A few of the ladies were discussing our escituras yesterday afternoon and one pointed out that the most important thing was the actual land registry document. What would it look like? would it be inside the same information as the escitura and how would I distinguish it fromt the other documentation ?

I work part time in local shop and they will not use the air conditioning, when I am working that is. If they come in, on it goes, surely there is a legal obligation regarding working conditions?

Has anyone undergone a medical to be able to continue to drive over here? If so whats the age is it over 60 or 65? Is it not possible to continue with a UK licence, what would be the benefit of swopping to a Spanish licence? Thank you.

You think you have heard it all. The latest, a shop in Baza have defrauded more than Euros 600,000 from 50 clients by asking for loans in the clients names. They haved used the clients DNI identity cards telling the clients they were merely carrying out a solvency check before granting credit but applying to the bank for the loans. How do they think these scams up! So watch out who you are giving your identity details to.

Talking over the weekend about my plight, a local chap said that he just wanted someone to take over his mortgage, he didnt want anything for the house and he would sign over the escitura to whoever was prepared to take on his mortgage. Surely this cant be legal can it? What if the property was signed over then the purchaser stopped paying the mortgage? Would the bank allow someone to do that? I have my doubts.

To may dismay I have received two bills from the townhall for my property. What confuses me is one is for 2008 and the other for 2009, but sent in the same envelope and the 2009 slightly more Euros. My question is what is an Impuesto Sobre Bienes Inmeubles de Naturaleza Urbana - I thought I was paying everything monthly so this has taken me by surprise. Will I have to pay both as the date shows 5t July 2009? Any advice much appreciated. Thank you

I am sure most of us sympathised with the British couple, the Priors who had their home demolished in Almanzora. It has been decided by a court in Madrid that the proceedings leading up to the event were not carried out correctly and therefore the demolition order was not valid. I am glad its been acknowledged but how sad, they are still living in their garage with no utilities. I hope lessons are learnt from this.

I read that Spain are seriously considering going back to Pesetas, would that work? Surely with the administration over here that would be a nightmare, what do others think? SteveB

Does anyone know how long you have after leaving the UK to claim back any tax? My husband joined me over here last April and I just wondered if he may be entitled to any tax back? He worked right up to leaving. Thanks
