German term or phrase: MV Seite
I have a sales flyer to translate for a condominium in a German city

Under "Mietenspiegel" there is a table whose headins include
"Whg.L; Wfl. m2; *MV seit*; and Miete Euro/m2"

What does MV stand for:? 'Mietvertrag' maybe?

Explanation:
MV is almost certainly Mietvertrag in this context- and defintely not Mayer-Vorfelder, boo hiss ;)))

@Jonathan: You could always "Mietvertrag seit" in the glossary instead of using the abbreviation? Otherwise I don't see the problem.

Notes to answerer
Asker: I agree with your answer but MV on its own would not be explained. So could you change to rented (lit. rental contract) since ? Otherwise I wouldn't glossarize it.

Asker: I agree with your translation. However in glossary form this "would leave "MV" untranslated. To get it into the glossary can you change to rented (lit. rental contract) 'since? Regards, Jon
