Re: Roots in deposito

Sounds about right as no plants anywhere near them. Plan is to clean and cut. Im a bit resistant about putting weedkiller in my water supply though🤔😂

Roots in deposito

Still getting used to our new place and eventually got round to lifting the trap door over our underground deposito. I was a bit surprised to see a lot of plant roots inside it. Plan is to drain it, jet wash it and remove tge roots. Its not leaking and the roots seem to come through above the water ...

Irrigation leak

Our house is bordered by a campo irrigation system, in fact on one side it runs under our land. Since the water has been switched back on, it was closed down until last week, there has been a trickle of water running from our land, down the road. It looks as if its coming from under our land. Its no...

Deposit or well?

Please dont shoot me down for stupidity but any advice would be appreciated. We recently bought a campo house outside Coin. It was described as having town water and irrigation water. It does in fact have town water. However in the attached garage/lean to is a pump which feeds into the house supply ...

Car finance

When we get back to normality i thinking of treating myself to a new car. As the better deals here invariably come with accepting the financed price can anyone advise re the probability of being accepted for finance. Does Spain have the same credit scoring system as the UK, if so can we view it? Wha...

Re: Rental deposit return

The landlord is Spanish and I agree, re the payment for outstanding months. As mentioned before i will agree anything reasonable but wont be fleeced. Annoyingly he and the agent both remarked how amazingly well kept the place was when we handed it back. i had completely redecorated and gutted the pl...

Re: Rental deposit return

Unfortunately the 2 years with a percentage payment for any months shorter was indeed in the contract but he did verbally contradict it by saying we could move earlier if needed. In fact, when I first questioned his first threats to hit us with damages I remarked that I was dissapointed as we had be...

Re: Rental deposit return

Good advice Gerry and appreciated. I read through the Citizens Advice info and it looks like were not covered by the latest legislation (pre 18 Dec 2018) so he could enforce the charges for not completing the agreed 2 years. I will give him another fortnight as he will definitely have the quarterly ...

Re: Rental deposit return

Indeed, we are uk landlords in the UK and the deposit scheme does work well. We just never realised it existed here. Additionally, though the initial rental was for 2 years he did say that after 6 months we could go with 30 days notice without penalties. Now hes threatening to charge for a percentag...

Rental deposit return

We moved out of a rental property, which as far as we are concerned was well looked after. We handed over fine and the landlord said he would refund the 2 months deposit to our account. He has since said he is not happy with the condition and is still waiting for the last quarters water bill. We mov...

Bottle brush bush

Obviously not the bush's real name but the last place we lived in had a beautiful bush, seemed drought tolerant, the flowers resembled bottle cleaning brushes. Bright red and yellow. Anyone got any ideas of their real name?
