Re: Energy Efficient Heater

We use the electric type that heat the oil up inside them. They are brilliant and kick out lots of heat. Not very expensive to run in my opinion. Never had any horror electric bills. All big electrical stores sell them but go for a descent make like Bosch or similar.

Re: Driving with dogs

If you do the long drive and cross at Irun then I would use the channel tunnel. 40 minutes and all the time before you can stop, exercise and be with your pet. The long ferry can be distressing if the crossing is rough.There are lots of pet friendly hotels but the trip is doable with a 1 night stop ...

Re: purchase fees

We paid the balance of the sellers mortgage direct to their bank (my idea) so i knew it was paid off. We paid the rest to the notary so 2 bankers official cheques. You shouldn't be paying there lawyers fees or their plus valia. Are you using an independent solicitor?

Re: Is there Uber in Spain? How effective are public transportations?

Uber is taking off in Spain especially here in Malaga. The AVE is quite cheap if you book a month in advance. I think Madrid to Seville is around 90 minutes. Madrid to Malaga is only 2.5 hours. 300KPH and a pleasure to be on.

Re: purchase fees

Couldn't you pay the smaller fees on a debit card. One cheque for the house and the rest on card.

Re: cycling in and around Nerja

Its quite hilly around Nerja. If you want flat head south towards Malaga along the old coast road. Heading east you have some nice villages and towns like La Herradura and Almunecar. A bit of a task if your not super fit. Another nice ride would be up in to Frigiliana then onto Acebuchal (The lost V...

Re: Tourism

I am sure Spain will welcome the millions of £s that the brits bring to there economy every year. They would be snookered with out the brits.

Football fan are probably not so welcome after the trouble before the England Spain game in Seville.

Re: Engine Warning Light - Automatic !TV fail???

you could try disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes not 10. This sometimes deletes faults although they may come back. Dont bother buying a cheap diagnostic kit, waste of money in my opinion. Not sure on the zafira set up but you could try the old car dealer trick and remove that bulb for the ITV.
