Re: Dog Behaviourist

I have used this guy in the past. He is a dog behaviourist not a trainer. May be worth contacting him. He is based around Torre del Mar.

Re: Owner not paying yearly community fee

If you are a community regulated by the Horizontal Property Law, you do have some recourse. If someone fails to pay community charges, they can be taken to court to recover the amount together with court costs and interest. There is now a more streamlined way of achieving this, which your community ...

Re: Notaries, Lawyers, and house completions in August

Not every Notary or Lawyers close in August, although many work mornings only. You may find some delay but you should be able to complete a sale/purchase during the holiday period.

Re: Padron definitive answer

Why wouldn't you sign on ? Even if you only spend a few months here, if you own a house you would expect to receive certain services. Whilst most services are covered by IBI payments, others depend on money received directly from the government. Health centres for example, and yes, you or your guest...

Re: Fishing....

You are correct Katy, if you are over 65 the license is free. You need to go to your Oficina Agraria to get one. Here in Caleta we use the Oficina Comarcal Agrari de Velez-malaga. They also issue cheaper licenses than Telelicencia, but buying it online is much simpler. You do not need to pass any ex...

Re: Question about unpaid Community Fees

There is no where in the Horizontal Property Law that states that an officer must be up to date with their fees in order to perform their duties, however, they cannot vote on any matter concerning the community.
Any officer can be removed from office by a majority vote at either an AGM or EGM.

Re: house alarm

Over 2 floors I have 3 x door detectors, 2 x motion detectors, 2 x still cameras, control box by the front door, and a mobile unit upstairs with all sorts of gadgets on it. Oh, and one of their reps was passing the other week when we were having the outside painted, and dropped off two new signs !!

Re: house alarm

Securitas Direct supply some excellent systems, and if you negotiate well enough, there is no installation charge providing to take out a contract with them. I paid 50 euros / month for the first 18 months, and 23 euros / month thereafter. First class service and response time.

Re: Problem with my pool leaking

Then emptying it will not create any more problems for you. If the leak is somewhere in the finished surface of the pool, you will have to empty it anyway to find the leak. You may find that if the pool is left empty the tiles will start dropping off. Far better not to trickle water in, but to allo...

Re: Roofing Costs

There is an old roof present, but it has collapsed in a few places, so I am currently stripping it off completely.
The building is 3.5mtrs X 28mtrs and will need all new materials.

Roofing Costs

Can anyone give me a rough idea of the cost of a new roof.
It is approx 100 sq mtrs, traditonal Andalucian roofing tile, single aspect.
It would be from scratch on existing walls.

Re: Buying an old house without basic services

Bit difficult to say as you dont give the size of the house. However, a septic tank would cost around 5k - 6k. Just to supply and connect an electric meter will be around 1k, this excludes the necessary wiring from the nearest supply box to the house. I would suggest you get a local builder to take ...

That's correct, provided you have not worked in and or are claiming a Spanish pension Slight change on this.
