the insurance company. Municipality of Schreiber, Stefan Pfyl is a reference to a conversation in the spring of 2018: "The municipality had placed a Etappierung is necessary." In this procedure, the construction phase and the redundancies were made in several steps. A more coordinated approach to help the Terminated would have been in accordance with Pfyl better.

A etappierter Plan was originally the favoured approach of the insurance, such as from a feasibility study to the year 2016. The rain village was for many years assumed to be of such a configuration. The municipality would like to intervene now in the case of the Swiss Life business line: "We insist that this replacement project is not implemented in the present planning," said Pfyl. From the point of view of the municipal Council, it is incomprehensible that a social insurance such as Swiss Life, the lives of the LPP-funds of the Insured, so ruthlessly the previous.

Swiss Life is resisting the representation. The municipality has always been about the structural approach-informed. Last may, we have met to discuss the upcoming layoffs. Since it was passed explicitly to "not etappierte implementation of planning," says Swiss Life spokeswoman Tatjana stem. Would not quit empty, was to be expected with a doubling of the construction period. That would be for neighbourhoods and an additional burden.

Regardless of who says the truth: The victims, the tenants are tenants. At an information event in the summer, various residents wanted to know how they would be supported in the case of the apartment search of the Swiss Life: not at all, was the then reply. There were not enough flats on the market, said an insurance representative who is supposed to have threatened, in the end, according to several event participants: if Necessary, the settlement could be cleared also by the police.

"In the communication and implementation of the termination are error, for which we apologize," says spokesperson for the tribe. The insurance did, however, respond. The residents were informed in a Letter of support you can expect. Including individual mentoring by Livit AG, which takes over the management of Swiss Life, and a pre-ietrecht for apartments from your own Portfolio.

time requested

Some tenants do not want to accept the termination. At the conciliation office in Dielsdorf several processes are currently running. In some cases, the tenants reached a Lease of two to three months, in some cases supplemented with a financial compensation for the move. For Walter the fear that the tenants ' Association on the proposals are totally inadequate: "The authority has not yet realized that the search for housing for local people with limited budgets, it is also in your district run the gauntlet, for it takes a lot of time." The Same applies to the heads of the Swiss Life holding stubbornly cling to your time plan.

More time, the Stone dorfer's need. "To be able to properly search, we would have to put us first a Computer. We don't want that," says Margrit Steindorfer. "Not of Swiss Life's sake." In desperation, she turned to the congregation President Max Walter (SVP). Rain village is the town in which she and her husband has over 60 years of taxes. You should expect a little help, says Steinsdorfer. Walter told her, however, that the municipality is bound by the hands. It is a matter of private reason, the Swiss Life. Not even a retirement apartment, he was able to offer the couple. Such does not exist in the rain village.

The municipality is meanwhile involved in the planning of a redevelopment project: the Ford Lichtentaler Allee, the largest development area in the Canton outside of the city of Zurich. According to the Europa Avenue up to the year 2040, a promenade, a place for business and housing for an additional 6500 people. The settlement of the Stone dorfer's is located directly next to the prestigious project. The modest residential blocks will not fit into the overall concept? The municipality disagrees. "The district with its structures for long-term residents, with an affordable rent, for the municipality is very important," says municipal clerk, Pfyl. A importance, of the residents up to now, only little have noticed.
