  1. Who here lives in Leipzig?!

    yes! 6 and 7 years old, finally getting out of my abusive marriage and trying to get in a better place, physically and emotionally... But I guess no one here is living in Leipzig  
  2. Hey! I may have an opportunity in Leipzig and having lived in Berlin for many years and now in Magdeburg (which I hate) I am intrigued by Leipzig.  I have only been twice and it seems nice.  I  have two kids, so schools and safety are really important to me.  I really want a city that offers culture, diversity, and arts.  Anyone live in Leipzig and love it? hate it? or just have an opinion? thank you

  6. Division of Property - Divorce

    so I do not live in Berlin but because the house is in Berlin it is better to join that one or can I join the one in Magdeburg? thank you!!!!
  7. Division of Property - Divorce

    Thank you, as far as I understand the divorce proceedings are separate from our assets and how to split them, we have split our bank account last year already.  Meaning that if I have to sue him it would not fall under family law and essentially having nothing to do with us being married or not.  The tenant knows we are both owners and I have discussed with her the issue in which she pointed out to me that she has a contract with him (as he asked her to deposit the rent to his bank account, of course). I did visit a lawyer about this issue already and told me he did not think it was worth it to sue him YET.... I know I need to speak to the lawyer again for the next part.  I have such bad fears with lawyers but know it is inevitable...  Mabye it is a good idea to join a verein for homeowners.. maybe they give legal advice? what do you think?
  8. Division of Property - Divorce

    hey! I am going through a divorce and we own 2 properties together.  One is cheap and I want to sell it (he does not) and the other is in Berlin and I want to live in it!  The house in Berlin is rented out for the next 2 years.  This is VERY problematic and I HAVE spoken with a lawyer.  She (the tenant) has a limited contract because in the contract it states we want to move back so the children can attend school.  The contract also does not have my name on it.  She has a rental agreement with my ex only.  I am an owner and on the grundbuch.  The lawyer did not recommend that I sue to get my name on the contract but to wait to make sure she does indeed move out and that my ex does not prolong the contract without my permission. We both do not want to sell the property but for different reasons.  He wants to rent it and use it as income and I want to live in it with the kids.  Right now we live 155 km away from Berlin which is another major issue, but I am hoping I can find a way to move there with the kids... the town we are in is not where he is from and he was jobless for almost a year and just recently got a job, so we will see how that goes (he ALWAYS loses his jobs within a year).  I already feel this will be expensive because of lawyer fees... I will NOT ALLOW the property to be rented....  Should I take out the insurance for a lawyer now? I have heard you have to wait 12 months to use it which in principle would be perfect...    Any advice? thank you
  9. i just did, thank you!
  10. Annegus can I private message you? I am going through a divorce with shared owned property and I am so confused!!!!
