The Windows 10 1903 update was apparently downloaded in the background, and then when we were prompted we scheduled the update to take place on our preferred day a...

Re: Wood burning stove specialist

We've used 'Rudi & Rofer' in the past when we were down by the coast. They used to have a showroom in Torre del Mar, which was closed last time we were down there, but their workshop just on the outskirts of Torre on the coast road going west, was still open. They were very helpful, and manufact...

Re: Paying Renta Tax Bill in Cash at the bank

We think that his logic is that the Hacienda will pick-up on the unpaid tax when the property is sold, and clam it from the proceeds, plus of course the late payment charges?

Re: Paying Renta Tax Bill in Cash at the bank

We have always (twenty years?) paid our Renta Tax in our local rural village Santander (where we have our account), usually by tarjeta but occasionally by cash..... The clerk usually suggests that we have no need to pay until we sell the property, but accepts our excuse that "We are English&quo...

Re: Having a car to use in UK

Agree with your cost analysis, Peter. The same reasoning that I purchased a car for whilst in Spain Similarly, I agree, but we also investigated Car Clubs in the UK, but there were no reasonably priced and reliable ones where we wanted to live in the UK. There might just be one in your area....... ...

Re: Leroy Merlin - Little Faith

On one of our jaunts to the coast we bought a power washer from the Leroy Merlin store near Plaza Mayor in Malaga, but after several weeks of satisfactory use, it developed what seemed to be an electrical fault, and...

Hi ashtondav Regret that I don't know, but there will likely be something on the DGT website..... A similar problem must arise in London with their low emissions regime?

Re: Entering Madrid by car

Hi Mark We got our 'eco' sticker from our local post office in rural Andalucia last week. You need to take your vehicle documents and the owner's NIE to the post office, and they access a DGT database with the reg number and advise you of which sticker (of the four different types) you need. Cost us...

Fibre Glass Lined Pool

Hi All I wondered if any of you experts out there might be able to advise us? Last year we had our leaking pool refurbished (re-concreted, and covered with two laters of 'painted' fibre glass, and all pipework renewed (previously the pool was ceramically tiled) which seems to have worked, since ther...

We looked at this company when we had exactly the same problems as you, and based on the size of our pool and location of our house (La Puebla de Cazalla A92 km63) from their base, they quoted us €6,900. Perhaps they would have done a great job...... However, our trusted local 'pool and well' contra...

Re: Water tanks, yes or no?

Yep, I have a big deposito linked to the mains. The garden watering is taken from the deposito which is then filled up from the mains, so freshened every day. Installed a pump next to it so now when the water goes off, as it does for 4 or 5 days in summer we have power showers every day. Paradise. ...
