What to do? @roland is right: contact the local Mieterverein. The Mietervereine are consumers' rights organizations that give legal advise on rental matters to renters. This is usually the cheapest option to get a lawyer who is specialized at rental law. The Mieterverein, btw., may find that the final accounting is wrong - the rules are rather complex (they ...

Now the Person B who didn't do anything is asking for payment [...] What legal services can Person B bill for in this case? Fictitious "benefits" which the client did not even request do not entitle the lawyer to compensation therefor.

The goal of the GDPR is to ensure a single market for personal data processing throughout the EU. Since all EU/EEA member states now have equivalent levels of data protection, it doesn't matter in which member state data is stored or processed.

Germany does not require an exit visa to leave the country. She is free to return to Ukraine without the new visa, but she will of course need it to re-enter Germany in the future. It is best to present evidence that she hasn't overstayed her previous visa to avoid any issues, as this will be checked when leaving the country.

Rental contracts with more than one tenant are usually written in a way that the tenants are "Gesamtschuldner" (joint debtors). That means the landlord can request any contractual obligations from any one of the tenants at their discretion.

In Germany, the assets and liabilities of the deceased (including, I think, contractual rights and obligations) pass immediately to the heirs - there is no probate or deceased estate as there is in common law jurisdictions. In your circumstances, the rights and obligations of B pass immediately to C. Therefore, A & C are required to do whatever it is ...

The world is in the grip of a pandemic and there is no positive obligation on the Member State to list out authorised border crossing points if there aren't any. The Member State could choose to close the ...

What's the legality of this situation? It's unlawful and you should seek support for it. That document you linked to appears to have resources that could help you, such as support lines and counselling centres, etc. Am I being discriminated against by these landlords(companies)? I would say so. It sounds like you're being discriminated against on grounds ...

Now let's imagine you buy the product, but you notice very soon that it is not possible to buy the accessory anywhere (for the sake of argument there is also no third party manufacturer that provides a matching accessory). It might be the case that this accessory was never manufactured at all or it is out-of-stock and will never be manufactured again. The ...
