Re: Home owner after 31st December 2020

Thank you everyone. It seems to be looking as if everything will be much as it is now but with the on line forms that have come into place since Covid. Seems as if 90 days is the key length, with 180...

Re: Martin Fadesa apartment deposits

Interesting to hear that as nothing came our way. I wonder if anything came of it or did everyone just end up paying more to a Spanish solicitor?

Re: More advice on Capital Gains on the sale of Property needed

Thanks for your comments. I have found an error on the return our accountant did for us which I think is what has caused this second letter to come from the Portuguese IRS. So we have emailed our...

Re: Looking to move to Portugal for spring/summers

Eastern Algarve definitely the best. Affordable, good weather - few winds, lower cost of living, good mix of expats from all walks of life. 100000 euros will still buy you a decent apartment, but...
