Re: eBay and Correos

Just make sure you give Parcel2Go the correct measurements, and that the item won't "shift" ionside the packaging. I sent an awkward shaped item, which distorted en route to the depot, so when they measured it, it was greater in one dimension than I had said. I was charged extra, plus a pe...

Re: How to deal with dry hair caused by shampoo ?

I wouldn't think a forum about Andalucia is going to be a lot of help with a hair problem (unless you are asking about Spanish hair products ;-) )

Re: Roofing Costs

Can you remove the old beams, have the new roof done & then incorporate the old beams back inside ? When we reformed our casa, the builder added some 'old' beams to our living room ceiling as a gift - a shrewd move, as we liked them so much we paid for the remaining downstairs rooms to be done a...

Re: Waste disposal

There are one or two that I've seen on the Costa, run by expats. I think Cudeca (cancer charity) has one somewhere, and I'm sure places like the Donkey sanctuary (El Refugio Burrito) or an animal rescue charity would be happy to collect if they are able to, just google charity donations of furniture...

Re: Bottled gas - how does it work?

I'm in UK, but have a problem with my boiler - if the water tank is too low it won't fire up - fill the tank (there is a little lever underneath the 'works' that lets water into it), and press a reset button to bring it back to life. I don't know if this is any use to you, but I thought I'd mention ...

Re: Obtaining Spanish passport

Hi
As Sid has just said - this is what you need: https://www.gov.uk/get-document-legalised - very straightforward :-) I did it a couple of years ago as part of an inheritance.

Re: Spain isnt cheap

A block of flats has a 'Flying Freehold' but I'm not sure how it works - my late hubby was a Chartered Surveyor & I remember him telling this, but not the ins & outs. Probably Google could help now you have the proper phrase ?

Puzzled by crossword clue !!

Doing an old Guardian daily quick crossword, and there was a clue that stumped me - "Small Spanish grocery & wine store" 6 letters. The answer was "bodega" - I thought that was one of the wine/sherry storage cellars/ vinyards. Maybe I just haven't been around Spain long enoug...

Re: Comments and queries re FAQ for Non-resident income tax

I don't know if this will help - I hope so ! My bank (Unicaja) has a section for paying bills, including Renta. I do not have a digital cert, so I fill out the modelo, and then pay online via Unicaja. I then send (by post) a copy of the completed modelo to the tax office (in Antequera in my case) wi...

Re: Logging on.

I find I have to log in if I use a different computer (ie laptop), and then when I some back to the pc I have to log in again. It also happens when I run some cleaning software such as ccleaner.

This is the first time I have seen 'wikki' used on here, & it made me chuckle, as the lady in our village shop called it that, & hubby & I were initially flummoxed until the penny dropped :lol:
