Re: buying

The market definitely seems to be firming up around here, based on selling times but not so sure about valuations. As an example one estate agent valued a friends 2 bed apartment at 160k. Another, more local agent, said to put it on at 145k. Look around, ask and make plenty of visits to similar prop...

Re: Ryanair Flights & Entering Passport Information

Yes, with Ryanair you enter api when you check in on line. You can do this whether you have hold bags or not.

I have read that Ryanair are reducing the days before flight that you can check in - unless of course you buy priority boarding.

Re: Taxation of ETFs and Investment funds in Spain

I agree. I would class them as shares - as they are in the uk. I’d still ask first. Blevins Franks?

Re: Solar heat swimming pool

I am basically copying a neighbour who is achieving a 3C to 6C increase in pool heat with 150m of 13m tube. Not interested in connecting to the electric pump as I want solar. He does not have a solar pool cover like we do so it will be an interesting experiment.

Re: Tent on rustic land

On a related matter are there regs on having a garden shed?

And where I live the default advice from a petrified town hall is “no”, so am interested in posters’ experience.

Re: Solar heat swimming pool

Quick update. I have had problems sourcing a sufficiently powerful solar pump but this one will operate up to 1350l/h so with nine hours sun I will recirculate about 20% of the pool which should lift the temperature 2C to 3C, hopefully. I will use about 50m of 13mm black irrigation hose coiled on bl...

Re: Comments and queries re FAQ for Non-resident income tax

You submit form 210 with rental income and expenses each quarter. You pay tax on the net income each quarter, when you submit it. If the property is in two names you submit a 210 form for each person.

Solar heat swimming pool

Hi

I have had a look at utube and am inclined to build a simple solar heater for the pool. Probably a submersible solar water pump and 200 metres of black irrigation tubing. Does anyone have any tips, experience or best in class tutorial. Please bear in mind I am a technical numpty!

Re: Gift tax threshold /children

In Andalucia you can gift up to e120,000 (I think) if it is to buy a first house. Otherwise there is no gift allowance, although the starting rate on small amounts is less than 8%. I hasten to add this from memory when looking into it a few years ago, but I am sure there is someone who has more info...

Data protection

I know data protection regs are becoming ever more complex but is there any simpletons guide for what may or may not be applicable to a small club. We do not distribute email addresses for example but what else should we be aware of?

Land co-ordinates

I have a boundary map of a parcel of land. The boundary is marked on the map by a series of coordinates that I am unfamiliar with. It seems similar to a lat and long system as there is a north/south axis and an east/west axis. The coordinates are labelled ORDENADA and ABSCISA. The former labelled wi...

If that is really in the “small print” then it’s disgraceful as that is a major constraint for many tourists.

Yes hellofan works but not always. I wanted a car for two months and the code didn’t work. I would have had to hire in smaller “chunks” of time.
