Re: leaving flat

if somebody takes the flat and is happy to have your furniture, that is great. But normally the flat has to be left empty and absolutely clean. There is a section here on EF where you can offer your furniture for sale or for free. Otherwise YOU have to find somebody to take your furniture away to an official refuse facility, which will cost you money.

I have to say though - if after 6 years here you do not speak any German - why do you expect people who live here to speak YOUR language. Sorry.

Re: leaving flat

We will be buying all new furniture for our new house when it is built, we have people who want to rent our flat when we leave we will offer to leave nearly everything in including the light fittings, if they don`t want anything i will stick it all outside with a sign on saying GRATIS.

Re: leaving flat

Each area has its own rules- but it could be an expensive mistake. If you do this and everything goes within a few hours, you might get away with it. However, if some items are left- you will have to take them to an official refuse dump before the police turns up.

Here we used to have several dates a year when large items could be put in the street to be taken by refuse collectors. Anybody could help themselves in the meantime. But his was cancelled last year - partly because of 'gangs' fighting for said items! Why not offer everything for free here on EF- much safer option.

We have had no problems in the past putting things outside for free we don`t live on a main street. Ok i will offer everything free on EF, but whoever wants the stuff will have to pick it up in a big lorry
