Keeping a pet. EU Directive ? ?

Not in Spain but has anyone heard about an EU Directive that would over ride community rules on keeping a pet ? In our community in Spain someone mentioned that it "could" be against EU laws to stop someone having a pet. All comments welcome. Thanks.

Well done Spanish Lad. My wife nearly booked a flight from Dublin when I told her about the stash. The ladies will put it all to good use.

Re: Patchwork on the Costa?

My wife is an "offshore member" :-) of Quilters del Sol and has really enjoyed meeting the resident members when we are out there. I guess they will snap your arm off when they get the offer of the material. Sorry for you loss Spanish lad, I lost my mother in November aged 97 and I still think of he...

We are in El Paraiso. Avatel in our community and no complaints that I'm aware of. I dislike the collection method of the cost but thats an admin issue.

Re: Removal of furniture from fourth floor apartment

I have seen all sorts of large items being put into flats in Loja by a mobile lift. Clever bit of kit presumably owned by the local dept store or rented for the occasion. they look like a giant fire ladder and the platform moves up the frame. Might be worth asking at the local dept store. Here you ...

Spanish Tax on property at Death ?

My sibling bought a property over twenty years ago and for "avoidance" reasons put it into a trust in my parents name to be held for him. One of my parents passed away eight years ago and the sibling paid tax to transfer the property in the sole name of the surviving parent. Can anyone give me a rou...

Finding a Spanish Will ?

My mom died recently & one of my siblings is being difficult about her "non Spanish estate". She made a Spanish will a few years ago to cover an apartment that was belonging to the said sibling :crazy: but when he bought it he placed it in a trust to be held for him when she died. Am I correct in th...

Anyone in Competa ?

My best mate is on a trail bike course there at the moment. He's been sending me pics showing the good weather while we freeze here in Ireland. Do me a favour, if you see any bikers having lunch in the town then ask for Brian and tell him Luke says hello. That will spook him :D :D :D

Re: Spain-based British professional scammers, stay alert

Spain seems to have a few of these "Sales bases". If you are on any of the Facebook groups advertising jobs on the CDS there is a constant stream of "Marbella based" companies looking for telesales people with sales experience. Out of boredom I've messaged a few and found them to be less than Kosher...

Re: AP7

Coming from Airport, take the exit for A7 not AP7. Thats the old road and it tracks the coast. Yes it's busier but moving at 80 Km's most of the way unless it's blocked by an accident it really isn't a lot slower.

Re: Community pigeon problem

Maybe a report to the local constabulary that "foreign looking" men have been seen coming and going from the property ? They might use the big red key to open the door and search the property.
