Re: Spanish Wills

I don’t think Brexit is relevant. The new law is an EU law and applies to residents of the EU. The UK rejected it anyway, but if you live in Spain, then, as far as I can see, it applies to you, irrespective of Brexit which does not change the fact that you are a Spanish resident.

Re: Spanish Wills

Yes, you need to change the wording which means a new will. The cheapest way is to take a copy of your existing will to the the notary and they will rewrite it with the correct phrase.

Loads of info about the law if you google Brussels IV.

Re: Water deposit

Mains water is chlorinated and safe to drink. If you want to ensure that the standard of water in the depósito is maintained, using pool Chlorine would be fine. At worst it may taste over chlorinated but it won’t kill you. A pool testing kit would help to keep it at the right levels. You need to kee...

Re: Snake on Bougainvillea

A Viper in Spain is very rare and you are unlikely to find one. The markings on the Whipsnake are similar to the Viper but it is so thin to make it obviously a Whipsnake not a Viper (less obvious if you have never seen either). I would think is about 1000:1 that it is a Viper just based on how many ...

Re: Where to Buy?

They are very easy to grow if you can find some seeds. They hate hot weather so you can plant into the soil in October and thereafter for peas all the way through to end of May. As soon as it reaches above 20c they will die off. If you haven’t got the space in your garden, plant them in a bag of sus...

Re: Snake on Bougainvillea

We have seen quite a few of these. Pretty little things and they move incredibly fast. When hiding they curl up into a very tight coil. Completely harmless.

Re: NIE Application or Renewal - process in July 2019

If you have the new “residence “ document, the old NIE is redundant. It’s all going to change for the better after Brexit when we will have photo cards again!

Re: NIE Application or Renewal - process in July 2019

and of course if you have moved you must get it updated to show your current address. Many “stand alone” NIEs were issued without the holders correct address and there is no reason to renew it if you move. The original NIE would have been linked to your passport number, which is probably now not th...

Re: Summer grass watering

When I had a lawn it was watered every day and it worked out at about 20 litres per M2. That was an "English" type of lawn. If yours is typically coarse Spanish grass it will probably be less. I could afford to be generous as our water is very cheap as it is from an agricultural supply. Sid

Re: Shingles Vaccination

No, but reoccurrence is quite rare. Shingles in the facial nerve is really nasty. You can lose the sight in that eye and also get Bells Palsy which causes one side of your face to droop and you can end up unable to close your eye. It happened to a close friend recently and he has never really recove...

Shingles Vaccination

If you don't live in the UK you are probably unaware that there is a vaccination against Shingles. Last year I enquired about a Pneumonia jab and a Shingles jab. The Pneumonia jab is available, either by buying it at the pharmacy, or if you are lucky, for free at the local health centre. I enquired ...

Re: Wireless internet provider in Granada city?

That used to be the case, but Movistar now use a new router which has the cable connected directly. I know that for sure as I watched mine being installed and it took nearly two days to get the fibre cable into the house as it runs for about 70m underground through my garden. It would have been much...
