If you still own the property you will still get water bills. The majority of those bills is standing charges and tax, not just meter rental (which continues) but, depending on the water company, rubbish removal, sewerage etc. No idea why your last one showed a water useage unless you have outside irrigation or someone used the outside tap.

If you cancel the payments, the water will be cut off and probably cost more to have it reconnected.

You were doing alright, Acer, until that last paragraph. There are loads of school age children from UK here. The school bus comes by us each day and it is packed full of Brit kids. Most of the Dads, however, work back in UK and commute here either weekly or monthly. The schools do take Brit kids and they seem to integrate quite well.

However, 14 would seem a very bad age to do so. The disruption in education would be massive at that age. I have a 14 year old grandson back in UK who is preparing for his mock GCSE (or whatever they are now). Younger kids pick up the language very quickly  but 14 would be a bit too old to do that. Also, here in Spain, kids who don't do particularly well are held back a year and many of those held back are Brits, not because of the language problems but because of the the poor standard, especially in maths. (I get this from some of the parents I talk to). 14 would need to be at an international school which is expensive.

 you really have not got a clue what Brexit involves (Read the Telegraph this morning)

You mean the bit that says any Brit wanting to live in Spain in future may need a permit and prove they have sufficient funds and an income to support themselves? Well, I'm shocked. I mean, fancy having to do that and all because the UK is leaving the EU. It's a good job they don't do that at the moment, eh? 

Or was it the bit about "might" have to pay for a visa? Actually, no. Simply a "discussion" on whether a travel document "may" be needed or "could" come in like the US ESTA. After all, when travelling by plane we don't already have to fill in details, do we? Or could that API thing we get sent have something to do with it? 

And if anyone really wants to read a bit of misinformation and lazy journalism, the link is below. Unfortunately they don't allow comments on their articles anymore. I wonder why?
