  1. Father and kid playdates in Frankfurt?

    Didn't manage to do anything yet.  I'll message you my number for a WhatsApp group.  Even if it's to share war stories and advice until we can arrange a meet up.    I'm in Kronberg if anyone is nearby. 
  2. Father and kid playdates in Frankfurt?

    I don't know if this is still active, I didn't get a chance to join a meet up yet. I am interested in a dads meeting (I have 18 month old daughter) but as we are starting to move apartment at the moment I probably won't be able to join until mid February, which would roll over to 1st Sunday in March assuming the meet up is happening on the same timings.  
  3. I got mine last week from Hochtaunus office in Bad Homburg.  I took last 3 wages slips, my registration documents (I lived in same flat for over 5 years so easy), passport, passport photo, German insurance card.    The lady scanned everything, printed my certificate and I paid 8euro in 15 minutes.    Let's see what it does for me in the next crazy Brexit months. 
  4. Ok looks pretty easy for Taunus area...   They sent me a form back to my email asking for information and the below + an appointment already booked in the reply.   For the issue of a certificate of permanent residence you must personally appeal to me. I need your passport or passport, a biometric passport photo, your last 3 proof of earnings and your health insurance card. Fees are € 8.   You can also come to open speaking time on Mondays and Thursdays between 8.30 and 11.30. Then please pull a waiting number in area 8. You will find me in house 3, 2nd floor. Open consultation hours in the area of EU / Commitment Declaration (area 8): Mondays from 8.30am to 11.30am Thursdays from 8.30am to 11.30am At other times only by appointment! You are welcome to make an appointment under or under! Telephone availability: Tuesdays from 9.30 am to 11.30 am, Thursdays from 1.30 pm to 3.30 pm
  5. Great, looks pretty simple in terms of paperwork. Just need to talk to FF now and how to do it there.  Thanks :)
  6. Yes exactly, this is where I first heard about it.   Still I am not clear on what I need to do to get this certificate, do I just need to take my registration from my town hall to somewhere or also tax returns or any other random stuff?
  7. I was thinking to get it just in case I need to prove at somepoint I have been here for 5 years. No one knows what will be needed for us to stay in case of a no deal or bad brexit.
  8. At first was one crack and over time more have appeared so its surely due to the sink material.  Pretty sure they can be fixed with a repair kit as they are only hairline surface but there are now several and my wife thinks landlord would notice and best to leave as they are and discuss how to handle.    I am just worried we won't agree and he will keep my deposit and I'll be screwed because of a poor sink.  It's my first flat in Germany so want to be aware of all possible outcomes and options.    Appreciate the advice. 
  9. Wow, good to know as the way I interpreted it was that it would be 75 each. I was searching several sites and they seemed to indicate this.
  10. The sink is built into a unit with cupboard and drawers built in. The mirror is not attached to it but flush with the edge of unit. On top of the mirror is a top type of matching wooden shelf with built in lights and shaver plug, also half way up the mirror is a matching cupboard on the way.   So my concern is that if the sink needs to be replaced it means the unit it is in needs to be replaced and then the wall cabinet and top shelf with lights also because we might not be able to buy the matching unit containing the sink anymore.
  11. I don't know, I read it on a "things you should know about renting in germany" post somewhere but can't remember where,
  12.   Yeah, I will see what he says regarding this and if he accepts as wear and tear. I can't prove I didn't damage it and he can't prove I did but the way the cracks are appearing all over the inside of the bowl shows it is random stuff and not from any damage by me.   I hope that worst case I take the 75€ hit as you say.   Did I also read somewhere that when you move out if something needs to be replaced like this then you deduct 10% of the cost for each year you lived there for normal depreciation? Is there something in German law somewhere on this?
  13. Yes I have insurance, should it come from mine or the landlords? If I had smashed the sink or done something stupid to it I would expect that I would have to claim on mine but for hairline cracks due to normal ageing I would expect to fall to landlord or is there some strange rules around this?
  14. The leaving notice will be delivered today so I expect he will then phone me so I want to be prepared in case of any issues.   The Kleinreparaturen is this point that I must pay the first €75 of damages and landlord pays the rest right?
