Re: Finding a gestor

I agree with Beachcomber, you really do need to be careful with gestors and abogados - if you find a good one, cultivate him/her and stay with them. If you find you have a bad experience, move on quickly to another. Do try to find personal recommendations. Sorry, we are well west in Huelva so can't ...

Re: Goats

Make sure you have suitable fencing as they are expert escape artists, will climb trees and eat all your vegetation - you have been warned! But they are cute!

Re: Has anyone ever modified their residencia details (including nationality)?

Gerry - I think Alpine already has the Irish citizenship, as dual British/Irish now. He wants to change his residencia in Spain to show him as Irish, not British, so that when Brexit happens he will still be an EU citizen, which us Brits will no longer be ... So the same person, with the same reside...

Re: senora

As an aside, for formal addressing, eg official documents, tax returns, simple addressing on envelopes, Don is for Mr, and Doña is for Mrs. Not sure how young girls are addressed on paperwork ... The French have a similar attitude to ladies, as they become of marriageable age, they generally to refe...

Re: senora

If you don't know the lady well enough to know if she is married or not, then for a 50+ year old, err on the polite side by using señora. If you know for a fact that she has never married, and she asks you to call her señorita, go ahead. General rule of thumb is for anyone of marriageable age, to us...

Re: speeding up Town halls in Spain

You could go to your catastral office in the town hall and ask politely where they are up to ... they may refer you to the Architect attached to the town hall who processes these things or they may have an on-going file they can refer to. You should have a copy of the sumission from your lawyer, or ...

OliveV - that is indeed very sad news and only reminds us of the work that the bomberos and INFOCA do for us all --- it seems that the weather has got to that side of Sevilla and not made it to us in too much quantity then.

Re: halloween

It is a bit commercial, mainly for the kids to revell a bit in silliness, and to have an arty crafty thing to do in school for the juniors. You may see a lot of pumpkins about, and more activities in the larger towns than in the villages. Do a google search for the towns local to where you are visit...
