remember the whole bit about german apartments not having a kitchen built in already? not the room itself, but the cabinets, countertops, appliances, none of that is the responsibility of the landlord. you either put one in yourself or buy the old kitchen off of the previous tenant. that is if they aren't taking it with them to their new place.


anyway, the kitchen we bought off of the previous tenant here has a secret.

since god only knows when, water has been leaking back behind the sink and cabinets. the cabinet under the sink is rotten and there is water damage/mold/mildew on/in the wall and tile.

the previous tenant is responsible for the water damage to the wall and so on, but because we own the stuff in the kitchen now (and not the landlord), we have to take care of the cabinet and whatever else may be damaged among the hardware and so on.

drama. caveat emptor...

otherwise we are very happy with the new place! come by and see us sometime!

oh, i don't have any tattoos.
