Advice Needed Please

We purchased a house last year but are non-resident and have a

Unicaja account. We’ve only had a couple of holidays at the house

so far and everything is very new to us in how the systems work out there.

Does anyone know if this blockage applies to non residents too as we are not pensioners and both work and pay tax in the U.K.

We are due back in August and don’t want any surprises! Thanks for any help or advice. Please reply to digamextra. Thanks M.S.



Legal Workers

(these posts end the subject stream. Thank you everyone. Jane Ed)


I fully support Mark in what he is saying and its true. If you are caught using illegal cash in hand workers you will both be fined.

It’s expensive to be legally self employed here, and we still have a lot

to pay out each month wether we have work or not.

So I would urge people to use legal labour.

Mark is informing people who may be unaware of the situation here in Spain, and not trying to scare people into using his company.

I’m afraid R C needs to wake up and smell the coffee. If someone is on your property doing work for you and they get injured, you are in deep. A really serious injury, like a tree trimmer falling and being paralysed, kiss your house, and more, goodbye. The black economy affects everyone. If they’re not legal your insurance is invalid. Check with your insurance company. Has it happened yet…. no. Will it happen…. I hope not.

Even if you are renting, if you employ someone on behalf of the owner, it’s your problem. Let the owner or agent do the deed. It’s not scaremongering, it’s fact,

Cheers, Keith



Thanks from the CAS Charity

dog & hearts

Costa Animal Society would like to thank everyone for making their 30th Pearl Anniversary Ball such a success.   Special thanks to all the wonderfully generous sponsors and prize givers.

As usual the Flying Dolphins were fantastic and helped to make a really fun evening.

Thanks to all our supporters, we made 2,405 euros all of which goes to the animals.




My cousin is considering a move to the area but she has 2 horses she will bring with her. Is there anyone out there who could offer some advice? Transportation, stabling, feeding, etc.

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.

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
