Nope, the government has put it on hold until August and will then only introduce it for houses with 5 bedrooms and upwards. The estate agents are hopping mad - they've had to pay thousands to go on the courses to train for the package. And the government has wasted millions, if not billions, pushing the :curse: thing through. Par for the course, innit?

Well, no response from anyone in the area. Are we the only expats in the development? Or the only ones who look at expat sites?

We know the other 2 apartments on our floor are occupied and there are definitely some Brits living in the next entrance. I don't think all the apartments have been sold yet although they are already selling the next phase. The 3-beds are going for about €10K more than we paid in November last year. Well, we paid the deposit then anyway .
Just realised that it's less than a month until we go out again to sort out the furnishings etc.

Looks like we'll be out there week beginning July 9th.

Once we've got the furniture delivered/installed we can pretend we're residents.
Looking forward to a few beers in Dr Antonio Padinha's (at least I think that's how it's spelt) square watching the world go by.

Fat chance, it's only been on the market a week. Fingers crossed, innit.

But I don't really care as the sun is over the yardarm and I've cracked open a bottle - unfortunately it's French red but one can't have everything, can one?
