Re: Dama de noche question

Ours have never got berries or seeds ... ours were already planted out in the garden when we arrived over ten years ago and we have only lost one which was in a particularly dry patch during a drought. The others are fine and one is practically a tree now, 8 ft high, and needs pruning to tame it. If...

Re: Dama de noche question

They do tend to drop their leaves over winter, but with it being a mild one this year, some of our branches have retained their leaves while others have dropped off! New shoots and leaves are also starting to grow - poor thing is confused. As long as your twigs still have green, flexibleness and hav...

Re: How to get a final statement for closed bank account

We left Santander Spain after a disagreement and supposedly closed all our accounts and got final statements for each, showing 0.00 euros as the last amounts were transferred out to other accounts or into our hot little hands ... several years later when an investment account "reached" a final term ...

Re: Bringing my dualsport Suzuki to Spain

If cars have a modification (like our Defender land rover has a winch on the front) you can get an engineer to make a report (informe) at a fee of course, to detail what the vehicle has, and whether the modifications come within some sort of standard - eg ours was fitted by Land Rover as homologued ...

Re: Muscle relaxants for facial and head pain

I would suggest you go into your Farmacia and ask - take in with you either examples of what you need - even if British supplied as they will be able to look up the Spanish equivalent - or do a Google search to identify what you think you want ... and print out or write down the details. Sorry - not...

Re: non resident car owners

Careful with Wikseys note - if you are non-resident, then officially you cannot sign on to the padron with the town hall since you are not a permanent resident of their town - so you cannot back up your ID with the Padron. Also the vehicle should be registered to your house so that IBI vehicle tax c...

Re: Bottled gas - how does it work?

Also it sounds like your water heater may not have been active for some time when you get there with your new batteries. Having changed your gas bottle, the tube from the bottle will be empty of gas and it may take longer than you expect for it to get through to the water heater for ignition of the ...

You didnt say OP why you need it now, if you do, or are you just wondering what it is ... As I understand it, it is normally issued at the time of transaction on a property sale, and is not normally something you would need to update - it is automatically done at the next transaction along with the ...

Did the vehicle have an MOT done in the UK in your name - would that be useful to show that YOU had THAT vehicle in the UK within the last 12 months? It has been asked before for a person to go to a British Consulate and sign an affidavit that they have come to Spain from the UK, having lived in the...
