Re: Kicking Endesa Into Touch

In our first house, we registered on the endesa APP, and paid all the bills that came to the house by visa card. We had a notification saying there was a bill, logged in, and paid it.. easy really, its a shame it cant be like that for everyone.

Re: Missed traffico notification

as beach said, too late is too late. The insurance company only knows when you do, they dont know in advance and will also be too late to see it so that you get a discount.

The only way to know on time is from the DGT.

Re: Where to get good fruit trees near Ronda

look at "ferreteria" shops rather than garden centres, they will be much cheaper. Have a look on milanuncios or wallapop too.

Re: Empadronamiento

I believe that your name gets removed from the official list after 5 years of "no activity" ?

but i also thought there was no need to renew it unless it was needed.. imagine 20,000 people going into that office every year?

I wonder if its meant to be wired outside the room, direct to a switch so that you can turn it on / off with possibly wet hands when you are outside of the bathroom? When I was working w...
