Re: Problem with my pool leaking

Then emptying it will not create any more problems for you. If the leak is somewhere in the finished surface of the pool, you will have to empty it anyway to find the leak. You may find that if the pool is left empty the tiles will start dropping off. Far better not to trickle water in, but to allo...

Re: Roofing Costs

There is an old roof present, but it has collapsed in a few places, so I am currently stripping it off completely.
The building is 3.5mtrs X 28mtrs and will need all new materials.

Roofing Costs

Can anyone give me a rough idea of the cost of a new roof.
It is approx 100 sq mtrs, traditonal Andalucian roofing tile, single aspect.
It would be from scratch on existing walls.

Re: Buying an old house without basic services

Bit difficult to say as you dont give the size of the house. However, a septic tank would cost around 5k - 6k. Just to supply and connect an electric meter will be around 1k, this excludes the necessary wiring from the nearest supply box to the house. I would suggest you get a local builder to take ...

Re: Renewing green A4 residence certificate.

I did it last November, and it is as Free at Last says, except that we only needed an up to date Padron to change the address.

Re: Official documentation of reaching pension age

U should be dealing with INSS, not DWP. You're resident in Spain and presumeably if you followed correct procedure u claimed your UK pension via INSS. I have been resident in Spain for the last 24 years and last April reached the pension age of 65. I had paid 30 years contributions in the UK and 15...

Re: Official documentation of reaching pension age

That's correct, provided you have not worked in and or are claiming a Spanish pension Slight change on this. Unlike a UK pension, you cannot apply for your Spanish pension before you reach pensionable age. I applied for my UK pension 4 months before my birthday, which was duly awarded, and then on ...

Re: fee-free bank account

Cajamar have an account called Wefferent, whatever that means, and this account is free providing that you do all your banking either online or at ATMs'. If you go into the bank and ask them to carry out a transaction, there is a charge of 5 Euros.

Re: Tax Advice - Someone must know

Just a slight sidetrack on this subject, if you are living in Spain but earning your salary in the UK, paying your UK and Spanish tax under the double taxation system, are you able to join the Autonomo in Spain for things like health cover and Spanish pension contributions ?

Bats

Re: Water tank (again)

I would think very carefully about connecting 100% to Competa mains water supply. Having lived in that area for over 20 years, I can guarantee that you will be without mains water during certain times of the year. In some cases, for a few days. This is because the town water also supplies many campo...

Hi Gerry, thanks for the response. I currently have accounts with La Caixa and Cajamar, La Caixa for 6 years and Cajamar for nearly 20 years.

Apologies if this has been covered before, but I would like some advice on changing Spanish bank accounts. I understand that in the UK it is a fairly simple process, with all regular transactions and DD's changed automaticaly. Is it the same here in Spain, or do you need to change all these things y...

As long as the total amount of the cheques correspond with the agreed purchase price there is no problem.
