Re: Debt collection agencies

I had this with internet companies claiming I owed them money. I was receiving weekly letters from them all threatening worse things and increasing the debt - at least 3 different companies I recall. I got a friendly local solicitor to write to them to tell them I would not pay, but would happily co...

Re: Signing off sick when autonomo

Thank you for all your help - for info for others it is a P9 form you need from your Doctor. You need to get it every fortnight and you send it on to your Mutua and they pay you - payments are erratic, different amounts every time, but they are still payments so more than I expected which was nothin...

Re: Green "residencia" versus permanent "residencia"

Thank you again - I understand what you are saying WH but they are seeking to reduce their enormous health costs and thus could make it difficult for people to have access to the health service, whereas in fact permanent residents (ie those over 5 years) are supposed to have exactly the same health ...

Re: Green "residencia" versus permanent "residencia"

Thank you both for the fast replies. This now matters as apparently under the new health legislation being rushed through by Rajoy as anyone who does not have what they call permanent residencia will have to prove they can cover their own health care and prove they can never be a burden on the syste...

Green "residencia" versus permanent "residencia"

I believe Sid made a point on here a few months back that when you renew your green form (the one that replaced the residencia) you can ask for a permanent one and I am sure he siad it was different to the standard ones, or the wording was different Does anyone know anything about this - what do you...

Re: Spanish Wills

Can you please elaborate further Gus? This gets more confusing, either we can choose according to our nationality or we can´t. If the UK treats it as under spanish law what then? Or are you talking about only in the event of a dispute and not normal probate?

Re: Ticks!!

Frontline does not seem to work as well for ticks here, especially over the last 2 years, .....since using Advantix we have less of a problem, and remember that if your dogs walk near where goats have been they have a much greater risk of picking up ticks...

Re: New health rules

Katy - they defraud the health service by adding family members to their household as dependants simply so that they can get free health care.............

Spanish Wills

I am doing my spanish Testamento finally! I don´t want to use a solicitor as it seems to be money for nothing BUT the pro formas I have seen seem to say that the Will only applies to assets in Spain (applying the UK nationality rules) and assets in UK are disposed of under UK Will. But I thought you...

Re: Bankia takeover of Bancaja

Not tried the online banking via Bankia as it was down all over Easter - does everything stay the same or will there be any changes in contracts, mortgages etc.......? I don´t trust spanish banks, thieving mafia in my opinion!!

Signing off sick when autonomo

I work as Autonomo and now need time off from working for some medical treatment and procedures, including surgery. I don´t know how long it will be for. I believe there is a way of going sick so my contributions are still covered (and thus my health care continues) without doing the normal dar de b...

My M&S orders arrive promptly, often in 5 days from clicking order on website, problem free and have been via Correos or via courier....depending on their size, cost is the same....so long as you read the reviews and take a broad cross section of them then I find I never have a problem with thin...
