Re: Kitchen/Air Con instillation

Hi - welcome to the western end of Andalucia! Hope you enjoy that lovely little town and the Cadiz coastal area - nice place.
Sorry, cant help with local recommendations though, but perhaps someone from Cadiz, Chiclana, etc will be along soon to help ....

Re: advise

I believe you may be able to check on the catastral web site - your friend should have her own catastral reference in her house papers - and that may show the owners on either side (I know when we did this a while back, we were surprised to see the details of the neighbouring properties also!). Or s...

Re: First occupation licence

So we went ahead with the application for the LdeO - took about 6 months, but then we were not in a hurry to pay the Tasa required for the issuing of the Licence from the TownHall Architects office. Prices may vary wildly - our architect thought it was based on the cadastral value of the property, a...

Re: Considering move to Andalucia

Costa - totally agree with your posting - but we find that one of the charms of the atlantic coast in the low season - calm and tranquillity on the atlantic beaches, and you can still find a good restaurant or two open even in the smallest coastal places. But for us the real charm is in the inland a...

Re: Considering move to Andalucia

Another welcome to the forum - have you considered Huelva province - the touristy places on the coast are still very spanish orientated, but still very pleasant and not over commercialised, while inland you have nice hills, without craggy mountains, and a mostly good climate - Seville gets too hot i...

Re: "tu" or "su"

Now if you have experience in France, you would want to use a polite vous, or in spanish su, but in Spain it does not quite work like that. All and sundry tend to use tu when speaking in the singular, though you may have noticed that with verbs you dont even need to use the pronoun except for emphas...

Re: Places around Cordoba

You might be able to find a coach tour you could join while you are there - day-trips out into the mountains south of Cordoba, eg Priego de Cordoba and the little town of Carcabuey nearby. The hills round there are covered with miles and miles of olive plantations, with sharp pointy mountains, and v...

Re: Moving a caravan to a park in Andalucia

Something to consider - there are some very much custom-built sites which cater especially for "Park-homes" - static caravans with plumbing, garden plots, tarmac roads and club-house - these have very expensive rates and usually expect you to buy on-site, off-plan. There are not many in An...

Re: formula

As to a weekend fiesta, timed to co-incide, or nearly, with an official holiday, say mid-week - it is very much up to local town hall and fiesta committees as to how they plan their time. Often there is nothing special - eg May 1st is a good example, round here at least. Those who can take a few day...

Re: Drive repair in the campo

You are within your rights to go and give them a prod about the licence ... if only to ask when it is likely to be approved, and perhaps you can be getting on with the work? Worked a treat for us ... and you get to know the staff in the catastal office too!

Re: buying

Jimmy - irrespective of the price they have put on it now, it is only worth something if they sell it. If you are keen on the place, make them an offer at the price YOU want to pay, then see what they come back with. If they have not had any other offers or interest, they may well snap up yours.
