Re: best free spanish translator program

You might be better off with a free OCR program - I use FreeOCR which I found while googling, but there are plenty to choose from (or at least there was a couple of years ago when I downloaded mine) :-)

Re: BOPMalaga

I've just opened the link https://www.bopmalaga.es/buscar.php but it doesn't have any boxes to put name or NIE ! Should I choose one of the drop down menus ?

BOPMalaga

It's some time since I used this, and it all seems to have changed ! I've tried a couple of links found on here, but they don't seem to be what I'm looking for, which is to see if there is anything about an outstanding payment. Can someone point me in the right direction and confirm all I need is a ...

Re: Property valuation

There was a Spanish will, but I have a feeling it was superceded by the UK one. We had an English solicitor who is also qualified in Spain, but it was over 5 years ago now, & I can't honestly remember much about it, other than it seemed to take forever ! My 2 step daughters were involved, as my husb...

Re: Property valuation

Yes, that's what happened when my husband died, half our Spanish property (jointly owned) was included in Probate. We are/were Non-Resident

Re: UK PAYG mobile providers

Wicksey, the monthly plans are PAYG - you buy a 'package' and it lasts until it runs out of credit, or at least that's what mine does. I can't remember if I've ever topped it up in the 18 months or so I've had it, if I have, then it must have been ages ago ! I don't use it for apps or downloads, and...

Re: UK PAYG mobile providers

I use giffgaff - I hardly use my phone, just a few texts & the odd phone call. I haven't had to topup since I joined them in April 2018 !
Take a look at their site -

Re: Accessing IBI bills online

Beachcomber - It just asks for the matricula, area & NIE and then gives me "Existe/n recibo/s pendiente/s de pago referente/s a los datos introducidos." I'm sure that previously it also asked for Cargo & something else that I can't remember offhand. I'm using my late husband's NIE as that is what is...

Accessing IBI bills online

I know I gave instructions on this years ago, but following my own instructions is getting me nowhere ! The web page doesn't ask me for all the details I thought I had to enter, and with what I can enter, it just comes back with 'nothing there'. I need to get this year's, as I don't think there is e...

Re: malagacarhire.com

A few years ago, we got to the airport in Malaga for our journey home, when hubby realised he'd left his jacket in the apartment, which contained his passport ! The resort was a good half hour away - I rang reception and asked them to look in the apartment which they did & sent the jacket, with pass...

Re: Milky coffee

I find that on the coast I have to order cafe solo grande, con leche aparto which does the trick (I can then put a lot less milk in it !). Inland the cafe con leche is usually much stronger, and works OK for me.

I seem to recall it's your Andalucia Health number - hubby had one years ago (not that he was resident, it just made life easier for the Medical centre !)
