Re: Death, what now?

I'm not tax resident, I believe the house is worth about 180,000 euros and was purchased 20 years ago. When I started this thread I called her my best friend. It was much deeper than that and I have every intention of following her will.

Re: Death, what now?

Sorry, Beach, know you meant well. Thanks Sid.

She wasn't resident in Spain, just a holiday home. She has died in the UK so they are not aware of it yet.
What do I need to take to the notary?

Death, what now?

Sadly my best friend died suddenly at the weekend. She has a house in Iznate. Her Spanish will names me as the "universal heir to her assets". Although I have visited Spain and her house many times in the past 20 years I have not had the need to get an NIE number or anything like that. Not...

Re: Washing machine spares Velez Malaga

Took door to Cumarjus yesterday morn, they said come back at six. Went back, part fitted. Perfect. I understand the comments about ordering online but a washing machine is used regularly and by doing it this way hopefully my other half will not find out how clumsy I was.

Cast on Android 9

Like many I use miracast in Spain connected to a Win 10 tablet. I've recently bought a Huawei Y6 smartphone running Android 9 and although there are lots of instructions/videos online telling me how to connect non of them appear to be applicable. I've also read Google have disabled the facility. Any...

Re: Financial Advisors...Again.

I've had the same company in the U.K. for financial advice for over 20 years and have done very nicely. I'm always happy to tell someone that I stop short of a recommendation in the same way I would not recommend my Dentist!

Malaga Airport Train Ticket Machine

I have a friend coming in August who will be taking the train from Malaga Airport to the Benalmadena area. Now I've only used the ticket machine twice, got totally confused and had to ask a fellow traveller for help both times.
Can anyone give me a simple guide through it?

Re: Looking to move to Benomacarra

Our house is just up the road at Iznate. I drive through or round Benamocarra when I go to Velez. The only times I stop are to go to the barbers. Nice bloke, 7 euros for a haircurt. To my knowledge there are no taxi companies in Benamocarra, getting there from Velez is no problem, going the other wa...

Re: Malaga car hire.

I picked up a car from Malagacar.com 17th. April. I go for the cheapest option as I have a seperate policy. Their fuel policy used to be collect half full (and pay for it), return empty. Now you return the car with the amount that was in on collection. I can see for and against. For - not paying the...

Re: No Internet

I eventually got through on the breakdown number and gave the guy my address. He said I needed to call the office. I eventually got through to the office where they told me I had not paid for this month. I replied that I paid a years subscription in January. I was back on within the hour. Thanks for...

Re: No Internet

In the UK I am with Talktalk. I'm sure the other ISPs are the same. My experience of getting problems fixed has been dreadful. It's often difficult to understand what they are saying so the idea of me trying to explain my problem in the little Spanish I speak is scary. That is why I wanted to make s...
