Re: Disappearing History

History is something I'm fairly passionate about too, so this is a long post... First things first: history cannot disappear because it has never been settled - history is by its very nature the reinterpretation of limited selections of the past. It can never tell all of the past, and the narrative ...

Padron deregistration after move

Hi,

I changed my residence over Christmas and am back on the padron in Torrox, but I just logged into my old town hall in the northwest and don't seem to have been taken off there yet. I was informed this would happen automatically - incorrect info, or just COVID19 delay do you think?

You're sure the link in the email works? I'm not talking about getting the email, it's the link *in it* that is broken. I had a guess at various permutations of the URL included and none worked.

Forum forgotten password links don't work

Hi, there's a problem with the site password reset function - the links in the reset email don't work, always goes to a 404 page.

I seemed to have changed mine on an older phone and forgotten about it, so was trying to reset on my computer. Didn't work.

Thought best you know.

Re: Coronavirus

Around 75 million died during the war. It took a few decades before Monty Python type programmes surfaced. This is not a war. Not disagreeing with your point, but for relevance, only 20m died in WWI all counted then 50m died from the flu the troops brought back with them. So the earlier war is more...

No idea, one of the advantages of getting certificates online is it doesn't matter if they are or not :)

Re: How do I get the padron certicate online from Torrox?

OK, answer my own question - it's not on the Torrox site! You have to go to the main sede administracion of the government and agree to the notificaciones pendientes in the carpeta here https://sede.administracion.gob.es/carpeta/clave.htm This seems bizarre to me as the last place I lived you just d...

How do I get the padron certicate online from Torrox?

I have [email protected] etc so 've submitted two requests for it via the sede electronica of Torrox town hall, and have downloaded signed receipts of my request, bit I don't seem to be sent, nor able to find on their site, the actual certificate. What am I missing?


Thanks.

Re: Changing to Spanish driving licence

Gestors I use seem to charge €40 for most administrative things because it was the same price to process my car matriculation as it was to exchange driving licences, despite the former involving a fair bit more paper. I can only assume the southern ones see this as a little Brexit supply-and-demand ...
