Re: Owner not paying yearly community fee

Our community has been in exactly this situation and it became clear that irrespective of the HPL, it is virtually impossible to prevent an owner or their tenant from using the pool (or any other community facility) if they wish to use it, other than by committing some criminal offence ourselves. Pa...

Re: La Renta 2018 UK Rental Income - Tenant Identification

Just make up any old number and put it in the box. No way for Spain to check, and if they did find it were nonsense, just tell them that was the number given to you by your tenant.

Re: Strange email event

Thanks Enrique - we wondered if it was something like that. It is a Gmail account. However - why would Google allow someone to have the same email address? For instance, if we had mickeymouse@gmail.com - surely they wouldn't let someone else have mickey.mouse@gmail.com? That would mean that we would...

Strange email event

Yesterday evening we found 2 emails in our inbox from Trainline, one confirming a return rail ticket booking Winchester / Waterloo (going today and returning tomorrow) and giving the last four credit card digits of the payment; the other was the actual e-ticket. We had not made the booking and do no...

Re: BEING MADE RESPONSIBLE FOR PLANTER

Patricia, when you say "planters", do you mean a fixed part of the fabric of the building, or separate moveable containers like plant pots ?

If there is a site located near to you, the Amazon Lockers are a really convenient and safe way to collect your stuff. We have used them many times and not had any problems.

Malaga Airport Parking

Has anyone used the Aena Parking website to book and pre pay a few days in the covered parking adjacent to the airport building - not the Long Term/mini bus one ? If so, is there a reserved section so you are guaranteed a spot no matter how busy it may be ?


Thanks,

Re: Tile Cleaning

No ! I did that twice years ago, but never again. If you put a sealer on, it usually has to be removed at some later stage before you can apply a further coat of new seal, and removing the old layer was an absolute pain in the butt. Since then, I just put up with the Vim routine every now and then w...

Re: Tile Cleaning

Same "flooring" pattern as you Costa Kid. Did our kitchen yesterday, bathrooms to be done next week.

Thick kneeling pad, scrubbing brush, good old fashioned Vim powder and lots of elbow grease.

A very big Thank You to all of you! Thanks to the info about Smarty App - I can again download from BBC radio.

iPlayer radio downloads

I use "smarty dns" but can no longer ( from about 3 or 4 weeks ago ) download radio programmes to my Samsung tablet. "Smarty dns" works fine with the TV apps. I've been in contact with "Smarty dns" but they can't solve the problem. Does anyone have any ideas ? I have th...

Re: Residence Registration No Healthcare

PP :- After seeing Free at Last's post, I've checked our own policy carefully and asked friends who I knew to have PH cover here in Spain, with different insurers. None of them have the restrictions you describe as the norm on their policies.

Re: Residence Registration No Healthcare

Hi PP - was surprised to see your comment about maximum payouts on PHI.

Ours has limit of 10.000 euro per person for treatment outside of Spanish territory, but no limits within Spain - is that unusual ?

Sliding patio Doors

Can anyone tell me please what the correct Spanish word is (or words are !), for the roller insert mechanisms which are attached under the bottom of a sliding patio door panel ?
