Re: Motorhome Matriculation & Homologation!!?

After much "toing" and "froing" with Hymer, I've found that vehicles before the year 2000 wouldn't have had one of these Conformity certificate. They can, however, send me some technical spec sheets at a cost of £150. The snags being (a) they're in German and (b) will they help? Does anyone know or ...

Re: Should we take big electric goods to spain??

Thank you Sid, and someone else gave me a link to a diagram of how to change the plugs which is fantastic. I can rest easy now till we leave. :D

Should we take big electric goods to spain??

Have had conflicting opinions on this question so some sensible advice needed please. We're not sure whether or not to take our electrical appliances from the UK to Spain mainly because most of ours are earthed whereas the Spanish system isn't and just uses the two-prong plug. We did buy travel adap...

Re: Motorhome Matriculation & Homologation!!?

Devils's Advocoate ..thank you so much I will certainly try her :) Gerry... that would be great and 1000euros seems infinitely better than the scary scenarios I was getting. I would appreciate the details of your insurance company too. :D It's wonderful to find people so helpful ... thank you all. Kim

Re: Motorhome Matriculation & Homologation!!?

Hi Gerry Yes, moving from the UK to Competa. It's not new it's 1993 so that's why I guess I don't have one. I have emailed Hymer to see if they can help but time's running away with us at the minute. When you say about 1000euros did that cover the cost of everything, including getting new Spanish pl...

Motorhome Matriculation & Homologation!!?

Just heard about this and as we're leaving in about 4 weeks time with our small german-built lhd hymer campervan it's a bit of a worry. I'm told it costs about 1400 euros to get this "certificate of European conformity", not to mention all the other cost of matriculation ... can anybody shed some li...

Help with Long Term Rentals Axarquia

We'll be moving over there at the end of February and are looking to rent a place long(ish) term until we can find our feet and decide where we want to finally settle. Ideally we'll be looking for a nice (preferably furnished) rustic property with a bit of land for our 3 dogs near to Competa. Does a...

Re: House sold STC ... so here goes ... HELP!

Thanks katy, the landlords of the house we will be renting have installed broadband internet for us so we're okay there. I will be getting a Gestor to sort out my taxes and stuff but I just wanted to know if there was a ballpark percentage (best guess would help) of income tax payable on earnings. I...

House sold STC ... so here goes ... HELP!

:D Hi all. After having our house here in the UK on the market since early May (albeit reduced dramatically in price by now) we have now had a decent offer which we've accepted. We now have to get back to the serious stuff of moving which we'd put on the back burner with all the disappointments of t...
