Re: I Don't Have Any Pets in Spain....

Unfortunelty most town halls in Andlaucia have put laws in place and fines of up to €1,500 for anyone caught feeding ferral cats. Thought you should know just in case you get caught!

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Merry Christmas and hope you all have a great new year.

Re: Selling Property

People have tried the 1% commission here in Spain, it doesn´t work. There is so much work to get a deal to actually go to completion and in an unregulated real estate market it´s not easy.

Good luck though you will need it.
