I am thinking of relocating to the Algarve and working. I have been told that I need all sorts of documents before I can be offered a job, which include a NEF, Social Security Number etc. Does anyone know how hard these things are to get and what costs are involved. Any info would be much appreciated

We are in the process of purchasing an appartment in the Algarve.The transaction has dragged on (due to the vendor) since May last year.In that time the current market value is considerably lower than we have offerred.As the deal has taken so long to complete I have had several changes of heart and now wondering if it is a good idea after all.One reason is that we are now paying over the odds for it...does 'gazundering' happen in Portugal? If we pull out now and go in with a new lower offer the monies lost would be equivalent to the devaluation in price. What to do? any advice welcome. The appartment is in Burgau in the centre of old village,so prime location.

I've just started a job here and need to open a bank account asap. Can anyone recommend a good one. I don't need to do anything special. Just have my wages paid in and get a debit card. Are there any that are better when making international bank transfers?

When I signed a rental deal on my flat my landlord asked me if i wanted receipts for my rent. I said no, but now, according to someone at work, I have learnt that you can apparently claim tax back on rent paid if you have receipts. Is this true?

Does anyone know anything about claiming tax back? I've been living here for less than a year so I am apparently entitled to claim back some of the tax I paid last year. Who do I need to speak to about this?
