Hello all,My Brother and family are buying a place in Bolnuevo. The deposit is paid and contracts signed, but they are hearing nothing from the bank (they are taking over an existing mortgage and paying a lump sum off it). His query is"Would anybody be able to answer the following questions:Would it be common for the bank to carry out the property survey (they have done so) if they weren't going to make us a mortgage offer?Or is it a good sign that they have done the survey and might thismean that all our financil paperwork and so on, was satisfactory?"Regards to all.Pat

Does anyone know of a travel insurance company that doesn't charge the earth just because I live in Spain? I used to get excellent prices when I lived in the UK but the same companies are charging horrendous prices because I'm travelling from Spain.

Hi, Can anyone recommend a courier company, I've looked at Seur, Nazex and Fastaway, but they don't really offer what i need. I'm looking for a courier that would possible even as a single load be prepared to go to Barcelona, Madrid, Gibraltar maybe even Portugal and collect large pallet size consignments and deliver them either to somewhere else in Spain or return them to Mazarron. Loads can be many double height size pallets down to single half pallets.Does anyone know of a company that offers this sort of service? Many thanks.

Is there a bank in Spain that provides free banking – I know it is never free but you know what I mean – we are always arguing with our Bank over charges for things they gave us that we didn’t want like credit cards.

We have visited the mar menor many times and love the area (just back from our latest holiday). We plan to buy in the region towards the end of next year. With the current property problems would we be better waiting to see if the prices drop further or has the local property market reached its lowest point. We could buy now and rent out the property until we are ready to move or would we be better to wait for until next year?

To settle an argument - If you have a child in Spain do they qualify for a British or a Spanish passport or both. I say that the passport is dependent on the Nationality of the parents and not the country of birth.

I understand tax returns are now due and believe have up to end of June to submit. My first return is due as am now resident. So can anyone recommend how best to go about it. Probably too complicated to do myself? My affairs are very simple - a State Pension and a small private one and I can compile the figures easily enough myself.

Hello, we are asking for your help and your opinion before starting a new business aimed at the Camposol Urbanizacion. We are considering an internet based home delivery system for food and drink. The product would be ordered on the internet or by phone and delivered on set days every week. The vans are dual temperatured and can deliver frozen food as well as ambient dry goods plus drinks including water, wine, beer and spirits all at very competitive prices. The idea is to offer the residents of Camposol plus nearby other areas the opportunity to experience the advantages of home deliveries such as; 1, No need to go shopping in 30 degrees of heat. 2, No petrol costs in travelling to the supermarkets 3, frozen English branded food delivered to your door frozen and not partially defrosted. 4,Heavy items such as drinks, cans and bottled water delivered right to your door 5, All your favourite English branded goods at very competitive prices saving you money!! 6, House bound customers either through illness or no car can have product delivered. Before we commit ourselves to the very large financial expenditure of setting up this business we would appreciate hearing your views and opinions on if their is a demand for this kind of service and what kind of product you would like to order. We thank you in advance for your kind co-operation in this matter in helping us make a very important business decision. Jonathan
