Maybe it doesn't matter that much -or maybe it would be even better if the German wasn't corrected-, but, being an English teacher, I just can't not correct the German when I know some of what could…

Well. thank you both. In the end you were both right. I guess I have been in a state of paranoia, thinking that this evil Rundfunk would keep the money and wouldn't inform the bailiff. As you can…

That's my interpretation as well, but I wonder if there's a loophole. Read this excerpt from Section 557b of the civil code. A change in rent must be declared, but the landlord is unlikely to…
