Re: Brexit and Travel

Assuming you have a permanent residents TIE, nobody could care less if you stay away unless its for more than 5 years!

Re: Brexit and Travel

Although they should not have stamped it, I don't think it really matters. They are not supposed to stamp residents passports, but if the situation arises that you subsequently get stopped for overstaying and show your TIE they would not stamp it with the dreaded "overstay" stamp.

Re: buying beds and bedding

No, it was a bed salesman who just joined to advertise his beds.

The relevant post was deleted which is probably why you thought it was Gus.

Sorry if it confused you.

Re: Income Tax & Pension

That depends. I pay no tax in Spain due to the low income allowance. That is because I also have private pensions in the form of annuities and only pay tax on 28% of that income and it is not counted towards the low income allowance. It all depends on your personal income situation and for me it is ...

Re: House Aircon servicing

We replaced our units two years ago after 16 years of use and no services at all. The guy who installed the new units said they were in perfect condition. All they usually do is clean the filters which you can do yourself. Save yourself some money and just clean the filters. Call the engineers when ...

Re: Changes to Electricity Tariffs

Yes the weekend deal is good but there have been other deals where you can choose free periods. I really think it is now worth looking at all the offers around as it has suddenly opened up the market whereas before, unless you were classified as a heavy user, the rates were almost the same whoever y...

Re: Changes to Electricity Tariffs

We are still on the twin tariff where the low rate is 14 hours from 11pm to 1pm. All the high power items are used within that period, even the underfloor heating. The only high wattage items that are used in the peak period are the aircon units. Over 12 months 78% of our usage is in the off peak pe...

No, I am with Modo since when I changed over from Iberdrola. I am on the existing double tarif. This has not changed, the hours are the same as before and the rates have gone down by a small amount. I am on a 14kw potencia which might make a difference as previously that meant I was in the open mark...

Re: Blood Fish & Bone

Growmore and Blood, Fish and Bone are, to all intents and purposes identical. There are so many different fertilisers available for all sorts of different plants, soil types and environments that it can be very confusing. In reality the sale of fertilisers is a triumph of marketing over science. Pla...

Unless you only use organic fertilisers, the standard 15.15.15 abono is readily available and very much cheaper. Available from any viveros in 25kg bags.
