Re: Retention return. When to get vocal?

Well Spain is going to bite us here for its last time I reckon. Just had an email from our lawyers and it seems the old fashioned and downright underhand way our purchase was handled pre. Andalucia.com days is going to see our retention whittled down to nothing or very little indeed. Oh that's the w...

Re: Retention return. When to get vocal?

Many thanks Guys, Beachy, I will update the thread on how this all goes and thanks once more for your assistance as always. Miro, cracking tip that. First thing tomorrow I'll be emailing and phoning asking this exact question re. this 211. A hell of a shout that. They have to respond to that surely?...

Re: Retention return. When to get vocal?

Just to say, Mrs. has just checked what she calls the transfer deeds and the final payment/return of DAFO retention to us is mentioned there.

Re: Retention return. When to get vocal?

Many thanks once more for that Beach, and yes I mistakenly keep on calling it wealth tax for some reason after all these years! I think your costing of the works seems correct then, as I reported on here the cost of them doing the conveyance was what we thought to be reasonable (for Spain) at 1500e....

Re: Retention return. When to get vocal?

Many thanks Beachy, excellent and clear reply. We are well within time limits then so will await the email back from them to confirm they have/will submit the 210 shortly. I will also ask for a copy of the completed form/declaration too as suggested. Just 2 x numpty points then I'm fully geared up. ...

Retention return. When to get vocal?

Guys it's 2 months exactly since we completed on our house sale. The legal firm who represented us for the sale also said they'd do the forms etc. to enable us to claw this money back. I've heard nothing from them as of yet, I did make a quick call last month and the lady said to call the person dea...

Re: Well, the whatsapp's gone quiet!

A few people are mentioning this to me now about the tie up with Facebook. I guess whenever a "free" service is available it has to get its funds from somewhere.

Well, the whatsapp's gone quiet!

Had a lot of Spanish friend whatsap contacts over there, messages would fly across by the sackful when a big football match was on, also Saturday nights used to see a deluge of pictures fired across of what they were having for the evening meal in the Almacen etc. We were also kept up to date with a...

Re: Cádiz — a personal guide

A couple local, not friends as such but people we chat to when walking 3 years ago said they were doing a Med cruise, every holiday they do a cruise and they said the ship wo...

Re: I'm now free to visit Spain again.

CK, spot on. Agree with all you said in that post! Mark, unlucky yes but avoidable, with risking it many times I thought I'd not get pulled in the last couple of miles of many years driving in Europe!! I remember the stretch and can also remember cars slowing at the point where I was done. Local kno...

Re: I'm now free to visit Spain again.

Good link Beachy, I fully believed there was this chance of trouble if you evade something and then return, that seems to prove it. Many thanks for that.

Re: I'm now free to visit Spain again.

Hmmmm Olive. You now raise a great point here. My OH was 100% straight away on my case to pay. I said no as we'd be in a different car next time. She said "but they'll pull you via your passport number" I'm now thinking they've not even asked for my passport number...........however they o...

Re: I'm now free to visit Spain again.

Thanks Beachy and Sid, yes it's the singling out passing through passport control that bothered me. More than once now I've seen people, even families singled out at the borders after handing over their passports. You just think "drugs" but I'm betting now it could just simply be what we a...

I'm now free to visit Spain again.

Just reluctantly paid my dues for the speeding ticket I got on the last visit. 18 years of driving in Spain and numerous trips across by car so I did well really I guess. Only annoying thing was the ticket was awarded to me after we'd sold up, travelled the width of Spain and was within a few miles ...

Re: Sold the house in Andalucia. Here's how it went.

Thanks for the reply as always Beachy. Yes, that is our fear as you state ie, just how many calls would we get now and in the future with any issue that may arise at a later date. We were put under pressure before completion to abide with some fairly strict clauses and an ultra rapid transaction the...

We've stayed at Tucanda Aranda twice now and for an overnight stop it has everything. A decent restaurant and a self service cafe too, it also has a well stocked shop if you want to buy your own food to prepare. It became our regular first stop over after we left Andalucia for home.

Re: Sold the house in Andalucia. Here's how it went.

Well the postman knocks this morning with a recorded letter, I then see it's from Spain. Retentions returned already I thought, but alas no it wasn't. It was nearly as nice though. The Bilbao authorities I guess must have known we'd sold up and and have sent me a lovely photo of my car in full fligh...
