Re: Sold the house in Andalucia. Here's how it went.

Thanks as always Beachy and also for your kind words. Yes, your advice and reasons why the online account may be locking us out was lodged in my mind and I asked the lady at Unicaja if this was indeed the reason. She told us the password did not need changing after first use and that we must simply ...

Re: Sold the house in Andalucia. Here's how it went.

FAl, many thanks for that and the info. provided. We have kept the Unicaja account live but honestly thought the retentions would be paid via the Currencies Direct account if we supplied the details. I'll now have to look in to this. Again thank you.

Re: Sold the house in Andalucia. Here's how it went.

Hi D.A, If you had/have on-line banking then you could print off the Statements........ :idea: You know Enrique, we tried our hardest to achieve online banking status with Unicaja. We had about 20 different attempts with new numbers etc., and could only get them when we actually went over there and...

Re: Sold the house in Andalucia. Here's how it went.

Lovely of you to say that Miro and as you know I'd honestly never have been as confident with the whole process if I'd not spoken with you first and received the advice you gave with your hands on and recent knowledge of the subject. Thank you very much indeed and can't wait to meet up with you on t...

Re: Sold the house in Andalucia. Here's how it went.

Another point I forgot to mention was the reading of the electric and water meters. We can't be on our own here in campo properties but this proved a difficult challenge for something we thought would be simple. Our fresh water supply comes from Sayalonga and enters our hillside at a point where all...

Re: Sold the house in Andalucia. Here's how it went.

Thanks very much Olive and great to hear you've been out and about sticking a few miles on the clock. So happy you had a super time in Scotland too, excellent stuff. Funny you mention Italy, it's on our hit list too. In fact we are thinking of a jaunt to the black forest and a stay in Freiburg, not ...

Very kind of you to say Sid and again it's appreciated. Also many thanks for your words of encouragement whilst we were in Spain, always nice to hear a calming voice at the end of the line when you are up against it.
Many thanks once more.

Re: Sold the house in Andalucia. Here's how it went.

Looking back to last week I reckon our main fear on selling after reading many threads on the issue was repatriating the money and not being ripped off. Avoiding using the bank was the best advice we could have received. I had fears of the buyers paying the balance and a thousand grubby hands thrust...

Irene, thank you very much for that and we hope to maybe see you again on a future visit, we both send our regards to you and your family. The selling process is a strain but with the wealth of knowledge on here as you rightly say we did at least forearm ourselves as much as we could beforehand. Whi...

Re: Headlamp adaptors for lhd car in uk

We sailed from Plymouth on Pont Aven a few weeks back when we went across to complete on the house. It was the only ferry available at short notice. I was dreading the trip from Lancashire but it certainly proved easier than the shorter route we had back from Portsmouth a few days ago....it was a do...

Sold the house in Andalucia. Here's how it went.

So, aprox. 2.5 years ago the hard decision to part with our lovely place in Andalucia was taken. It was not a lightly taken decision either and we spoke about it and discussed the merits and downsides at length before the agents were approached. In a nutshell I think we were just not using it enough...

Thanks very much for that Olive. I'll certainly keep you informed re. the Bilba visit, just been looking at the hotel now and working out routes to the port and also trying to find the public transport links to Bilbao central.

Thanks again Mark and 1bassleft, great info. once more. I now understand what you mean Mark after looking at exactly where the port is and the lay out of the town. Problem is though once more is that a lot of the hotels we liked the look of are booked solid for the nights we need, we've earmarked a ...
