Hi, I just wanted to write to give a word of warning about a building company. We purchased our apartment from a company called TransImmo. It was to be a new build so we bought into a plan 1.5 years ago. The original completion date was July 2013. Then September 2013. Then delayed to November, then December. Now, end of February 2014 the apartment is still not finished!  The purchase process was pleasant but the construction management has been horrible.  They are very late with the construction. We finally had to sign the receipt of the keys over a month ago as otherwise we would have been without a roof over our head. But still there are many works not completed and they do not seem to care at all. They promise to come and finish, make an appointment and noone shows up. The quality of the construction is such that it was almost impossible to put in a build in closet as the walls were not straight. The floors were not finished. They 'forgot' TV and internet sockets. We had a ventilator over the stove and the construction company did not complete the pipe for the air extraction. They just built a pipe that lead nowhere. There were a lot of promises made that could be done and orders done but once it came time to construct the answer was that they do not know how to do it. One of the workers who worked on our floor actually said that his boss said that it is not important if the floor is not flat... The management company is called CoConsult. The other company that i do not recommend are Decker-Ries. We ordered our sanitary products from them and after receiving the apartment they realised they had forgotten most of our order.

Hi all, like many of you, I am shocked over the housing market here. I am moving from Germany, where it is still a fair market and most landlords attempt to make the flat livable and appealing  for the next tenant. My impression is that in Luxembourg that is not the case? I found a great place I like, but it has carpet, which I would prefer not to have. The landlord didn't note that he would replace or even clean the carpet before the new tenant moves in. The previous people were there for over five years and the carpet is light grey and dirty!  He would only consider to replace part of the carpet, with something like laminate, if the new tenant covers the cost!!  This is horrifying and depressing. Do the landlords really have that much power? They seem to do what they want, and still charge an arm and a leg. I am not a banker, don't work for the EU and am on local contract, so my budget is limited. Is there any recourse in this case, or should I just move on and find another place where I don't have to sink costs into it  to make it livable? Thanks for any tips or heads- up!

Hi, Would appreciate any recommendations for a reasonably priced and professional building company to undertake a house extension and some renovation work here in Luxembourg? I hear that Luxembourgish builders are extortionately expensive even for the simplest things. So, any Belgian or German companies are equally welcome. All suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

Dear all, are there any other sources to find a flat or a house to rent besides athome.lu? Like newspapers or websites where we can find ads from direct landlords, not  agencies. Can't say I am happy to pay to  agencies for a search they are not involved but only present on premises just to show them. Thanks a lot Andy

Can someone give me an idea of the the cost of the compulsory insurance when renting a flat in Luxembourg. I think this is referred to as building and fire insurance. I've no idea how much this might cost for  2-3 bedroom flat of around 100m2 with a rent of around 1700Eur/month. Thanks for any info.

Could someone explain the actual use of the yellow sticker 'keng reklame weg'. It looks like most mailboxes have got one, so have I, and it doesn't seem to influence in any way the volume of junk mail I receive. It looks like the kind of fashion accessory that everybody must have...

Hello all! Arriving to Lux end of February and was wondering if I can rent an apartment for a month. Need at least 1 bedroom flat (we are 3 adults+1 y.o.baby). Tried to find smth, but there are some choices or too far from a city centre or the price is too high (more than 5000 Euros). Could you recommend anything or maybe you have friends who have flats available for our dates?   Thanks in advance, Andy

Hi everyone, I am being faced with having to clean childrens' fingerprints off the classic textured Luxembourgish wall, in white! It was easy to do at home, having oil paint on our walls, but what to do here!? Can anyone help? The fingerprints are not really highly visible, but just enough to be noticeable.

We are looking for a 5 or 6 bedroom apartment in the Limpertsberg or Belair neighborhoods. We are currently three guys and one girl looking for one girl, two girls, or one girl and one guy. Our projected budget is between 700-800€/month all inclusive. We are all young professionals aged 24-27 of different nationalities, and would like to find someone who is similar and plans to be in Luxembourg for at least one year, beginning in January. We are all moving to the city around the beginning of January, so this is a new flatshare, not an established one.
