Re: Long term rental laws

I would say that €1000.00 is a lot to pay for any rental property unless it's huge and fully furnished !! unfortunatly that seems to be the "normal" price in malaga west. especially within 30 minutes of the coast. check : the cheapest 3 bed in : idealista Málaga provincia 6.749 Costa del ...

Emma-Louise - what sort of house are you looking for, and what does it need to have? do you want to be in a town or in the campo?

Re: Thick ceiling paint

go to a paint shop or the regular bricomart etc - look at spending around € 30.00 for a 15L tub - any less and it´ll be like painting with milk. You´ll need 5 coats and it will drip everywhere.

Re: Postal deliveries in Spain

could you not put your address as "Al, room xx, xxx hotel in torrox, malaga" ? I mean... the hotel must get post so why not? ask the front desk if its allowed?

I´ve got a post box at a local news agents, that might be an option too?

Re: Local bank closing ... how do I?!

in Alhaurin in the BBVA they have a second machine thats not a cash point, its especially for paying bills.. and you can pay in coins too - only the odd change but its a good idea. It takes a while to go through (i think 3 or 4 days) so you cant leave it till the last day to pay (who does that :haha...

Re: Washing machine spares Velez Malaga

while e-spares is a good resource, i find that sometimes the part+shipping can be more expensive than the part locally.
