Re: Successfully deterring cats

Enrique lol, I have two cat haters, a little terrier of some sort and a galga who wondered off the street a year ago into our house (she was 5 months old or so), but the cats are sneaky buggers and coming in during the night. One particular cat keeps tring during the day and evokes much excitement a...

Successfully deterring cats

I'm sure this will be controversial and I apologise if it's been raised before but I wonder has anyone any ideas on how to deter cats from coming in and pooing on the terraces. I have tried electronic hi frequency gadgets which seemed to work for a while but they don't last or at least the cat(s) ev...

Re: Municipal confinement?

One thing that has come out of this is that we have worked out where the municipal boundaries are. I wanted to get an android box to a friend whose Google Chromecast wouldn't work in Spain (He's renting on holiday but has had flights cancelled so staying rather longer than expected lol). The officia...

Re: Residencia

Depends if they use the same income criteria as 3rd world applicants. Much more than EU members

Re: Curfew?

Very frustrating these new rules and confusing too as they are open to interpretation. The Junta are meeting today at 6pm to decide how they're going to implement the state of alarm. I guess that means do they still allow 10 around a table or down to 6 and will curfew in Andalucia be 10.00pm or 11.0...

Re: Curfew?

It will happen though. I take it you have seen the new rules in Andalucia regarding mask wearing. I'm not sure how it will help or how it can be policed. Faced with the rising curve of Covid-19 cases, the Board has imposed the mandatory use of the mask on the terraces in Andalusia. With this measure...

Re: Payment of outstanding bills

In Almeria we can pay bills online without a digital signature (although I do have one and actually pay all by direct debit) but I don't know if it is possible in other regions. Just in case anyone is curious here is the link . I paid my friend's car tax for him as he thought he had a direct debit s...

Re: First actual problem re:Brexit

Both Nationwide and Co-Op bank gave me non committal answers as regarding closing current accounts. They both said they would advise if any change well in advance so I suspect accounts will not be closed.

Re: Any help for elderly person on their own?

Thank you, yes, he has been resident for more than 5 years. He only has the state pension plus a small private pension but together they probably add up to as much as some people earn in this region. Also his Spanish is very limited so I suspect it's going to be a difficult route. His family in UK h...

Any help for elderly person on their own?

We have a situation where a friend / neighbour has been left on his own and has health issues. He is not supposed to be drinking, but due to a personal situation, he has probably started again and so on top of everything else (various heath issues copd etc) he is not eating either. He really needs s...

Re: First actual problem re:Brexit

I've only ever read bank accounts and never saw credit cards mentioned until I saw it on this forum. Just Googled it and it's all about current accounts. Here's one https://www.theguardian.com/money/2020/ ... ays-brexit

Re: First actual problem re:Brexit

This passporting issue raised it's head some time ago as well with regard to pensions not being able to be paid into a UK bank if the recipient was not a UK resident. In the event it never materialised and I had written confirmation from Scottish Widows and Aviva that irrespective of any agreement o...

Re: First actual problem re:Brexit

I haven't heard anything from Nationwide. I have a current account, a credit card and a debit card (joint account so my wife has all the same). The credit card is handy as Nationwide still give the full commercial rate on credit card transactions over here. I opened a Transferwise account some time ...

However, I don't need a Tie for ID as I various alternatives and having listened to this video it seems that we don;t need to exchange it. One of my reasons for not chan...

Re: Citrus trees

I must admit I don't water and I'm wondering if previously the numerous water leaks were doing the job for us lol.
Maybe now they are apparently fixed I might need to water.

Re: Citrus trees

I wish I could help. When we moved into the villa we had 2 orange trees, a grapefruit tree and a kumquat. All had lots of fruit, then we had to remove them apart from the grapefruit tree (nowhere else to put a shed). I planted a mandarin tree which has been doing really, although last year very few ...
