Re: Ants!!!!

Hi

I went for ZUM which seems to be highly rated all round. The powder options worry me because of the dog who may do a Boris 'sneeze it up' by mistake.

Anyway, let's see but I have high hopes.......

I just checked on the Post Office site and it specifically says that you need both your original licence as well as the International one https://www.postoffice.co.uk/international-driving-permit to drive with it- Given, according the The Olive Press the police are doing a blitz on driving starting ...

International Driving Licence

Anyone know if it OK to drive just with that as they have sent their normal UK EU one off for renewal. I said I thought so as it has all the details etc and photo but would like to double check. It was issued in the UK in March when we thought we were leaving the EU so valid for a year. Cheers folks!

Re: Ants!!!!

Hi Enrique!
How are you?


Pleased it is a general problem and not just me. Yes 15-20 is about right. No idea where the exit place is but there are a couple of possibilities. ZZ Polvo? Carrefour or similar maybe?

Thanks

Re: Legal report

Anecdotally all you ever hear is problems occurring with situations like this. Lawyers here, apparently, take very little responsibility and town halls can change like the wind if the politics/policies/mayor change. Would it be possible for you to get the sellers to legalise it as a condition of sal...

Re: used car: AUTO COZAR, "VIP - Cars", experiences?

I bought from Cozar, the excellent non-rip-off garage I've used for years in the Estepona poligano recommended them. They were fine, but that was a few years ago. Never heard bad things though.

There are a couple of second hand places in the poligano who also look OK.......

Re: Driving in sandals.

Does this help? My undestanding is that any shoe that is open at the front or back that could get caught on the pedals, and this 'law' has been around for quite a while. Anecdotally I have heard of police just sitting by a beach and picking people off one by one at going home time. https://www.racca...

Re: "you´ll need at least 40k in the bank before i can start showing you properties"

I was talking to a friend who works in a bank in Marbella and she said that they have altered the criteria for British people buying with a mortgage, upping the deposit amount etc., because of the uncertainty of Brexit and worries about the Pound Sterling

Re: Lone and ill

There is a place near Estepona that looks quite nice. It is state run.

Maybe it depends if you are in the system. So many people are not. Hopefully this man will find something like this.

Re: SPANISH EXAM DELE FOR NATIONALITY CHANGE

Oh blimey, I forgot. To be truly Spanish I have to move heavy furniture, not by lifting it, but by scraping it across the floor, especially in the early hours of the morning.

Also and have my dog on my lap and be texting or speaking on the phone whilst driving, naturally.
