House sale proceeds

If we sell our house here in Andalucia to an English buyer can we have the proceeds sent directly to our English bank account without having the proceeds deposited with the buyers legal team? We are resident in Spain and have been for nine years.

Re: Rhubarb roundup

The three crowns we planted last year have survived, two particularly strong the other slightly runt of the litter, giving several good sized sticks although we did not pick any. The plants were kept in partial shade and watered though not religiously. We have now covered the plants in manure and wi...

Re: Filmon block Filter

Hi Enrique, yes had a good holiday thanks. Watching Scotland/Wales today, programme kept getting interrupted with ads, top right hand corner of screen was a small Block icon.

Re: Architectural Salvage

Thanks for all replies, we do want to sell them, they are extremely ornate and we think very rare. There is no rush to dispose of them and we shall try various avenues to sell.

Re: Car Insurance NCB

Thanks oliveview01, all of our cover from Mapfre has been what we considered FC, although we have not heard that term used here. As for the age of the car, this has not been an issue with either Mapfre, LD or one other company we have contacted. We are not looking for the cheapest quote but wonderin...
