Re: Advice on Belgium

You will need to register at the local council for both you and your son if you intend to stay any longer than 3 months. And unless you can get a temporary stay visa you will likely have to get a...

Re: Where is a safe place to buy property in Southern Europe?

I think the bigger question is why do you want to buy property?

Is it for an investment, holiday home or do you actually want to live there and make it a home?

Re: What has pissed you off today

Well it worked to a point, kind of, and by that I mean not at all.

Re: What has pissed you off today

This isn't a terrible idea and I think we might look into that when we move again but it kind of defeats the purpose of getting mail. I might as well go shopping.

Re: Gardening in the Pinoso area

Unless there is any specific soil problem then I can't see why not. You may have to protect them from sub zero temps though.

Re: Carrefour

Veg is pretty good here, we generally go to a local farm and can buy a weeks worth of excellent quality veg for 6 or 7 euros, normally it's not even that much if I'm honest.
The tomatoes are the...

Re: Premier League

I wouldn't worry about it, there is a fair chance Moyes will pay you lot for him.

Re: Is there a list of places that EU citizens can "freely" migrate to?

It doesn't really work that way though, as Mitzy boy uses Spain as an example most countries in the EU have a similar sort of process, maybe not all, you'd have to research that.
While in essence...

Re: Would you buy now?

We got it from the bank direct, two banks actually but seeing as we are with Sabadell I can positively report that is what we were told and is the current standing.

Re: Would you buy now?

Well, this is probably true and we are yet to be offered anything from the bank, not through lack of asking but they so far have said look at the public website.

Re: Would you buy now?

I guess it all depends on what someone wants. No doubt it is best to shop around banks and see just what they can offer you, if we were seriously wanting to buy then that's what we'd do but I have no...

Re: Would you buy now?

I wouldn't have an issue buying now but it doesn't mean we will. If I could say with any certainty that we will still be here in 10 or 15 years then it wouldn't be a question, we'd buy.

Re: advice please re UK tv in Spain

Exactly, In Belgium we had all the BBCs although they split it up throughout the packages so you had to get one of the premium ones to combine them.
I'd gladly pay similar for canal+ if they did the...
