  1. Hello,   Can anyone recommend a lawyer in Berlin that speaks English well, to help with an issue in my renovated apartment that I bought 4 years ago and the lack of sound insulation installed in the upstairs neighbor's apartment? I had an acoustic specialist come and conduct tests, and the sound doesn't fall within the German building regulations. The developers have ignored my emails, although there is a 5-year warranty for fixing defects. At this point, I would like to consult a lawyer to see how to proceed.  many thanks!
  2. My house is on a street with scarce street parking. The house has a garage and parking spot in front of the garage. I moved in several months ago, and on about ten occasions since I moved in someone has parked in my parking spot, blocking me from using my garage and parking spot. In looking at my options I found two services that offer an app, which you use to take pictures of the offender's car and send to lawyers and they will automatically send a cease and desist letter and penalties for the repeat offender. The point is you don't have to call a tow company. And if I understood correctly, you can make a little money on the penalties e.g. 40 euros at The other one I found was . They say it is done at no cost to you. Has anyone tried these? Are they legit? Sounds a little too good to be true...   I will have to put up one of those "parken verboten" signs as part of the process. I don't like to be heavy handed about it, especially if it might be neighbors who are just occassionally doing it, but I paid quite a bit for house and for the benefits of that garage and parking spot, and no doubt the time will come when I need to leave for an important appointment and can't afford to wait and sort it out (imagine missing a flight because you can't get out of your garage?). I also hate the feeling of coming home from work, and finding I can't park in my own damn parking spot, even if the person is there for just 10 mins. Wow... I'm really turning into a grumpy German!
