Re: Car Hire Yellow Spanner

Far too often a car is serviced but the service interval software not updated. At least this is better than them just resetting the interval but doing no service! If there is no owners' service book in the car (never is) you could ask them when it was last done, and what service?

Re: Digital Certificates

Cannot help thinking what an inefficient shables it all seems. OH’s shows up as being paid, mine not yet, but surely it should be possible to have the system tell that payment has been made, saving the costs of printing a six-page letter and sending it recorded delivery? It is a bit like when I work...

Re: Digital Certificates

Latest hiccup.....having downloaded and completed notices of fines for both me and SWMBO, then downloading and printing off 002s for both, taking them to the bank, paying and keeping stamped copies, I have had the letters with 002s sent by mail! The money has gone from my bank for each, marked as Ha...

Re: The Original Blues Brothers Band in Torremolinos

One of the biggest plus-points to A.com's forum is that bar the odd inserted ad (as I type there is a small stationary Hertz ad above this box) which I assume is paid for I have been given the choice as to whether I want to look at any of the website's content or not. As it happens, my default is &q...

Re: Solar panels and feedback to the grid, or not?

You have a low consumption of power at the moment, and assuming you will not be disconnecting totally from Endesa would still have to pay all the fixed costs, which in many cases are more than the kwh consumed. Not worth the hassle I think?

I think things worked better when communication was done by a runner with a cleft stick! Without doing anything different I tried logging in again and wonder of wonders got straight in, made my way through the fronds and byways of the AEAT website and finally reached a page where I was able to see a...

Having gone through the process of getting new ones, and using them to access AEAT in the past month, I do not understand where the new ones are! Shoukd I ...

all this technology seems very fragile: within the last fortnight having (with much help from Beachcomber) succesfully used my digital certificate to agree my fine for late return of my Renta. tonight when I try to enter the agencia tributaria site I keep getting the message that there is no valid c...

Re: Solar heat swimming pool

Be aware that the black water piping can become brittle if exposed to the sun. We buried ours (inside corrugated flexible red tubing to ease removal/repair if necessary) after an exposed section started suddenly springing tiny leaks. Of course you can fix each leak spot by cutting a short section ou...

Re: process and cost of updating an escritura

When we were regularising our house we used an abogada who specialised in property stuff, who arranged for technical architects to visit, measure, photograph then send all off to the college of architects, who sent a certificate of antiquity. This was used by the notary in Velez, who drew up a new e...

Re: process and cost of updating an escritura

There are two problems to not having up to date paperwork: one is that you could well be paying too little IBI and if/when they do a catchup you can get a backdated bill going back four years, and if you decide to sell your house and be fortunate enough to find a buyer you could find they walk away ...

After a few wrong alleys that I explored along the way I have found the form, filled and signed it, sent it and checked it is there!! The return form with the barcodes for the bank is not there yet, but I assume there is a delay before this is issued? I only hope that in a year’s time I can recall a...

Re: URGENT! Which tax form for late payment fine?

Beachcomber - just been to the bank and paid the fine for Janet, and “beep beep!” the Correos scooter has brought the fine for me.....not too painful as 15% of tax bill, less 25% for prompt payment. If it is not too tricky to explain and if others might find it useful, could you explain how to fill ...
