Re: LHD Spanish Registered Cars Bought in UK

mi–tampoco Well, you said you had a simple question. In fact I thought everybody was doing so well with it that I could only stand by uselessly, but we seem to be missing some essential facts. 1. If a foreigner wishes to purchase a Spanish-registered vehicle, he must either be a registered resident ...

Re: Urbanisation questions

Jool, Yes, "they" can force this on all the owners in the incipient "urbanizacion" and they will do so at some point. Perhaps the initiative for the Junta de Compensacion will come from the Town Hall itself, or from the Junta de Andalucia, or the Ministry of Public Works, if a hi...

Re: How long to get a community debtor into court?

pigs-might-fly, Yes, Spanish court cases can drag on for four years, but a simple suit for payment of debt ought not to do so. 1. You want to see the papers presented for the "demanda" as registered and received by the Court by your Administrator or his lawyer. The President of the Communi...

Re: Urbanisation questions

Jool, Oh, dear, what a mess. Thousands of longtime owners all over Andalusia are in the same boat. They bought when everything consisted of a few houses in the countryside and now progress is rolling towards them. I can offer little hope of resistance, but you can obtain power and knowlege. This wil...

Re: LHD Spanish Registered Cars Bought in UK

me_tampoco, Yes, there are ways to check on unpaid traffic fines, unpaid time payments and so on in Spain, the Spanish equivalent of HPI. You want a "Nota Simple" from the Traffic Department about fines and tickets, and you want another "Nota Simple" from the Registro de Bienes M...

Re: vehicle licensing

Geo, Yes, there is provision for building your own airplane or car or motorcycle and getting it licenced for use in the air or on the road. The body in charge of this is the INTA, the "Instituto Nacional de Transporte y Aeronautica". You will probably have to haul your creation to Madrid. ...

Re: Let's Hope.............

Paula and Katy,

Yes, please, let us hear from "Sid" and "Beach". I figure to learn from this experience, not just pontificate, and I look forward to it.

Re: Embargo

Dear Mowser, The IBI is a municipal tax. It is the "rates". Write a short note to them, explaining that the 2007 tax was charged to someone who had not owned the property for 10 years. Include your details from your original sale, photocopy of compraventa contract from 1988. Respectfully r...

Re: 1 metre high retaining wall

Dear Gerry, Let's tighten up here. Legal questions are not answered by asking somebody. They are answered by reading data written on a piece of paper, voted by legislators and published in the State Bulletin. If you want to get a real answer, we find that Cajiz belongs to the Municipality of Velez-M...
