Re: UK mobile phone stopped working

I may be missing something here, but if you are using a phone in Spain for the majority of the time, why not get a Spanish phone and number ??

Re: Water tanks, yes or no?

I should hang on to your tank, the mains supply in Competa can be a bit hit and miss, particularly in summer. At least with a tank you have a couple of days back up if the supply is cut.

Re: Autonomo and pensions

Are you saying that you only paid Autonomo for one year, and then qualified for a Spanish pension ? Do you receive the full pension or just a percentage ?

Autonomo and pensions

Does anyone know what is the minimum number of years you have to pay Autonomo in order to claim all or a part of a Spanish pension ?

Re: malaga airport bus

Alameda Principal ( Sur) is, as Costakid quiet rightly pointed out, at the bottom of Calle Larios.

Free at Last - Plaza de Consitucion is at the top end of C/ Larios.

Re: Fire pit permission?

If you live in the Competa area, particularly on Cruz del Monte or within the park area, there are restrictions on the use of open fires / BBQ's during certain months. I believe they are banned between June 1st and October 31st. It is best to check with the Ayuntamiento, as fines can be as much as 3...

Re: Community pigeon problem

Assuming that your community is legal, it will come under the "Ley 49/ 1960 Ley sobre Propiedad Horizontal" If he has not paid community fees, then I would suggest that your administrator opens court proceedings to obtain payment. If he fails to pay ,the court can order that the property i...

Re: Cataract operation

Sid is correct, the cost of a cataract op at Hidalgo is around 1250 euros. I visited their clinic in Velez Malaga, but the operation was carried out in Torremolinos.
Very professional and no problems.

Re: Golf course suited to novices

The Parador near the airport has a fairly flat, easy course, but watch out for other players balls as the fairways are close together in some parts.
The other course, a bit more intersting but still fairly level, is Guadalahorche, the one you fly over sometimes when flying into Malaga.

Re: Selling a house - Tax implications.

Slightly off topic, but this week the Junta de Andalucia has changed the law regarding Inheritance Tax.
As of 1st January 2018 spouses and children will not have to pay IH on any estate that is valued less than 1 Million Euros, this apparently accounts for 95% of estates in Andalucia.
