Re: Sold house- extortionate bank fees!

I was in a similar position, high charges. I opened an account at the same bank as the bankers draft was from.

Hourly Billing from Endesa

Does anyone know how to sign up for this. We have a smart meter and online billing. I understood we can view the electricity use by the hour. Nothing on their internet billing site. Thanks

Re: Vertical Blinds

Thanks....however they are so much cheaper in the UK even with the courier costs. I think I have now found a company that can supply these, very good quality and a good range of colours, waiting for my sample colour swatches.

Vertical Blinds

We have looked in loads of shops bit they are all a bit 'flimsy' choice of colour very limited, and very expensive. Have found several suppliers in the UK, huge choice of colours and very reasonably priced, but they won't deliver to Spain. Why is that so difficult ?? Has anyone ordered these from th...

Re: Septic tank!

Having problems with our septic tank, it's about 10 years old. We need to have it emptied every 6 months, only 2 people using it. Do the more up to date septic tanks function correctly with shower, washing machine water etc. We were told that as we put everything into it a new one will not be an imp...

Re: PIZARRA AREA NEW TAX

Update....Another person has mentioned about the guy on the bicycle, another wooden house, he was confronted by the owner who asked for ID, which he wouldn't provide and quickly went. He was in the trees taking photographs of the house. Sounds like some sort of scam, maybe potential burglar. So keep...

Re: PIZARRA AREA NEW TAX

Enrique, No it's true a not close neighbour told me this morning. Yes we pay IBI etc etc, maybe it's because he has a wooden house and although the council know it's there they say they can't charge him IBI so maybe he's got a bit muddled and it's only for houses in his situation, though he did say ...

Living in the campo we are plagued by flies, tried everything, we are now using lemon and 3 days later it's still working so we may have cracked it.

Agricultural water

We have to install a new pipe to the drain where the agricultural water comes in. Is there an office in Malaga that deals with this ?
