I found myself dishing out information on renting in Germany at two totally different points last week and I decided it was about time that I passed our wisdom on to the masses. As some of you know, Dan and I moved into our apartment in the middle of December last year, but we spent at least four months prior to this on the ‘moving process’ and even up until this week we have been sorting things out still.
