As a long time non-EU resident, I recommend you not to take such risks for something so trivial and try to find the products legally here instead or get used to the (crappy) alternatives. But if you…

Congstar = T-Mobile Netz, which is supposed to have the best coverage. Recently I had 3 weeks of no service from the T-Mobile Netz, but then as all the providers use the same tower it probably…

OK, not 500 but limited at 100K. But you can do what you want with this 100K. And pay off in up to 10 yrs. Try Verivox.de They show the SWK Bank (who ??) offering 100K to employees (not self…

There are probably as many ways to do performance reviews as there are companies. Some are really good, have a clear structure and you agree on targets, some are little more than window dressing and…

Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me out here. I recently bought an item from a large online furniture retailer here in Germany (am I allowed to say which company?). Unfortunately what I received and…

This sounds confused. Under reserve just means you have the option of applying later for probate as executor... long, arduous, costly - and why would you do that? It sounds like the sollicitor is…

easy: take clippers, or scissors, and start cutting if you're a total newb - watch youtube "how to's". I personally made one for you (and others) - if you speak enough German.

Actually it is very clear. Following what you said I have two questions... - From what I understand I could actually use one of those online websites in English that help complete the forms because…

You are resident in Ireland for tax purposes if you are there for 183 days or more in the year, so as I understand it if you move after July 2nd (or whatever the 182nd day is) then your tax residency…

If you are young enough to qualify for Astra Zeneca, you probably won't have to wait till August. I think it is a really good idea to have a separate thread for each state. Brandenburg has…

@Arunadisi --> glad it worked out well in your case! Did you keep your German health insurance during that time. Also did you 'abmelden' the children when they went to board? Really…

Bear in mind that the test results need to be in English, French or Spanish. That has precluded me getting mine done at the local GP. I seem to have struck lucky, there's a centre in the next town…

Update on this situation: Landlord sent a window specialist to look at the window. The Tischler confirmed that window needs a replacement. Hopefully that will happen soon. the tenant…

This is factually incorrect. A Vollmacht letter signed by the husband is enough to legally use his credit card. Ok, we know nobody does this in practice, however there is no need to throw accusations…

Hi Kiil, thanks for your reply. My neighbors own the property on which the bio bin sits. That property borders with mine and also with the community parcel that is being soiled. I have since taken…

@LauraHH I am purposely ignoring all the previous posts. Depression is a clinical diagnosis. Go to your Hausarzt (GP), get a transfer to a German psychologist who speaks a language you understand…

It may be worth considering buying a new printer , maybe an Epson as you can order new cartrige sets of ink on EBay for next to nothing. My neighbour used to buy sets of 4 cartriges very small ones…

It is legal for the landlord to push the cost of reading the meters and appropriating cost according to squarage within limits of 30-70%. It's also legal to agree on a flat fee in order to save the…

OK Since no-one else has answered, to get the old wires out, just pull them up from between the blades of the contact in the white block with a pliers. To put new ones in you will need a "punch…

hellotoy, Thanks for posting what you found out about "collective heating". On the other side, I'm curious what is NOT considered collective heating? No heat at all for the apartment? S,
