Does Lisbon have a noise law? I think it covers the period between 10 pm until 7 am, but I'm not sure.

We are moving end of January from London to Estoril and have already found a flat in Estoril. Now we want to make an electricity contract and we discovered that we need a tax number for doing it. We are currently in UK and have no idea where and how to manage it. We are afraid that when we come to PT end of January we are sitting in cold and dark flat because the legal proceeding to get a tax number will take ages. Does anybody have any idea how to manage it from abroad?We don't speak Portuguese unfortunately. still...

I was just able to find a job here and have signed a work contract for 6 months, which I understand is typical for when you're just hired. How long should this take to be approved by whatever government bodies have to take a peek at it and me? What benefits will I have once all the documents are approved, etc? This is such a different way of being hired from what I was used to, so I really need some help.

Need advice on who I might use to move my retirement (USA) over that is sitting in a 401 account. Also, who can I contact about the regulations/taxes I might run into if I make withdrawals. Right now I face tax penalties of 30% if I touch any of the money. Is it the same here?

I've recently been advised to set up an Association for an idea that I have, but am very confused on how to do this and the legal implications of doing so. Does anyone know of any guidelines I can find on this. I have searched the internet and can only find information on American Association and UK Associations. I've got a copy of the constituation, but am not sure how rigidly this needs to be followed, how I'm allowed to fund the Association (i.e. through donations, profits from a local business, subscriptions) and tax related issues. If anyone has any information on this I would be really grateful. Thanks Rose

I was toying with the idea of starting a business over here. Just something like a cafe for English people. How easy is it to do? How many legal things are there to think about?

Hi there, I wondered if anyone on here knew about public rights of way along riversides? We have a riverside plot of land and have just been told by the local sheperdess that her sheep have the right to graze and the right of way through our land - when I explained that we were concerned for the safety of her sheep as we have 14 dogs, she said that we must fence across our land 20 metres back from the river so her sheep can come there. Does anyone know what the laws are regarding this? I know that the public services have access if they want it, but she said that 20 metres back from any river in Portugal is publico and anyone can hunt, fish swim & graze their animals regardless of who owns the land We certainly do not want to be difficult, however persuading our animals that the sheep are not for them is a different matter! Any help would be much appreciated Many thanks Debs & Johnny
