Re: Advice on winter rental please

I thought Torrox was German ex pats and the Brits use Nerja or Frigiliana?

Re: Advice on winter rental please

I think it’s based on months not annual calendar. So in your example you would be over the limit because in a five month period (October to March) you spent more than 90 days in the country.

Re: Credit card fees for car hire

I thought it was not legal to charge a fee for using a credit card. A car hire company seems to do this as a matter of course and it is in their T&C's but that does not make it right. They don't charge a fee for using a debit card. What is the legal situation here? The fee is 3,30 euros + VAT b...

Lidl open today

I thought supermarkets were only able to open on sundays July and August and a few in December.

Lidl Nerja is open today, the second Sunday in September. Is this usual?

Re: Persianas Supplier

Was this repair and replace? I am looking at retrofitting persianas and want to know if this is possible without massive chiselling out of internal plaster. Can’t sleep as soon as the sun hits the window!

Re: Dog mess rules - Ronda area

Dogs shouldn't be allowed to urinate on pavements unless owners swill the stuff down. Why the hell dogs are allowed to urinate on pavements and humans aren't is mystifying - same rancid smell IMHO, and health risk. Hose the stuff down. Here in Frigi it's eyes down, eyes up when walking because 50% o...

Re: Bringing a UK car to Andalucia

We brought our car over when we moved here and transferred it to Spanish plates. Used a Gestor to handle the process and it was an absolute breeze. You also need to consider the cost of second hand cars here in Spain which typically is getting on for double the price of an equivalent UK car, and mo...

Re: Paying a lawyer upfront

Assuming "The" was meant to be "Then", I thought that was only if you were spanish tax resident. A UK tax resident would be liable to IHT - at least I think so. And you have to pay before you can sell the house.

We are a small expat society about to hold an AGM. I would like to know if there is an "official" format for an AGM and also a format for minutes. They will be in English and then translated into Spanish. I have been told it is important to get it right as without well documented AGM and b...

Thanks again Mark and 1bassleft, great info. once more. I now understand what you mean Mark after looking at exactly where the port is and the lay out of the town. Problem is though once more is that a lot of the hotels we liked the look of are booked solid for the nights we need, we've earmarked a...

Re: Best currency transfer companies for buying property

Currencyfair. Pay the money direct to the vender or supplier’s spanish account, not via your Spanish account.

Rates far better than bank.
