Yes, be concerned and get it tested. Contact your town hall.

Re: Travel to the UK

Can’t see it being lifted until Spain’s infection rate (39 per 100,000) matches uk (15 per 100,000).

60% reduction ain’t trivial. WTF sanctioned opening nightclubs? :wtf:q

Pool inverter heater

Hi just been quoted €3,300 for a heater for my 8*4m pool, 60,000 liters.

Sounds like an awful lot of money! Anyone know of a good local installer to get an alternative quote. Frigiliana campo house.

Re: Disappearing History

Nothing wrong with remembering and learning from History. Very wrong to have monuments to those who were on the wrong side of it. Should we have left on public display busts of Hitler and his cronies? What about Stalin, Saddam Hussein? i took one of my best friends, a german, to a bar - whose owner ...

Re: Tax penalty

I've always been somewhat confused by the June deadline for submitting IRNR Modelo 210. Like the OP I've not been able to return since the March lockdown so am in a similiar predicament. Although we technically own three properties in Spain only one is residential i.e. vivienda, the other two are a...

Re: Tax penalty

Well luckily, given the lack of knowledge, I’ve found the details on an old form and can get cracking with my favourite modelo later when a storm is forecast to hit us in the UK.

Tax penalty

I am in the uk and all my impuesto tax information is in my house in Spain. Instead of visiting from april to July it now looks as though I will not get out until September. This means that the tax I owe in June ( for fiscal 2019) will not be paid until October. I know most people have until Decembe...

Paradores

We received an email yesterday informing us that paradores are closed. We have a one night booking in April and the standard terms are you lose one nights fee if you cancel. We are only staying one night. Anyone know if they’ve changed their “standard” conditions?

Re: Malagacar.com 15% discount

Sadly looks as though won’t be using that any time soon. Better news is that the Madrid hotel on plaza mayor has allowed me to cancel at zero cost, when the terms were no refunds.

Re: Coronavirus

That was a brilliant story Manchesteral. Friends in the UK said that they will be going to the local village shop and the farm shop for food, as it was like a riot in the supermarket. If one good thing comes from this it may support small local food businesses. I've always had a large store cupboar...

Potencia change

I have logged in to my endesa account, gone to contract and clicked the relevant change fields to reduce my potencia. I thought this would be activated online but a note comes up saying my request has been submitted.

Anyone know how long it takes?

Re: DELPASO Car Hire – A cautionary tale.

Just two of us 6' 1" and 5' 2", went just fine - even up steep slopes. In fact better than the 1 litre corsas we've had in the past.

Yes i wouldn't book it with 4 people - there wouldn't even be space for the cabin luggage!

Just back from a very sunny and hot 8 days yesterday. Rented through doyouspain.com using OK renta car at malaga airport. €7.60 for the 8 days.

I remember posting on here about Spanish inheritance law being a minefield. Seems ok from Husband to wife etc. . As the law has changed I think. Myself and 5 other relatives inherited from an Aunt.
