The new owner probably didn't complete the paperwork. My neighbour keeps getting bills for a car he sold 4 years ago. Hew passed the paperwork to the new owner who did nothing about it.
But it was all done through a gestor?

Although I know I paid it bu...

I recently renewed mine and they informed me they had canceled the policy on the Spanish house as It was my residence when I took it out, It is no longer my residence so they can insur...

Intasure new policy

Intasure will now not insure your house in Spain if you live there permanently, they will though if it's a holiday home.

I was able to insure a house I was using as a home in another country with them though.

Does any one know the reasoning behind this?

Re: she wants to go back to UK

How awful, I would remind her all the bad things in the Uk that made you want to get out, and point out that it´s only worse now thanks to all this recession stuff. If you thought it was bad before, it´s only gotten worse :problem:

Re: Smell in bathroom

Check the base of the toilet, it might be an idea to lift it and sit it on a sealant, some toilets just sit over a hole in the ground, usually with a rubber pipe but smell can seep past the base if not sealed to the floor.
