So I put my property on the market . . . . . .

And within ten days I have had an offer of the full asking price. We have been surprised by the speed of the offer and really didn't expect it to sell so quickly. Now we have an estate agent chasing us to sign the deposit form so he can take the deposit from the buyer. We now wonder if we want to se...

Re: AP7

If you don't go on the AP7 and just exit onto the A7 it's only three or four minutes longer in journey.

Re: 3% retention tax

Davey, have you another property in Spain or do you reside there ? If not do you feel they will pursue you back in Ireland ?

Re: So "For Sale Ads" are not allowed here . . . . .

I think Gordon is correct. If A.com doesn't keep up it wont attract new members and then traffic falls and it dies. A for sale/wanted sub forum could be easily managed and moderated.

2017 quieter on CDS ? (San Pedro / Estepona)

My son has just returned after a week in our place between San Pedro & Estepona. He said it was really quiet. No line up for car in Malagacar.com and our complex was nearly empty. This story was also confirmed by a friend here in Dublin that spent two weeks in the same area. The tourist season u...

Re: Theft from car.

Last year at this time there was a spate of thefts from cars at the Benavista Center at KM 167 Richard. Silly people we know had absolutely everything except the clothes they were wearing stolen. Once I arrive at my place I take out the rear parcel shelf so its obvious there is nothing to see/rob.

Re: Stop engine oil leak

And there is nothing that ytou could put into the engine to stop a leak of oil. If there is a leak you need to find the source and fix it (gasket or pipe).

Re: BEST CAR ALARM

Patricia, don't buy one hoping to move it on to your next car. They are not designed for that and unless the same auto electrician installs and uninstalls it you will have a nightmare.

Re: Power of Attorney

In Ireland you need to have the person (mother in your case) undergo a test with her GP to ensure she fully understands whats happening. This involves some general knowledge questions and some maths questions. This shows if she is mentally all there. The doctor then signs a form to show the results....

Re: flying from malaga

I've never had a delay being transferred from Malagacar's office to the terminal. A lot of times they even use the car I've just returned in to drive me up to departures. My last experience of this was march 21st.
