My answer to rental laws
1. Please send me a private message to the e-mail address below with your address and/or number ¨polígono¨ and number ¨parcela¨. You will find these details on page 2 or 3 on your escritura. I will do a free check for you so that you will know whether your land is classified as urban or rural;
2. Apart from this I know a lawyer in Torrox-Costa who has been helping lots of people with similar cases regarding the new rental law lately.

Summer work wanted

I am a British lady in her fifties looking for employment for the period 11 July to 9 September, all or part. I currently work as an English teacher but my contract is only for the 9 month period of the school year and I need additional work to supplement my income. My Spanish is still very basic, so I wouldn’t be able to work as a waitress, shop assistant, etc. where it would be necessary to speak to the general public.

I live near Benajarafe and am reliant on public transport. I would be prepared to work anywhere along the coast road from Rincon de la Victoria to Velez-Malaga. If you know of any employment opportunities or need further information please email me. Thank you.

Services Available –Dog Sitting

Need to travel and you can not take your dog with you?
Don’t worry I am a lady who loves animals and I would be happy to care for them for a reasonable price.
I live in a semidetached in Nerja with my two rescue dogs. Both are friendly and they will be more than happy to have some friends at home.

My house is my dogs’ house so it’s allowed to go wherever they want.

It’s the same for every guest dog.

I have a sunny porch and a cooler courtyard but doors are always opened so they can be wherever they like to be.
I also foster from time to time some abandoned dogs rescue for APA Nerja or for “Asociacion Ladridos Vagabundos” in Granada where my dogs come from.

So you could ask them references about me.
If you want me to look after your dogs please email me or send a whatsapp

Recommendation-Needed for kitchen reform

We are near Competa and are looking for a company that can completely reform our kitchen, including removal of a (non-supporting) wall. There are many in the area so we are hoping that some digamigocan recommend a company. Replies please to Digamextra as others may be interested as well.  Lara



Recommendation Needed –Printer

I have been having a problem with my Epson printer.I need to buy a new one. Can anyone recommend where I can buy one please?

Please do not suggest Eroski: this is where I bought the current one.It’s not possible to return faulty printers to them. They say it is necessary to deal directly with the manufacturer. I need to buy from a dealer who will help if there is a problem. In the UK, of course, the company who sold the product is responsible. However this is Spain!

I have spoken to Epson, a local repairer in Nerja and even the cartridge supplier without any solution.

The price of expert repair is disproportionate to the price of a new machine.

Any advice appreciated.

TC-ME smallHow to place an article on DigameXtra!

Send an email to janekirkspain @ gmail (dot) com

The subject line of the email should be what you’d like to see as your heading – otherwise, I choose a subject line

The text of the email should be what you’d like to see published – but note:

 Prices must be included with items for sale.

If your first attempt to sell fails, note that a second attempt will not be allowed unless the original price is reduced considerably, nor for at least 2 weeks later.

Photos will only be published once.

Photos must be in JPG or JPEG Format

Please do not send ads for property / real estate.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,    days of the week “Monday”

You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

This is not a service for local companies to exploit.

The decision about what to publish is mine, if I don’t want to publish then I won’t.

About Photos and other attachments

If you want to send a picture please send it as an attachment to your email, in JPG or JPEG format and try and keep the size down to around 200KB.

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor. 

New Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
