Referring to the query about residencia I think I can give the definitive answer.  Mine too was issued in 2011 as an A4 sheet with no expiry date.  After hearing that it may need renewal I contacted my abogado who advised that it needed to be renewed after 5 years.

I duly went along to the oficina de etranjeros in Granada with the necessary paperwork and was issued with the newer card version which shows ‘permanent residency’.  However, I asked the official who served me and she stated quite clearly that this too needs to be renewed every 5 years despite it not showing and expiry date.

Be advised that in contrast to my original registration 5 years ago, this time I had to produce certified bank statements to prove my income, a certificate from the health authority (not my health card) to prove my entitlement to Spanish health care (proof of private health insurance is the only other alternative), a new empadrionamento and proof (in the form of Spanish tax returns) that I do actually live here full time.

It was pointed out to me that a lack of an up to date residencia could affect the application for other official documents like a driving licence or health card if you don’t already have one.

I hope this helps – but please don’t delay.

Services Needed – Pool Grouting

Has anyone in Digameland had their mosaic tile pool re-grouted?

I am going to have to bite the bullet and get mine done before next summer.

I just wondered if anyone has information on whom to call to do it, and how much it may cost for a 7x3mx 1.5m pool.

That’s apart from emptying and refilling it of course.

I am located near Competa.

Thanks for any info.
