Re: Guardia and the CV rules.

Why oh why are people referring to GC agents as officers?! I've noticed on this forum and others that Brit immigrants use the word officer. They are not officers apart from a few senior ones. So stop trying to elevate their status. Call them funcionarios, agents or a few other things. They really ar...

Re: Deposito water pressure?

I'm wondering whether my water pipes are partially blocked or, actually, the system is working as it should and I'm worrying about nothing. Mains water flows into a 15,000 litre deposito, the base of which sits about 1.5 metres above our house and is connected to a pump. At the moment when we turn ...

Re: Land Registry and Catastral problem

I don't know if you're confused or just presented your situation badly. Firstly, If a recent nota simple states that you are the owner, that means you are the owner! Nota simple is a reflection of what's on the register which is backed by an escritura. Secondly, catastro does NOT define ownership an...

Re: Harvesting green olives

I know that black olives are harvested November December, but when are green olives harvested? They seem to be green for a long time. I only have a couple of trees and would like to have a go at preserving them. Believe it or not, it's obvious when to pick them. Firstly, forget about choosing a dat...

Re: Lottery security changes

Hi yes we were fiscal residents as had an SL company for a 12 years.

Re: Urbanisation bans all plants in my own garden

I presume u made a typo.........it's art591 and 592 of the Codigo Civil. The distances are general but can be defined at townhall level also. For instance, for us, a bush - half metre; normal tree - 1 metre; palm -3m; euculytus - 6m, etc. The neighbour can cut overhanging branches and also cut tresp...

U fixed the problem without consultation with your landlord, so it's totally your liability. Any problems with a rental should firstly be communicated to your landlord, v...

Re: Water deposit

I think you're going down the wrong road!! Buy a 1m3 water tank and a pump to pump the water to the house when pressure is low. Total cost for both no more than 300 euros. Obviously the tank gets filled automatically with mains water. U might even be able to put the tank on the roof of your house. V...

Re: Tenant or landlord's name for utilities?

It's more standard practice to put the utilities in the tenant's name. e.g. v easily done with Endesa; just add the tenant's name as a third party through the online system. The landlord retains ownership, the tenant is responsible for paying the bills. Having said that, we'll be renting out our fin...

Re: Artificial Grass

Buy the longest grass available. We have either 35 or 40mm. Put it down years ago and still in perfect condition. Spray with water occasionally and rake stones and leaves out too.

The "short" grass is rubbish and falls apart.
