Re: Payment of outstanding bills

go to the officina de recaudaccion and ask them to pull up all the outstanding bills for your name, your wifes name, the address, the registration number of your cars.


then you can take them to the bank and pay them, or pay them with your online banking app there and then in the office.

Re: Beware of old tariffs

I have a friend who was without Movistar landline/internet for two weeks. I wrote an appeal and they reduced the corresponding bill by €30. Customer care like that is the reason I have stayed with Telefónica/Movistar for thirty five years. I totally agree, I only changed (to 02, owned by telefonica...

Re: Runner ducks

There are ducks and chickens avaliable in ferreterias etc, but the "specilised" ones will probably come from a breeder, or bring some from the uk?

Perhaps the ferreteria that sells them can get them, like order them in special?

Re: Solid core cable

Before you spend a fortune, have a spanish electrician come out and test it. You dont 'have' to replace 'solid' cable, in fact 'solid' cable can carry more amps than 'flex' cable. Yes, its no longer sold on the open market, yes, its outdated. Is it 'prohibited' or 'illegal'? Nope. But to be honest i...

you probably need to speak to the urbanisation first? maybe they havent paid their taxes to the town hall and this is their way of "persuading" them.
