I think that you are right in saying that it's unlikely to be some sort of malicious attack from your real estate/lawyer. It's pretty easy to be pessimistic about things of this nature, but it's also possible that your agent is just good at their job.

Lawyers are certainly non-transparent about a lot of the ways they price work, so you're right to lump them in with the dentists/doctors. Where they differ is they'll usually give you some sort of estimate, including an hourly rate, and then balloon the fee out from there. What you're dealing with seems like a relatively straight forward process and whilst one hour might seem high for this kind of thing, it's not absurd in comparison to things I've seen in the past.

Not to distract from towel's legal travails, but...

Fuck the BAA. We're going to cut the field size, and dick around with the requirements, to ensure quals are as fucked as completely possible, instead of taking the eminently fucking sensible step of requiring proof of vaccination for a race in fucking October that could still go with a normal field size. Dicks. And on the same day Oktoberfest cancels, so I can't even do that after Berlin, instead. Dicks, all around.

Idk what BAA is but I'd much rather go to Berlin 10 times than Munich/Oktoberfest. Berlin is a top tier city.

Boston Athletic Association - they run the Boston Marathon. And they're a bunch of pricks. I'm running Berlin, so I'll be there already. Will have to figure out what to do after, now. My buddy's in Madrid most of the time, so maybe that?

Wholeheartedly agree with this. Great food/drink (just avoid the tourist trap paella places), great surroundings, and plenty to do.

A Spain trip is at the top of my list once travel is back to normal. Probably will do a Spain/France combo since I've never been to either and the wifey wants to go back to Paris bad.

Posted the quick comment as I was falling asleep, but I actually enjoy Munich outside Oktoberfest as well (but can understand not going till you can actually Oktoberfest). Frankfurt is definitely a skip. I did really like Prague which won't be a bad train ride from Berlin (Id assume there is one, I took it from Munich).

Warsaw should be an absurdly cheap flight on LOT and was a ton of fun (though I did very little tourism type stuff).

Paris sucks balls, great to walk around but Parisians are dicks, and my French (at that time) was actually decent.

Yeah I have no real inclination to spend time there other than to check it off the list. I'd rather spend like a day there and find somewhere else to check out so we'll see.

And there is definitely direct trains between Prague-Berlin.

Prague is fun as hell but gets boring after 2 days. Everything is so insanely cheap, lots of different food options, and very walkable.

Yeah, Munich's moderately tempting regardless. It's funny that I've never met anyone, including Germans, who thought Frankfurt was any fun at all.

Warsaw would normally be tempting, but I'd want to go tour some family history, and that feels like a bit of a downer right now.

The realtor probably has come across some scumbag landlords over the years who rip of tenants, so they teamed up with a lawyer to get themselves a slice of that pie. They probably know this landlord is a snake and are reaching out to people who have lived in those buildings in search of plaintiffs/free money. I'd follow up purely out of curiousity.

Frankfurt is really just super industrial.

If you want to join a cult, go to Walldorf, the whole town is owned.
