  1. English Speaking Veterinarian in Ingolstadt?

    Our vet is Dr. Uwe Francke and he is really good. Also he is reachable also during off hours for emergencies. I am assuming he speaks enough English because he was recommended to me 2-3 years ago by by an American expat who didn't speak any German.   Also, welcome to Ingolstadt  
  2. Anmeldung at friend's (owner) place - is it legal?

    I don't think your interpretation here is accurate. From what I could see (See paragraph 2) if you are registered with your primary residence per §17 then if there is a change in your residency for not longer than 6 months, you are not obliged to either register or de-register. But again, not a lawyer, but this is just what I would do.
  3. Anmeldung at friend's (owner) place - is it legal?

    I personally would not de-register. Especially since the law considers it non-residency only over 6 months. Especially also since you said you will fulfill your obligations like paying insurance, Rundfunk extortion fees, etc. By the de-registering, you will just have the unnecessary stress of uncertainty. For me this is quite a no-brainer. This is just my option.
  4. Dog-sitting/pensions in the Freiburg area

    There should be a dog owners facebook group in your area. You might have some luck finding someone there.
  5. What are some good firms that specialize in taxation?

    Assuming Munich is still your location as your profile reads
  6. I'm guessing you haven't watched game of thrones
  7. There are lots of details you are leaving out. Do you have a subtenancy (Untermietungsvertrag) agreement with your flat mate? Or are you both equal tenants of the landlord? Either way, your best option is to contact the landlord if you can. How long do they expect you to be in limbo without a key of your own?! As has been suggested already please join the Mieterverein in your area. They cannot represent you but should be able to advise you. Most likely the keys will need replacing and could be expensive for you. All depends on your rental agreement. I hope you have private liability insurance. Good luck!  
  8. Damage for short stay WG, Haftpflichtversicherung? Options?

    Purely speculating: The landlord could push the cost on all the tenants. How that plays out for you I can't tell since I don't know the details of your subtenancy contract. If your friend already returned your deposit to you, I don't see how they can make you pay. If you want to be a nice person, just pay for the repairs. You clearly knew that it would damage the surface. You said you always used coasters before.
  9. Damage for short stay WG, Haftpflichtversicherung? Options?

    You wrote in your PM that since you only "did as you were told" by placing the hot pan on the counter top, and hence are not liable. This isn't really true. Whether or not you can get away with not paying is a different question.  
  10. Damage for short stay WG, Haftpflichtversicherung? Options?

    If you don't mind OP, I will post here the details you sent me by PM.   So basically, the OP asked the main tenant where they can place the hot frying pan after cooking. The main tenant told him it was okay to use place it on the granite counter top without using an Untersetzer. As a result, there is some discolouration.   OP, where does the carpet come in?
  11. Arbeitsbescheinigung from previous employer

    I don't know if you speak German, but here It basically says that when you left the last employer, they were expected to give you one. If they still refuse after your demand for one, you can file a lawsuit. Hopefully it won't come to that. Another thing you could do if they refuse, is to tell the Arbeitsagentur this. As per what I read in § 312 SGB III, they are entitled to make a demand directly. I don't think they would refuse then. So: Yes, but then again, I am not a lawyer.  
  12. Damage for short stay WG, Haftpflichtversicherung? Options?

    So to recap, you had a subtenancy (Untermietung) contract with one of the WG residents. During this time, the other tenants said you could place something on the carpet, which you did. This somehow damaged the carpet, which belongs to the owner, who is now asking the WG occupants to pay for it. Could you be a bit more specific about what it is you placed on the carpet? This could more or less determine fault. For example, if you placed (exaggerated) a burning log on a carpet because your apartment mates said it's okay, I don't think you can pass on the blame to someone else. On the other hand, if you placed the corner of your bed on the carpet, this I imagine would be a perfectly normal thing to do. My suggestion is to not tell them you have a liability insurance. They could even be just trying to get you pawn off the problem onto your liability insurance. It's even possible that the owner just wants to get a new carpet. Hence, please provide more details. As always, I'm not a lawyer, this is just my opinion.
  13. work contracts

    Hope your husband will talk to a lawyer specializing in Arbeitsrecht as Lleogyr and others have suggested
  14. Game of Thrones (TV series) (Spoilers )

    So the Sky Ticket costs 4,99 the first month and then 9,99 from the second month onwards. What other shows/channels are included in it? Because if it is just GoT, then we are paying the 4,99/9,99 for watching an episode every week, so about 4 episodes?
  15. Apartment cleanliness on move in/out (esp kitchen)

    You could take the contract regardless and then during the handover when it is usually custom to write down any already present scratches and damages, also make a note of the cleanliness of the apartment. This way when you move out, you could make sure that you are only liable to leave it in the state you found it in, or that they cannot ask for cleaning fees from you. But I am not a lawyer and this is just what I would do.   You are right, but this could easily apply to other aspects like walls not painted even though the contract you signed states you have to paint the walls the usual sterile white when you move out.
