Hi Alan,

Don`t know anyway round it all, this is normal for AOL personally I wouldn`t touch them with a barge pole. I worked in IT in the UK with over 200,000 customers and our system would not work if you where using AOL so we advised all of our customers not to use them.

Regards

I use an excellent vet in La Campana, Nueva Andalucia. He Speaks enough English to let you know what is going on and is very reasonable. Going down the Hill in La Campana towards San Pedro he is about half way down on the right.

Hi,

I am only going on what their Bank Managers told me when I applied for a mortgage, a friend of mine has also been told the same when he applied for a mortgage (he was also refused after proving income of nearly 40,000 pounds a year).

A friend used them an had nothing but huge bank charges every time they made a transaction. As a Resident my best deal came from the B...

Sounds about right to me, take into consideration that if you have any problems ie- your tenant decides not to pay the bills or rent or even leave the premises at the end of the contract the solicitor will take the probelm to the courts at no extra cost!
