Re: House sale proceeds

Notwithstanding, the risk exists and whilst not an everyday event it can happen and I would consider it to be irresponsible not to make this known to the seller.

Re: House sale proceeds

Well I will count myself lucky that the buyers large and reputable Legal Firm didn't reverse the transfer then.

Re: House sale proceeds

Don't give the buyers lawyer a sniff of it. Currencies direct will send a rep. to the Notaria on day of completion, you hand them the cheque and job done. Money will be in your own bank account of choice within 48 hours. If on completion day you are owed €350k I cannot see any difference whether th...

Re: Certificate of Permanent Residence/T.I.E

Below from another Forum The TIE. Whether or not you have ticked the correct boxes on the TIE, it appears to make no difference. Many have been provided with a TIE that does not match their status. Being told not to worry they are still valid is not acceptable and you do not know what happens furthe...

Re: Certificate of Permanent Residence/T.I.E

Yes they did, but apparently the fault was with the card printers in Madrid who in put wrong info into the machines that manufacture the cards and a great many are WRONGLY WORDED https://www.thelocal.es/20201001/brexit-the-two-mistakes-to-look-out-for-on-your-tie-spanish-residency-card?fbclid=IwAR16...

Re: Road Trip

The autovía may have drastically shortened the time it takes to drive from the north to the south of Spain and vice-versa but it has has totally destroyed the experience I know you can leave it whenever you wish but it's not the same. There are beautiful villages which one would never even think of...

Re: Road Trip

Ah, thinking about it again some of the gems we found were off the beaten track, La Pedraza in Segovia for instance, stayed in the best hotel we've ever used in Spain, beautiful place with a world renowned restaurant too in the lovely walled village. Whether it's open and functioning in these times...
