Re: Why some Spanish Bank Accounts are being blocked

Does the number start with 0044?
If so it can be dialed the same as dialing *44

Re: Locksmith

Do you have house insurance?
Most insurance companies have an emergency callout locksmith for such problems.

Re: Transferring house sale money to UK

As the above two posts say, use a money transfer company.
You can pay in your money in Euros and, usually, set a minimum exchange rate for it to be exchanged into GBP. When your rate is reached it is exchanged in GBP
When you have a UK account you can transfer the money into your account.

Re: Masmovil. any reports good or bad?

The important thing to be aware of is which network operator they use. The main operators are Vodafone, Orange, and Movistar. If they don't cover where you live then they won't be suitable for you. I believe Hitsmobile uses Vodafone. Masmovil claims to have their own network but an article I read sa...

Re: Whatsapp on L G phone

When I said "So all totally free." I was refering to the fact that the data usage does not come out of my data allowance.

Re: Whatsapp on L G phone

Until Manchesteral says which phone provider and which tariff he is on it is difficult to advise precisely.
I have a contract with Vodafone and the data used by Whatsapp is not deducted from my monthly data allowance.
So all totally free.

Re: Buying a rural property - are any legal??

As the 2 posters above have said a proper multi-chamber septic tank, used correctly, should never need emptying. I've had mine for 13 years. So surprised to see in an earlier post:- "I have just discovered /been told that Vélez-Málaga have recently changed the rules for septic tanks. Apparently...

The way mine works if I understand it correctly. The water, loo output etc enters the first chamber this has an inspection hatch. Thi...

Re: Buying a rural property - are any legal??

Hi the other Gerrys
When you refer to septic tanks do you mean the modern 3 chamber ones as opposed to a hole in the ground?
Can you post details/ specifications of the "cylindrical container, (2m long), filled with 3 different types of aggregate,"
Cheers

Re: Empadronamiento

So a total bill of 1053€ a year.
The post was about the cost of "house tax" in Spain compared with the UK.
How much would an equivalent house be in the UK.?

Re: Empadronamiento

Correct I am registered. One of the first things I did when I arrived in Spain nearly 16 years ago.
Just wasn't aware Velez Malaga Ayuntomeinto offered discounts on IBI bills.
But since my IBI bill is less than €50 a year I'm not to bothered in missing out on the discount.

Re: Empadronamiento

Must have missed that but since my IBI is ridiculously low and the increase due to the cadastral values being revised made only a few euros difference, I'm not bothered if I missed out on the discount. :wave:
